Paul Johnson, Jon Barry Set For Chick-fil-A Challenge Monday, Tuesday

April 25, 2014

Paul Johnson and former Yellow Jacket basketball standout Jon Barry are joining forces again to compete in the annual Chick-fil-A Bowl (Golf) Challenge Monday (skills competition) and Tuesday (Challenge) at Reynolds Plantation. There are 11 two-man teams competing for the first-place prize of $125,000 in scholarship funds.

For complete details, visit the Chick-fil-A Challenge web site.

Participants report to Reynolds Plantation Sunday for check-in, a reception, auction and other events. The 11 duos hit the course on Monday for a pro-am, followed by the annual skills competition. On Tuesday morning, the real competition begins with an 18-hole best-ball format.

Johnson and Barry won the event in back-to-back years, in 2011 and 2012. They’ll be paired Tuesday with Virginia Tech’s Frank Beamer and Dell Curry, the 2007 Chick-fil-A Challenge champions.

Other teams represented: Alabama (Nick Saban, Mark Ingram); Ole Miss (Hugh Freeze, Sean Tuohy); North Carolina (Larry Fedora, Roy Williams); South Carolina (Steve Spurrier, Sterling Sharpe); Mississippi State (Dan Mullen, Fred McCray); NC State (Dave Doeren, Terry Harvey); Auburn (Gus Malzahn, Bo Jackson); Clemson (Dabo Swinney, Steve Fuller); Cincinnati (Tommy Tuberville, J.K. Schaffer).

The Chick-fil-A Bowl Challenge has provided $4.03 million in scholarship and charitable contributions. The Challenge is a significant contributor to the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl’s overall charitable and scholarship donations, which total more than $17 million since 2002, making the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl college football’s most charitable bowl game.

The tournament is being taped by ESPN for broadcast in August and December. Specific air dates will be announced this summer.
