Cabrera’s dish a hit at Champions Dinner

Defending champion Angel Cabrera during a Masters practice round Tuesday at Augusta National.

AUGUSTA, Ga. – Based on early reviews, it sounds like an Angel Cabrera victory Sunday would be a huge hit with former champions.

Apparently, the man can put together a menu.

“Best piece of meat I’ve ever had,” Bob Goalby said. “It was a rib-eye and it was delicious.”

Goalby, as the 1968 Masters winner, was on hand Tuesday night for one of the tournament’s most storied traditions: The Champions Dinner.

Annually, it is hosted by the club, but it’s the defending champion who chooses the menu. Cabrera, who beat Kenny Perry and Chad Campbell in a playoff a year ago, went heavily with Argentine beef.

Four stars, according to Goalby.

As for the blood sausage, another menu entry, Goalby flashed a quizzical look. “Is that what that was?” he asked. “I saw Fuzzy (Zoeller) eating something I didn’t recognize. I didn’t have it, but I tell you, the beef was tremendous.”

For the record, Tiger Woods, a four-time winner, did attend, but reportedly he kept to himself and didn’t have much to say.
