Greensboro, GA — The Georgia team of head football coach Kirby Smart and former Bulldog quarterback David Dukes finished second this week at the 2016 Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl Challenge at the Reynolds Lake Oconee Resort.

The Georgia duo finished at nine under par, two shots behind the winning team from Ole Miss.

Team winnings will be split evenly between endowed scholarships at the universities and foundations or charities of the coach’s choice. The Chick-fil-A Peach 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 $540,000 scholarship purse.

In addition to the $540,000 charity and scholarship purse, another $124,500 was generated for charitable organizations.
