Cabrera's Champions Dinner

What's on the menu at this year's Champions Dinner?

As you probably already know, the reigning Masters Champion hosts a dinner for all past winners on the eve of the tournament. The champ gets to design the menu himself and most of those lucky enough to get the chance to do this opt for a feast that reflects their national or local identity. Today, details have arrived in the media centre of Angel Cabrera's choice. Here's what Tiger and co. can look forward to on Wednesday night:


Grouper Ceviche over Plantain Chips


Empanadas de Carne y Pollo (beef and chicken turnovers)


Grilled Argentina Style Rib Eye Steak


Mashed Potatoes

Roast Cipollini Onions

Grilled Asparagus


Panaqueque de Dulce De Leche (Caramel Crepes with Vanilla Ice Cream)

We have also just received a forecast for the week. Apart from showers late on Thursday afternoon (there is a chance of lightening then too), the forecast is superb. Sunny and warm with light winds.

In his current role, Neil is responsible for testing drivers and golf balls. Having been a part of the Golf Monthly team for over 15 years and playing off a handicap of 3, he has the experience to compare performance between models, brands and generations. For 2022 he thinks the main trend in drivers is: "In a word, consistency. Whilst all the brands are talking about ball speed (and the new drivers are certainly long), my biggest finding has been how much more consistent the ball flights are. Mishits don't seem to be causing the same level of drop-off or increase in the spin numbers. This means that more shots seem to be flying the way you want them to!" As far as golf balls are concerned the biggest development is in the, "three piece, non-Tour, urethane-covered section. For regular golfers, these models offer superb performance at both ends of the bag without denting your wallet quite as much as the premium Tour-played options."

Originally working with the best coaches in the UK to produce instruction content, he is now the brand's Digital Editor and covers everything from Tour player interviews to gear reviews. In his time at Golf Monthly, he has covered equipment launches that date back well over a decade. He clearly remembers the launch of the Callaway and Nike square drivers as well as the white TaylorMade driver families, such as the RocketBallz! If you take a look at the Golf Monthly YouTube channel, you'll see his equipment videos dating back over a decade! He has also conducted 'What's In The Bag' interviews with many of the game's best players like Rory McIlroy, Dustin Johnson and Jon Rahm. Over the years, Neil has tested a vast array of products in each category and at drastically different price-points.
