A Meal For A Champion

Reigning Masters champion Bubba Watson will join the illustrious company of his fellow green-jacket winners on Tuesday night, as the Floridian will host the 62nd Masters Champions Dinner. 

Jenn Bosworth and Charles Everett hopped in the kitchen with chef Tyler Anderson to make some dishes from Champions Dinners past, then try to pair the food with the champion.
