Besides the green jacket, the adulation and the acclaim, one of the greatest honors for a Masters winner is putting on a spread for his fellow champions at the next year's tournament.

(CNN)Besides the green jacket, the adulation and the acclaim, one of the greatest honors for a Masters winner is putting on a spread for his fellow champions at the next year's tournament.

Although he's had a shorter time to prepare than most -- the 2020 Masters was held in November rather than its typical slot in April -- defending champion Dustin Johnson has revealed his chosen menu for the 2021 Champions Dinner.

And although he said before his maiden win at Augusta that his favorite tradition at the storied club was the sandwiches, the 36-year-old golfer opted for some more classy options.

The 1992 Masters winner Fred Couples, who traditionally plays a practice round with Woods ahead of the major, said he was "thinking of" Woods ahead of this year's competition.

The Champions Dinner is the exclusive pre-tournament gathering of past winners and the Augusta National chairman on the Tuesday of Masters week.

The food is usually revealed just days before the tournament's start as the world's best golfers gather at Augusta, with this year's Masters' starting on April 8.

The Champions Dinner is held in the Augusta National Clubhouse and has become part of Masters lore since it was started by the great Ben Hogan in 1952.

When Woods returned as defending champion in 1998 following his breakthrough major win at Augusta, he served cheeseburgers, fries and milkshakes.
