One of the most exclusive clubs in golf convenes tonight at the Masters Club.

Open only to Masters winners and Augusta National Chairman Billy Payne, the Champions Dinner began in 1952 at the suggestion of Ben Hogan. Tournament founders Bobby Jones and Clifford Roberts were made honorary members, and chairmen of the club since Roberts have been invited, too.

Phil Mickelson gets to set tonight's menu, and he has selected prime beef tenderloin for the main course. Dessert options include Spanish apple pie, vanilla ice cream and chocolate cinnamon ganache.
