Now let’s go back in time for some of the more interesting Masters Champions Dinner menus:
Tiger Woods – 1998
Grilled chicken sandwiches.
Vanilla and strawberry milkshakes.
According to a story in the Los Angeles Times, then 96-year-old Gene Sarazen wasn’t a big fan. “I don’t care too much for that menu,” Sarazen said. “Who ever heard of a cheeseburger as a dinner?” It was the first time french fries were on the Champions Dinner menu.
More from Gene who died just over a year after the Tiger dinner:
Englishman Nick Faldo ordered fish and chips for last year’s dinner. Texan Ben Crenshaw had barbecue in 1996, Spaniard Jose Maria Olazabal had bluefish in garlic, oil and perejil–parsley–sauce in 1995, and Bernhard Langer had German wedding soup with turkey and stuffing in 1994.
Sarazen’s personal favorite remains the 1993 dinner, presented by Fred Couples. The meal featured chicken cacciatore with spaghetti on the side.
Danny Willett – 2017
Jordan Spieth – 2016
