Allstate Sugar Bowl Sponsors Tommy Moore Memorial Junior Golf Championship on Friday and Saturday
NEW ORLEANS – The Allstate Sugar Bowl and the Kelly Gibson Foundation will host 84 of the nation’s top-ranked boys’ and girls’ junior golfers for the eighth annual Tommy Moore Memorial Junior Golf Championship on December 27-28. The event will be held at TPC Louisiana.
Tee times will start at 8:30 a.m. on Friday, December 27 and 8 a.m. on Saturday, December 28. The post-tournament awards ceremony is expected to take place at approximately 2:30 p.m. on Saturday. Winners will be recognized in both the boys’ and girls’ divisions.
Tommy Moore was the most accomplished junior golfer to ever emerge from the New Orleans area. In 1980, Tommy was ranked No. 1 in the Golf Digest Junior World Rankings and went on to have a decorated collegiate career at Oklahoma State University where he was an All-American, National Champion, and Academic All-American.
After playing on the PGA TOUR for three seasons, Tommy Moore’s life was cut short at the young age of 35 due to a rare blood disease. In his memory, the Kelly Gibson Foundation partners with the Allstate Sugar Bowl to host this national event that recognizes the impact Tommy made on junior golf and the New Orleans community.
The Allstate Sugar Bowl has established itself as one of the premier college football bowl games, having hosted 28 national champions, 93 Hall of Fame players, 50 Hall of Fame coaches and 18 Heisman Trophy winners in its 85-year history. The 86th Allstate Sugar Bowl Football Classic, featuring top teams from the Big 12 and the SEC, will be played on January 1, 2020. In addition to football, the Sugar Bowl Committee annually invests over $1.6 million into the community through the hosting and sponsorship of sporting events, awards and clinics. Through these efforts, the organization supports and honors nearly 100,000 student-athletes each year, while injecting over $2.5 billion into the local economy in the last decade.
