GREENSBORO, Ga. - Ole Miss head football coach Hugh Freeze and former hoops star Sean Tuohy turned in a strong showing at the 2013 Chick-fil-A Bowl Challenge golf tournament, which ended Tuesday and raised $664,000 toward scholarships and charities.

The Ole Miss duo combined to win $26,667 for scholarship funds by finishing in a tie for eighth place at 5-under par (against their handicaps) with Auburn and Mississippi State in the 14-team field.

Miami won the tournament at 11-under.

On Monday, Freeze placed second in the coaches' Long Drive Competition for the second-straight year with a 291-yard drive.

Tuohy won the celebrity division's Closest to the Pin contest by coming to within 3 feet, 2 inches of the hole. With that shot, he earned $5,000 in scholarship money for his alma mater.

The Chick-fil-A Bowl Challenge is the country's premier head coach and celebrity charity golf event featuring NCAA head coaches and former athletes and celebrities from the same school competing against their rivals for a share of a $520,000 scholarship purse.

In addition to the $520,000 scholarship purse, another $144,000 was generated for charitable organizations including Chick-fil-A's WinShape Homes foster care program. Over the last seven years, the event has contributed a total of $3.8 million in scholarship and charity, helping make the Chick-fil-A Bowl college football's most charitable bowl game.
