The full 14-team field of NCAA head coaches and celebrity alumni will compete in the tournament round of the Chick-fil-A Bowl Challenge tomorrow, for a share of the $500,000 scholarship purse.

The Chick-fil-A Bowl Challenge is the nation’s premier head coach and celebrity golf gathering and takes place April 28-30 on the picturesque courses at Reynolds Plantation, located on Lake Oconee outside Atlanta.  A significant contributor to the Chick-fil-A Bowl’s yearly charitable and scholarship donation efforts, the Chick-fil-A Bowl Challenge’s main event features teams composed of a university head coach and a celebrity or former athlete from the same school competing in a scramble format against other university teams from around the country.  In 2012, the tournament raised more than $765,000 in charity and scholarship.
