Of all the great "traditions unlike any other" at the Masters, one of the very best is the former winners' dinner. The exclusive meal was started in 1952 by Ben Hogan, and there's only one way in: by winning the Masters.

While it's a very secretive affair, fans to get to see what's on the menu each year, a menu selected by the defending champion.

Earlier on Tuesday Garcia unveiled what's he'll be serving:

Starting with a salad, Garcia added a nice touch in including an ingredient from all 10 countries from which former Masters winners have hailed. For those keeping score, that meant the salad had an ingredient from Spain, USA, South Africa, England, Germany, Scotland, Wales, Canada, Argentina and Fiji.

The main meal was a dish called Arroz Caldoso de Bogavante, which is described as a traditional Spanish lobster rice dish.

For dessert, the former champions were treated to Angela Garcia's Tres Leches Cake, named after Garcia's wife, Angela.

Those in attendance washed down their meal with a pair of Spanish wines: 2016 Sketch, Albarino, Rias Baixas and 2014 Pinea, Tempranillo, Ribera Del Duero.
