Tiger's Masters menu: fajitas and sushi

Tiger Woods revealed his menu selection for the traditional Champions Dinner at the Masters Tournament, and he's chosen some of his childhood staples.

"Being born and raised in SoCal, having fajitas and sushi was a part of my entire childhood," he said Tuesday at a Masters media conference. He picked a similar menu the year after he won his fourth Masters in 2005. His 2019 title was his fifth.

"I'm going back to what I had in 2006. So we'll have steak and chicken fajitas, and we'll have sushi and sashimi out on the deck, and I hope the guys will enjoy it."

He won his first Masters in 1997 at age 21, and the following year, the menu reflected the tastes of someone his age: cheeseburgers, chicken burgers, french fries and milkshakes. The shakes could make a comeback this year, too.

"I'm debating whether or not to have milkshakes as desserts because that was one of the most -- one of the most great memories to see Gene Sarazen and Sam Snead having milkshakes that night in '98," he said.

Woods' menu is a departure from what 2018 champion Patrick Reed chose to serve in 2019: bone-in ribeye steaks, macaroni and cheese, creamed spinach and corn creme brulee.

The Masters will be played April 9-12 at Augusta National Golf Club.
