Adam Scott includes Moreton Bay bugs and pavalova on the Masters Champions Dinner menu.
One of the many traditions associated with The Masters Tournament and Augusta National is the Champions dinner.
The tradition began in 1952 when defending champions Ben Hogan hosted a dinner in the Augusta National clubhouse for all the previous green jacket winners. Ever since defending Masters champions have done the same thing, often serving a dinner menu of their choice and footing the bill for it.
It was Adam Scott’s turn on Tuesday night and as the first Australian to have the honour of choosing the menu, he went for a surf ‘n turf style meal. Scott included Moreton Bay bugs, his mother’s pavalova for dessert and a selection of Penfold’s wine, including a 2005 Shiraz.
Golf Channel’s Rex Hoggard tweeted an autographed image of the dinner menu.

Sounds perfect. I’m sure some of these guys are pushing for another Aussie winner this year.
