Last year: Trailing by a stroke after the second round, Jay Haas took advantage of off days by those ahead of him. He shot a 4-under-par 68 to win the tournament by a shot over Peter Senior, Kenny Perry and Minnesota native Tom Lehman. Haas hadn't won since 2009.

The field: Led by Lehman, last year's seasonlong Charles Schwab Cup points winner, the top 10 players from last year's money list are scheduled to appear in the 3M Championship. The field includes eight past champions of the event, 15 players who won major championships on the PGA Tour and five members of the World Golf Hall of Fame. Fred Couples and Tom Watson, who both played in the 3M Championship last season, are not in the field. Nor is Roger Chapman, a two-time major winner on the Champions Tour this season. He withdrew from the Senior British Open on Friday with a neck injury and is still rehabilitating.

The Greats: Arnold Palmer is back to highlight the Greats of Golf event Saturday and Sunday. Lee Trevino, Chi Chi Rodriguez, Dave Stockton, Don January and Billy Casper are also among the 14 veteran players who will make appearances and sign autographs. Nine of the 14 will play in an exhibition challenge.
