Swinney, Fuller to play in charity golf tournament

ATLANTA (July 30, 2015) – On Saturday, fans can tune in to see the Tigers duo of Head Football Coach Dabo Swinney and former Clemson and NFL quarterback Steve Fuller compete in the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl Challenge charity golf tournament. The event will be nationally telecast on ESPNU on Saturday, Aug. 1 in a one-hour special starting at 3 p.m. ET.

The Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl Challenge features the top coaches from around the nation partnered with celebrity alumni in two-man teams competing for a charity and scholarship purse of $520,000. Team Clemson split its winnings between Dabo’s “All In Team” Foundation and an endowed scholarship at Clemson University.

“We’ve got a great lineup of coaches and celebrities representing the top programs from around the country,” said Gary Stokan, President & CEO of Peach Bowl, Inc. “This event is so special because it not only provides an inside look into these coaches’ personalities and level of competition, but an opportunity for these teams to give back to their universities and charities.”
