Masters champion Cabrera thinking about champions dinner


Bookmark and Share
CHARLOTTE, N.C. ' According to a story in Sports Illustrated on the Masters, Angel Cabrera has such an appetite that at the champions dinner Sunday night after his victory, the Argentine found the Tiger Woods Cheeseburger so much to his liking that he ate nine of them, washed down by red wine (the burgers were said to be small).
Cabrera said this wasnt the case.
No, its not true, he said through an interpreter, swing coach Charlie Epps. I dont like hamburgers, anyway. Its not true.
So what will be on the menu for the Champions Dinner next year on the Tuesday of the Masters?
True to his root, the past champions can expect beef.
Like a good Argentine, were going to have a great asado, which is a great barbecue with a lot of different meats, Cabrera said. And a little wine.

PREMATURE ENDING: Chad Campbell had a tough time going over some of the shots he missed on the back nine of the Masters, where he lost in a playoff, but it didnt keep him from watching the tournament on tape.
But not the entire final round.
I didnt see the playoff hole, Campbell said with a smile.
Thats probably a good thing, for he was in the middle of the 18th fairway with a 7-iron, blocked it into the bunker, blasted out to 5 feet and missed the cut to get eliminated.
Its not like Campbell turned off the TV or turned his head. He used a digital video recorder, and well
You know how it works with playoffs and stuff, he said. Sometimes, it doesnt continue to record. And for some reason, it didnt record it (the playoff). I really dont know what happened, to be honest. My wife just told me that it didnt get the whole thing.
Campbell said if he gets a copy of the playoff, hell be sure to watch it ' even if he doesnt like the outcome.

QUICK FIX: The pro-am brought one moment rarely seen with Tiger Woods ' the worlds No. 1 player strolling down the fairway while talking on his cell phone.
Who was he calling?
The answer was evident when Rick Nichols of Nike hustled inside the ropes to Woods, then took his putter and 3-wood and began jogging off toward the equipment trailer.
The 3-wood needed a new grip. That was simple enough.
And the putter that Woods has used to win 13 of his majors? Turns out the loft had changed ever so slight, which Nichols said happens on occasion. He adjusted it by three-quarters of a degree.
The putter was returned one hole later, and Woods made a 20-foot eagle putt.
Good job, Rick, Woods called out to him. You did the company proud.
Of course, the putter is the one club that is not made by Nike. Woods has been using a Scotty Cameron putter that Mark OMeara gave him at the 1998 British Open.
