Tommy Moore Memorial Golf Championship

The Kelly Gibson Foundation, in partnership with Allstate Sugar Bowl, operates the Tommy Moore Memorial Junior Golf Championship (TMMJGC), a two-day tournament held in New Orleans with the field comprised of top-rated boys and girls ages 13-18 from throughout the Gulf South Region and across the country. The ninth annual event will be held on December 27-28, 2019 at TPC of 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.
In conjunction with the TMMJGC, the Allstate Sugar Bowl also awards four scholarships worth a total of $15,000 each summer at the Kelly Gibson Foundations’ annual banquet.
