- The 2022 Masters Champions Dinner will be held on Tuesday night.
- The Japanese menu was crafted by 2021 champion Hideki Matsuyama.
- The main course includes miso-glazed black cod and Wagyu ribeye.
The Masters have unveiled the mouthwatering Japanese-themed menu for this year’s Champions Dinner. The dishes, picked by Hideki Matsuyama himself, are “to honor” the first-ever Japanese professional golfer to win a men’s major golf championship, who took home the legendary Green Jacket from the Masters last year. The 2022 Champions Dinner will be held at Augusta National Golf Club in Georgia on Tuesday, April 5.
The dinner will open with sushi, sashimi and nigiri, and yakitori chicken skewers for appetizers. Then, for the main course, options include miso-glazed black cod and Wagyu ribeye with mixed mushrooms and vegetables. Finally, for dessert, a Japanese strawberry shortcake.

At this time, the 30-year-old Matsuyama currently boasts +4200 odds to repeat as Masters champion, which doesn’t even put him in the Top 15 favorites. This year, John Rahm is favored to win the Masters with +1300, followed by Justin Thomas at +1400, Cameron Smith at +1400, and Dustin Johnson rounding out the Top 5 at +1600.
All that said, however, this year’s contenders likely aren’t even the focus of golf fans right now as all eyes are currently fixated on the legendary Tiger Woods, who played a practice round at Augusta on Monday as he attempts to participate in the tournament, which would be his first Major following his devastating car accident back in February 2021.
As for the actual Masters, the tournament will begin on Thursday, with ESPN broadcasting the first two days of the action on Thursday and Friday. Then, on Saturday and Sunday, the broadcast will swing over to CBS where it’ll be called by the soothing sound of Jim Nantz.
