Two-time Masters champion Bubba Watson admits he is really looking forward to this year’s Masters Champions Dinner at Augusta National.

In what is arguably the most anticipated champions tradition there has ever been at the Masters, it is widely anticipated that there could be tension at the dining table as LIV players who have previously won the Green Jacket tuck into Scottie Scheffler’s sliders!

Bubba will be joined by Sergio Garcia, Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson and Patrick Reed in the Augusta National clubhouse but he revealed he still has a good relationship with a host of PGA Tour stars.


“I think it’s going to be great. I still talk to guys on the PGA TOUR. I still talk to people that work on staff at the PGA TOUR. It’s been amazing communicating with them.

“I still reach out on their birthdays, reach out at Christmas. We still talk. I still watch and pull for my guys. So I can’t wait to get there because when you’re wearing the green jacket at the dinner, everything goes out the window. You know how blessed you are to be in that room and how thankful you are to be in that room. I’ve already talked to guys, and we can’t wait to hang out because I haven’t seen Ted Scott in a while.

“I’ll give you a secret, normally I eat before, eat a couple burritos before I go to the dinner because I don’t know what they’re going to have. But when I saw his menu, definitely want the dessert and I definitely want a couple sliders. So yeah, I can’t wait. It’ll be fun.”
