The Masters Champions Dinner….Really, Bubba?

One of the best parts about The Masters and Augusta National is all the traditions.  They are everywhere.  It gives the tournament as well as the club a certain mystique that is unparalleled.  One of the traditions is the Champions Dinner that is held on Tuesday night of Masters week.  Masters champions only.  Green jacket required.

The previous years’ winner gets to pick the menu.  Anything he wants.  Bubba Watson, who is one of the more colorful personalities on tour (and one of the least liked) had a chance to make everyone happy with an awesome menu…but what did he do?


Really?  Grilled chicken, green beans, corn, mashed potatoes, and mac and cheese?  Sounds like you tossed a Hungry Man frozen dinner in the microwave.  Come on, Bubba??!!  You are one of the least basic guys on tour – why serve such a basic menu?

Now, not to cast stones, but when I win the Masters, this is what I’ll serve:


Arugula Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette Dressing
Pickled Vegetables
King’s Hawaiian Rolls (a nod to my dad)


Mrs. RCS’s Chicken Piccata (a nod to the wife)
Fettuccine Alfredo
Lemon Roasted Asparagus



What do you think?  What would you serve?

    All I can think is that I am glad Fuzzy Zeller hasn’t been tasked with creating a menu. Don’t want him to get in trouble again.

    About what I would picture from a guy from Bagdad, FL. I completely agree with the Funfetti cake. That is the fire there.

    He did that as an honor to his late mother – all his favorite things she would serve when he was growing up.
