Tiger Woods wasn’t going to let the postponement of The Masters prevent him from hosting his own version of the traditional Champions Dinner. Sporting his green jacket, Woods took to social media on Tuesday to let the world know of his dinner plans at his South Florida home amid the coronavirus pandemic.

“Masters Champions Dinner quarantine style. Nothing better than being with family,” Woods captioned a photo on both Twitter and Instagram. Woods is accompanied by girlfriend Erica Herman, children Sam and Charlie as well as a replica of the Masters trophy, a likeness of the Augusta National clubhouse.

The Champions Dinner is a tradition that began at Augusta National in 1952 at the suggestion of Ben Hogan.

While it was uncertain what was on the menu at Woods’ home, the 44-year-old could have an opportunity to host the Champions Dinner on Nov. 10 in Augusta, Ga., ahead of the rescheduled Masters.

Woods, who is the tournament’s defending champion, shared what is expected to be on the menu back in February.

“Being born and raised in SoCal, having fajitas and sushi was a part of my entire childhood, and I’m going back to what I had in 2006,” Woods said. “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.”

The Masters was pushed back to Nov. 12-15, which will be in stark contrast to its traditional position, ending on the second Sunday in April.
