Masters Champions Dinner

Michael Sordyl joined The Ashley Group in a financial advising position in 2006. When he is not providing financial services, Michael Sordyl enjoys staying active by playing golf.

The Masters, a major golf tournament held annually at Augusta National Golf Club in Georgia, is considered the most prestigious tournament in the sport, particularly for North American golfers. Established in 1934, the tournament is rich in history and tradition.

One of the event’s more recent and most unique rituals involves the previous year’s winner selecting the dinner menu for the Masters Champions Dinner. The dinner takes place the Tuesday night before the tournament begins. Only past winners are permitted to attend, with the previous year’s winner serving as the guest of honor.

Not only does the reigning champion select the dinner menu, he is also responsible for footing the bill. Popular selections from past dinners range from German golfer Bernhard Langer’s Wiener schnitzel in 1986 to 22-year-old Tiger Wood’s cheeseburgers, french fries, and milkshakes in 1998.
