June 5, 2017 GMT

San Francisco 49ers linebacker Dekoda Watson will hold the fourth annual Koda’s Kids Foundation Golf Tournament on Friday, July 14, with a 9 a.m. shotgun start.

The tournament will be held at the Woodside Plantation Country Club, Woodside Plantation Drive, Aiken, and registration will begin at 8 a.m.

This year, the tournament will be a 3-person Captain’s Choice format, and mulligans will be sold.

The event includes door prizes for closest to the pin, longest drive, and best dressed.

Watson will be golfing in the tournament and has issued a challenge to fellow players, according to a press release.

“You may be able to beat me at golf, but when it comes to the best dressed, there’s no competition,” Watson said. “I dare you to out dress me.”

The tournament entry fee is $150 per person or $400 for a team of three and includes greens fees, a cart and lunch.

There will be vendor booths and contests at various holes during the tournament. Tournament participants will also receive NFL memorabilia signed by Watson.

Demarcus Ware and Donald Penn are also set to play in the tournament, according to the release.

All money raised during the tournament will go to Koda’s Kids Foundation which provides one scholarship for a student in each of the seven Aiken County high schools and to students in Richmond and Columbia counties, as well.

“I’m excited that the foundation has been able to host this tournament for a fourth year. Our goal with Koda’s Kids Foundation is to provide support for deserving students in the CSRA. We would like to raise enough to help support the scholarship program as well as our annual sports camp.”
