Saban and former Crimson Tide football player Chris Mohr shot a 3-under-par 68 to win $10,000 in scholarship money for Alabama on at the 2011 Chick-fil-A Bowl Challenge charity golf tournament at Reynolds Plantation outside Atlanta.
Over the past five years, the Chick-fil-A Bowl Challenge has provided more than $2.5 million in scholarship and charity to its participating universities.
The event culminates with a made-for-TV round featuring university head coaches and celebrity alums competing for scholarship money for their schools.
