It was the 15-time major winner’s turn – thanks to his epic 2019 triumph for a fifth green jacket – to select the special extras for Tuesday’s annual gathering, delayed from April like the tournament by the Covid-19 pandemic.

“Awfully special for me,” Woods said.

At least one member of the select club of 33 living winners of the Masters was not on hand, with Spain’s Sergio Garcia, the 2017 champion, having withdrawn from the tournament on Monday after contracting coronavirus.

Woods, the man who offered up milkshakes and cheeseburgers after his record-setting 1997 Masters victory at age 21, this year served spicy tuna and tempura shrimp, steak and chicken fajitas, wine and desserts of flan, churros and sopapillas.

“To see Sam Snead and Gene Sarazen drinking milkshakes, that was awesome,” Woods recalled.

“Just to hear the stories of all the guys over the years… they’re awesome stories.”

Woods will try to add to his own legendary tales by winning his 83rd PGA Tour title this week to break the career record he shares with Snead and taking a sixth Masters victory to match the record set by Jack Nicklaus.
