Since 1952, the defending Masters champion has been responsible for selecting the menu at the annual Champions dinner.
This year, 2019 winner Tiger Woods stepped up to the plate and chose to serve sushi, steak and chicken fajitas, and churros to a selection of his fellow green jacket holders.
He also served a trio of desserts consisting of a classic flan, the aforementioned churros with chocolate sauce, and sopaipillas.
“Being born and raised in SoCal [Southern California], having fajitas and sushi was a part of my entire childhood, and I’m going back to what I had in 2006,” Woods said, according to PGA Tour.
“So we’ll have steak and chicken fajitas, and we’ll have sushi and sashimi out on the deck, and I hope the guys will enjoy it.”
Woods choices mirror those he made at his 2006 dinner, which he hosted after winning the 2005 Masters, his fourth victory.
After his first Masters victory in 1997, Woods famously served cheeseburgers, french fries, and milkshakes as his champions dinner before the 1998 tournament.
Due to the coronavirus – which saw the Masters moved from April to November – the dinner had to be socially distanced, while a number of invitees, including Fuzzy Zoeller and Tom Watson, were also unable to attend.
Nevertheless, 2008 winner Trevor Immelman tweeted to say it was an “amazing evening as always.”
The Masters begins on Thursday, with US Open winner Bryson DeChambeau the hot favorite.
