Spieth to serve Texas BBQ at Masters dinner


It looks like Jordan Spieth will serve a little slice of home next spring at Augusta National.

As defending champion at the Masters, Spieth has the privilege of choosing the menu for the annual champions' dinner, which takes place Tuesday of tournament week. According to a Golf News Net report, the 22-year-old plans to offer one of the mainstay meals of his native Texas.

"I've still got a bit of time before I have to advise the officials at Augusta National, but I am leaning toward a Texas-like barbecue," Spieth said this week at the Hero World Challenge. "So it will be a choice of Texan meats as my main meal choice."

The champions' dinner menu can range from unique (Scotland's Sandy Lyle serving haggis in 1989) to traditional (Bernhard Langer's Thanksgiving feast in 1994, or Tiger Woods' cheeseburger-and-fries combo in 1998). Adam Scott served several Australian staples when he hosted the dinner two years ago, while last year Bubba Watson repeated his menu from 2013: Caesar salad, grilled chicken, mashed potatoes, corn, macaroni and cheese with cornbread.
