“He has been a great friend and a business partner, and we’ve had a lot of fun over the years,” Cavner said of the golf legend. “I convince him every year to come back and see us. … I had breakfast this morning and he told me if he was still healthy, ‘I’ll be back next year if I’m healthy.’ That’s pretty good.”

Cavner said the event drew in $25 million, with charitable donations going to Allina Health and to local junior golf programs.

“That’s our No. 1 goal here, is to put on a great show and raise a lot of money here in the local community,” he said.

Jottings

Ra’Shede Hageman was doing a great job making the transition from defensive tackle, which he played for the Gophers, to defensive end for the Atlanta Falcons in his first NFL training camp. But word came down Sunday that Hageman broke his wrist in a fight with center Joe Hawley. “I think we’re all talking about competing and fighting for jobs, but we’re not talking about fighting each other,” Falcons coach Mike Smith told reporters. “We’ve got to understand that. It’s not what we’re about.”

• No doubt the Wilf family, owners of the Vikings, set a big goal for acquiring a Major League Soccer team for their new stadium when they joined with Relevant Sports, a New York-based soccer promotion company owned by Miami Dolphins owner Steve Ross. The word among soccer officials is that the partnership will help the Vikings land an MLS franchise.

• For years, the Gophers men’s and women’s basketball teams had to share Williams Arena to practice, but that will no longer be an issue with the women practicing at Williams and the men in the newly remodeled basketball facility in the Bierman Building.

Cody Poock, the highly rated former Iowa Western linebacker who was counted as a Gophers starter until he injured his knee in spring practice, is doing some light practice in early drills but is most likely to be redshirted this year, unless the team has a shortage of linebackers when Poock becomes healthy enough to play later in the season.

• The Minneapolis-based Mortenson Construction Company is part of a group attempting to win the bid to build the new Atlanta Braves stadium for $672 million.
