EVANS, GA (WFXG) -

Grace Potter and the Nocturnals played at the Lady Antebellum Amphitheater during Tuesday's Rock Fore! Dough concert; but they came prepared to play the Augusta National too.

"I've got my green jacket on," said band member Matthew Burr. Potter said, "I'll be his caddy, I'll let him do the golfing."

Of course their chance of playing in the Masters isn't good; but that isn't stopping them from dreaming big.

Burr said, "She's going to wait for me at the 19th hole and meanwhile I'll be out there playing around with Bubba Watson and Tiger."

But the men of NEEDTOBREATHE have some different opinions on who will take home this year's green jacket.

"I went Sergio I think, I'm going Tiger, he's going with the obvious, I'm going Kevin Streelman, he's one of our buddies," said band members Bear and Bo Rinehart and Seth Bolt.

They say they're putting money down on their favorite golfers.

"Right now it's $20, we'll see if it heightens, it probably will. Sometimes it gets out of hand with us," said Bear Rineheart.

Even though their bets may get out of hand, NEEDTOBREATHE and the other performers at the concert are giving a big hand to the First Tee of Augusta.

They're giving 100% of the concert proceeds to the golf program, so the young golfers enrolled in the First Tee will continue to learn their strokes and other valuable lessons off the course.

"It helped me develop more personal skills and learn how to talk to different people and how to greet people in a different way," said First Tee student Danielle Reynolds. 

The chance to help students like Reynolds is why local musician Carey Murdoch says he's excited to be a part of Rock Fore! Dough.

"To give back to the community that gave to us and kind of helped us get our feet on the ground," explained Murdoch.

Event coordinators won't know for several weeks how much money was raised for the First Tee.

They believe they raised more money this year than in previous years because they didn't have to pay to set up the stage at the Amphitheater like they had to at the First Tee.
