Allstate Sugar Bowl Golf


Allstate Sugar Bowl Intercollegiate Golf Championship

For the eighth straight year, Tulane University and the Allstate Sugar Bowl will team 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 18-20, 2018) at English Turn Golf and Country Club. The three-day, 54-hole event will feature 18 holes each day on the par-72, 6,200-yard course.

In the 2017 event, Stanford University overcame a seven-stroke first-round deficit to win its first Allstate Sugar Bowl Intercollegiate Golf Championship. Haley Moore from Arizona won the individual title, holding off Stanford’s Andrea Lee.

The Cardinal came into the tournament ranked No. 1 in the nation, but trailed No. 11 Miami, 287-293 after Sunday’s opening round. With inclement weather in the forecast for Tuesday, tournament officials opted to play 36 holes on Monday and Stanford notched a blistering 278 in the second round before tallying a 293 to close out the event on top with an overall score of 863.

No. 3 Florida was second at 874, followed by No. 20 Oklahoma State (875), No. 23 Arizona (875) and Miami (877). Tulane finished in 15th place in the 17-team field with a 912.

Tommy Moore Memorial Junior 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 seventh annual event is scheduled for December 27-28, 2017 at TPC of Louisiana.

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, and Trey Morse was the Boys’ 13-15 Champion.

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.
