Past champion Cameron Champ withdraws from 3M Open after birth of first child

BLAINE, Minn. — There aren’t many situations where past champions of a PGA Tour event will miss heading back to a place where they’ve made special memories.

Cameron Champ has a pretty good reason for withdrawing from the 3M Open at TPC Twin Cities, which he did Thursday morning before his scheduled afternoon tee time. Champ and his wife, Jessica Birdsong, welcomed their first child Sunday evening, a baby boy.

The three-time PGA Tour winner was going to try to make it to Minneapolis on Wednesday night or Thursday morning but decided to remain home.

Chris Stroud replaced Champ in the field.

Champ won the 3M Open in 2021 and needed a good week, as he sits 136th in the FedEx Cup standings with the playoffs beginning in two weeks.

Instead, he has a new trophy at home to take care of.
