Swinney, Fuller Paired in Charity Golf Event

ATLANTA – The Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl Challenge today announced the official pairings for its 10th annual charity golf tournament. A 13-team field of NCAA head coaches and celebrity alumni will compete for a first-place prize of $100,000 in scholarship and charity. All participating teams will receive a portion of the $540,000 total purse.

“We created this event to help fulfill our mission to positively impact people’s lives through best-in-class events that create scholarships and charitable donations,” said Gary Stokan, president and CEO of Peach Bowl, Inc.

Over the past nine years, the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl Challenge has provided $5.3 million in scholarship and charity. Proceeds from the event benefit endowed scholarships at the participating universities and charitable foundations selected by the coaches, benefitting a wide range of organizations throughout the Southeast and the nation.

The Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl Challenge is a significant contributor to the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl’s overall charitable and scholarship donations, which total more than $19.5 million since 2002, making the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl college football’s most charitable bowl game.

Competing teams will play a two-man scramble format over 18 holes using confirmed handicap adjustments. Schools will be paired for a shotgun start on the first nine holes and then re-paired, based on scores, and the round will continue with consecutive tee times for the second nine holes.
