It truly is the most wonderful time of the year for golf fans. It's Masters Tournament week where the best of the best flood to Augusta in hopes of landing a green jacket upon their shoulders.

A tradition of this tournament is the Masters Club Dinner:

A tradition started by Ben Hogan in 1952, the previous year's winner hosts the Champions Dinner in Augusta's clubhouse on the Tuesday night of tournament week and gets to choose the entire menu.

After winning The Masters back in November of 2020 Dustin Johnson was the host of this year's dinner. He got to put together the entire menu, and it looks a lot like what you would find on the tables of homes across greater Minnesota.

Meat and potatoes.

Dustin Johnson started the meal with the choice of a garden salad or a caesar salad. The main dish was a prime filet mignon with herb butter (with fish available upon request), and it was served with family-style sides of mashed potatoes and spring vegetables. The meal wrapped up with peach cobbler and apple pie for dessert, served along with vanilla ice cream.

This is the meal I grew up on. Steak, potatoes, vegetables, and some sort of homemade dessert on Sunday evenings. I had to Google and double-check that Dustin was from South Carolina and not somewhere in the Midwest.

He didn't get too creative with his dinner, but the good news is that if we want to eat like a golf pro this weekend while we watch the action, DJ is making it really easy for us. Happy Masters Week!
