GREENSBORO, Ga. — Miami football coach Al Golden and former Hurricanes Heisman Trophy winner Gino Torretta have won the Chick-fil-A Bowl Challenge charity golf tournament.
The Miami team’s 11-under round beat South Carolina’s Steve Spurrier and Sterling Sharpe by one stroke on Tuesday, winning the first-place scholarship prize of $125,000.
Georgia Tech’s two-time defending champion team of Paul Johnson and former basketball star Jon Barry finished tied for third with Clemson’s Dabo Swinney and Steve Fuller in the annual tournament at the Reynolds Plantation resort.
The event pairs coaches with a celebrity or former athlete from the coach’s school.
Among other coaches playing in the event were Virginia Tech’s Frank Beamer, Alabama’s Nick Saban, Wake Forest’s Jim Grobe, Auburn’s Gus Mulzahn, Mississippi State’s Dan Mullen, Ohio State’s Urban Meyer and Ole Miss’ Hugh Freeze.
