Defending Masters champion Tiger Woods has hosted the annual Champions Dinner 'quarantine style' - from his Florida home.

And he even wore his green jacket!

QUIZ | Can you name the last 20 Masters champions?

According to the Daily Mail website, the Masters Champions Dinner is part of Augusta folklore and sums up the tradition and history that sets the major apart from any other.

Every year on the Tuesday night before the Masters, golf's elite come together to celebrate the first major of the season.

The defending champion selects the menu and serves as host for the dinner.

After his 15th major win at Augusta last April, Woods revealed that he planned to serve sushi, fajitas and milkshakes at this year's dinner. 

'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.' 

Woods should still get the chance to serve his Champions Dinner after the 2020 Masters, originally due to take place this week, was postponed until 12-15 November, 2020 due to the coronavirus crisis.

Woods posted a photo on Twitter of him sitting alongside girlfriend Erica Herman, daughter Sam and son Charlie with the Masters trophy on the table.

Woods, 44, is a five-time winner of the Masters having emerged victorious in 1997, 2001, 2002, 2005 and 2019.
