In July of 2002, the University of Minnesota golf programs and the Tournament Players Club of the Twin Cities announced plans for the TPC of the Twin Cities to become the new home for Golden Gopher golf. The Gophers will have special access to the Club including practice and play privileges during the fall and spring seasons. The teams will have access to the back end of the practice area and special short-game area for privacy.

In addition, the Senior PGA Tour's 3M Championship, held annually at the TPC of the Twin Cities, has pledged $150,000 to support the Gopher golf team and is working on a scholarship endowment for future years.

"The University of Minnesota golf team displayed incredible resilience and determination during a very difficult time," PGA Tour Commissioner Tim Finchem said. "We are pleased to be able to offer our support to Coach Brad James and his national championship team through the use of our Tournament Players Club and the financial commitment of the 3M Championship."

"This is yet another illustration of how the PGA Tour and the Senior PGA Tour support the communities in which they play," Finchem added. "We also believe strongly in the importance of collegiate golf programs and the powerful impact they have on developing future Tour members and leaders within the golf industry." The use of the TPC of the Twin Cities will be particularly important to the continued success of the team, James said.

"This is the greatest thing that can happen for our recruiting efforts at the University of Minnesota, to have a world-class practice facility like the TPC of the Twin Cities," said James. "This is a great opportunity for the University of Minnesota and the TPC of the Twin Cities to form a long-lasting relationship, and I look forward to working with the TPC in the future."

"The members and staff at the TPC of the Twin Cities are very excited about adding the University of Minnesota Gopher golf teams to our facility," said Ken Lane, General Manager and Director of Golf at the TPC of the Twin Cities. "Local residents and companies have another proud reason to enjoy membership at the TPC."

The Tournament Players Club of the Twin Cities is a private golf club that opened in June 2000 as Minnesota's first and only PGA Tour golf facility. The championship golf course, designed by Arnold Palmer along with PGA Tour player consultant and former Golden Gopher All-American Tom Lehman, is located approximately 20 minutes north of the University of Minnesota's downtown campus.
