According to a golfbytourmiss.com report on Wednesday, the former Longhorn and current Masters champion Jordan Spieth will select “Texas barbecue” as the meal for the traditional Masters winners dinner on the eve of the annual tournament.
“I’ve still got a bit of time before I have to advise the officials at Augusta National but I am leaning towards a Texas-like barbecue,” Spieth said in the report. “So it will be a choice of Texan meats as my main meal choice.”
According to tradition, each year before the annual tournament in Augusta, Ga., the previous year’s winner chooses a meal for the rest of the golfers competing in the tournament. Previous champs have selected dinner offerings from their environs. Former champion Sandy Lyle infamously offered up haggis (a Scottish dish made with either sheep heart, liver or lungs) as his meal of choice in 1989. Georgia native Bubba Watson went traditional southern with grilled chicken, macaroni and cheese, mashed potatoes, corn and cornbread.
In his first dinner as winner of the tournament, Tiger Woods fed golfers clubhouse casual with his cheeseburgers and french fries offering in 1998.
