Allstate Sugar Bowl Intercollegiate Golf ChampionshipFor the seventh straight year, Tulane University and the Allstate Sugar Bowl teamed up to bring many of the nation's top women's collegiate golfers to the Crescent City for the Allstate Sugar Bowl Intercollegiate Golf Championship (February 19-21, 2017) at the English Turn Golf & Country Club. The three-day, 54-hole event usually features 18 holes each day on the par-72, 6,105-yard course. However, due to weather issues, the event included 18 holes on Sunday, followed by a 36-hole marathon on Monday.
Tommy Moore Memorial Junior Golf ChampionshipThe 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 sixth annual event was held on December 28-29, 2016 at English Turn Golf & Country Club.
The 2016 Girls' 13-18 Division was won by 15-year old Yujeong Son from Norman, Okla., her second straight title. Jack Gnam from Ridgeland, Miss., won the Boys' 16-18 Division.
In conjunction with the TMMJGC, the Allstate Sugar Bowl also awards four $2,500 scholarships each summer at the Kelly Gibson Foundations' annual banquet.

Allstate Sugar Bowl TMMJGC Champions
Tommy Moore was one of the best junior golfers to ever emerge from the New Orleans area. He was ranked the No. 1 junior golfer in the United States by Golf Digest magazine in 1980. A very accomplished junior and collegiate golfer, he went on to earn his PGA Tour Card, and won the Nike Tour Boise open in 1993.
Moore and Kelly Gibson, also a PGA Tour Professional and New Orleans native, grew up together playing golf on the Westbank and eventually travelled the world together while competing on the PGA Tour. Not only were they fellow athletes, but also best friends. Sadly, Moore died of a rare blood disease in 1998 at the age of 36. Hosting the Tommy Moore Memorial Junior Golf Championship at Lakewood Golf Club where Tommy and Kelly played in so many tournaments as juniors is especially meaningful to both the Moore Family and the New Orleans golf community as a whole.
In addition to honoring Tommy Moore's legacy of achievement and integrity, the TMMJGC will also increase exposure for the Allstate Sugar Bowl as Presenting Partner of the tournament. Proceeds from this championship will go into a scholarship fund for members of The Kelly Gibson Junior Golf Tour. Each year, the Kelly Gibson Junior Golf Tour awards thousands of dollars in college scholarships to its eligible participants. Scholarships are awarded based on community service, grade point average, and financial need, not golfing ability.
