Just like the rest of us, Dustin Johnson excitedly looks at the Masters Champions Dinner menu when it drops. The key difference is that Johnson actually gets to attend the dinner as a former winner of the green jacket, while we peons fight in the Instagram comments over what our menus would look like in the event one of us ever won the green jacket, which will never happen.

As for DJ and the rest of the former champions, they get to indulge, and indulge they will in Jon Rahm’s Spanish feast that, in our humble opinion, has already vaulted him into the Masters Champions Dinner menu Hall of Fame before a single bite has even been taken. Picky eaters need not apply:

Not much to hate on there. Johnson, who went a more conservative, American route in 2021 (shout-out pigs in a blanket, a.k.a. Irish caviar, a.k.a. the GOAT appetiser), has nothing but love for Rahm’s choices, even if he barely understands what any of them are.

“I have seen the menu, I’m sure it’s going to be fantastic,” Johnson said on a conference call ahead of LIV Miami. “I don’t know what a lot of it is. I did know the [Ibericos] ham, obviously from playing in Spain last year. I ate a lot of the ham, so I know that’s going to be great.

“I love Spanish food, I’m just not that familiar with it. But I can imagine it’s going to be great.”

Peak DJ right there. It’s going to be a great meal, I just have no clue what any of it is.

In fairness, he’s certainly not alone. We had to do a bit of Googling ourselves to figure out what Rodaball al Pil-Pil was (a fish dish), as well as Idiazabal (a cheese made from unpasteurised sheep milk). All of it sounds good and I’ve never even heard of it or had it. Same boat as DJ.
