The most exclusive dinner in golf will be held Tuesday night in Augusta.
Sergio Garcia will serve as host for the Champions Dinner as Masters winners gather for their annual meal on the second floor of the clubhouse.
Ben Hogan started the tradition in 1952, and the early years featured a menu with a main course of beef, chicken or seafood. Now, with an influx of international winners, the menu has grown considerably to reflect the champion’s individual tastes.
