Lefty Goes Southern for Champions Dinner

AUGUSTA, Ga. -- Phil Mickelson will be presiding over a Southern feast at the Masters champions dinner this year.
The defending champion gets to select the menu for the annual Tuesday night dinner of past champions, and Lefty is making sure they won't leave the room on an empty stomach.
The menu features southern fried chicken, baby back ribs, beef brisket and smoked sausage. If that's not enough, vanilla ice cream will be served for dessert.
Mickelson won his second Masters last year by two shots over Tim Clark. After winning the 2004 Masters for his first major, Mickelson served lobster ravioli in a tomato cream sauce, Caesar's salad and garlic bread at the champions dinner.
Along with choosing the menu, the defending champion also picks up the tab.
This year's Masters begins on Thursday.
