Big Boi will headline PGA Tour Championship kickoff event


Big Boi will headline this year’s Tee Up ATL kickoff for the PGA Tour Championship.

The Atlanta rapper – fresh from a rollicking performance at One Musicfest – will perform at the Sept. 17 event at the College Football Hall of Fame.

The gathering celebrates the PGA Tour’s 30 top golfers, several of whom will be in attendance. Joining Big Boi will be emcee Ryan Cameron, DJ Infamous and DJ Debonair, as well as a live mural painting by Greg Mike.

Tickets, including a drink, are $15 and can be purchased at www.teeupatl.com. All proceeds from ticket sales and the mural auction will benefit the East Lake Foundation and Purpose Built Communities. 

Last year, Ludacris performed at the event, while several Atlanta Hawks and Atlanta Falcons players also attended.
