Adam Scott teased an all-Aussie Masters Champions Dinner menu

Reigning Masters champion still has some time to decide what he'll serve at the pre-tournament Champions Dinner next April.

The first Australian to win a green jacket, Scott teased Tuesday that Oz cooking will be well-represented at Augusta National.

“There’s definitely going to be a big Australian flavor on the menu," said the 33-year-old Scott to Scott Michaux of the Augusta Chronicle ahead of this week's Australian PGA Championship. "I think Moreton Bay Bugs are definitely going to get a run, they’re my favorite."

It might cost Scott a pretty penny to import the slipper lobster from his native Queensland. The champion not only gets to set the menu for the Champions Dinner, but also foots the bill for the meal. Scott wants to make sure the legends at the table enjoy the experience.

“I’m trying to make sure I serve something that everyone will eat," Scott said before joking, “I don’t know that I can get away with serving meat pies unfortunately.

“But I will definitely get something from Queensland and the rest will be Australian as well.”
