Adam Scott played it safe with his selections for the Champions Dinner on Tuesday night at Augusta National.
"I kind of picked nothing too exotic, because I didn't think any of the other guys would appreciate it, kangaroo and crocodile, or anything like that," Scott said. "It's along those lines of surf and turf, and it will be off the barbie, which is what I like. I would love to have served some meat pies at the cocktail hour, but it couldn't be arranged."
Moreton Bay bugs were the most exotic item on the menu. The name is a bit misleading, though. They are not insects, but instead a flat-headed lobster named for the body of water where they are found.
"I picked the bugs because I like them," Scott said. "They are one of my favorite foods back home. I thought it would be nice to have something really local to serve. Hopefully the other guys can get past the name and enjoy a nice bit of our seafood from home. But I think they are going to be pretty happy with what I serve up tonight, and particularly the wine."
Scott has a plan if he's fortunate to host another Champions Dinner.
"Next time, if I get another chance to do it, I'd love to serve some meat pies," he said.
