It was TACO (and Sushi) TUESDAYYYYYY at The Masters this week … Tiger Woods finally got to host his champions dinner at Augusta — and he picked Mexican food and rolls for the occasion!
If you’re unfamiliar … every year at golf’s most prestigious tournament, the past year’s winner gets to host previous champs for a feast before tee times begin.
Normally, it all goes down in April — and it’s LAVISH — but because of COVID, Tiger had to wait 7 months to do the honors.
Don’t worry, Tiger still was able to get in an April celebration … remember his backyard Masters dinner with his kids and GF???
But, when the time finally came for Woods to do the real thing on Tuesday before the major tourney begins in Georgia … he sure as hell delivered.
Tiger picked an exotic menu … there was an Augusta Roll (featuring tempura shrimp and spicy tuna), and prime steak and chicken fajitas.
For dessert, Tiger offered up flan, churros and sopapillas. He even had everyone wash it down with some fancy red wine!!
Seemed like it was all a hit … Jack Nicklaus tweeted of the evening, “Mr. Woods has gotten a lot of practice at picking a menu. 💯”
The Masters officials say the dinner was pared down this season to help prevent the spread of COVID … explaining only 33 people were allowed to attend.
Woods, meanwhile, is set to tee off Thursday morning to defend his 2019 championship … here’s to hoping all the carbs and protein from the dinner help!
