The menu also included Caesar salad, wedge salad, macaroni and cheese (with white cheddar and smoked gouda), creamed spinach, corn creme brulee and steamed broccoli. Deserts were tiramisu, vanilla bean crème brulee, chocolate crunch and praline cheesecake.
Quote of the day
Phil Mickelson was asked about his driving game headed into the Masters. An exchange with reporter went like this:
