5/2/2007 - Golf

GREENSBORO, Ga. -- The Virginia Tech team of football coach
Frank Beamer and former basketball star Dell Curry won the
Chick-fil-A Bowl Alma Mater golf tournament Tuesday, a win that
will benefit families of the massacre on the Virginia Tech campus.

Beamer and Curry combined for a 10-under 62 to top the San Diego
State team of Chuck Long and Marshall Faulk by one stroke at
Reynolds Plantation.

"We had a great round and a lot of fun," Curry said. "You put
Frank and me together and we make one pretty good golfer."

Said Beamer: "I hit a few good shots and Dell hit a lot of
great shots."

Twelve college teams were competing for $275,000 in scholarship

At the request of Beamer and Curry, their $100,000 first-place
prize will be donated to the Hokie Spirit Memorial Fund, which
benefits families of the April 16 massacre.

Houston's Tom Penders and Doug Drabek and Wake Forest's Jim
Grobe and Billy Packer tied for third at 5 under, one stroke ahead
of Georgia Tech's Chan Gailey and Jon Barry.

The event will be broadcast on CBS on Christmas.
