AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - First Tee - Augusta is excited to announce the Drive for Show, Rock Fore! Dough will go virtual this year.

At 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, you can watch benefit performances from Luke Combs, Darius Rucker, Jake Owen, Josh Kelley, and Drew Holcomb online on Rock Fore! Dough social media sites. This entire event is free of charge.

“As much as we would love to welcome golf and music fans back to our driving range, the safety of concert-goers, staff, and artists remains our top priority,” said Jill Brown, First Tee - Augusta Executive Director. “But the thought of not continuing the tradition of great music from amazing artists to support our organization was not acceptable either, so we’ve got an amazing show to stream!”

This concert is presented by the Murray Brothers Caddyshack & William Murray Golf. Over the years, the Rock Fore! Dough concerts have raised over $1.65 Million for First Tee - Augusta. While 2021 is the first time it will be a virtual show, it’s the 17th year this Masters week tradition will be part of golf week in Augusta.

“This concert has not only become a favorite event for local Augustans and out-of-town guests on Tuesday of Masters Week, it is also a substantial part of First Tee - Augusta’s yearly fundraising efforts,” Event producer Joe Stevenson said in the release. “This year, rather than buying a ticket to a show, we hope viewers that log on for free will make a donation directly to the organization. We will have some great donation incentives like tee-shirts, tickets to the 2022 show, VIP packages, autographed items, and more.”

Stevenson’s company, Gluestick Music, helped create Rock Fore! Dough to build awareness and raise funding for First Tee - Augusta.
