Why Bubba Watson won't be serving Waffle House food at this year's Masters champions dinner

Bubba Watson made his love of the Waffle House known when he went there for a victory meal after claiming his second Masters. But will he serve any food from the breakfast chain when he hosts his second champions dinner?

"You can't use a name brand," Watson said during a teleconference on Monday.

Apparently, Augusta National's long list of strict rules extend to Masters winners and food. No wonder Adam Scott didn't serve an Outback Bloomin' Onion last year.

Watson's answer makes it seem like he at least posed the question. Of course, it wouldn't be the first time a Masters champ hosted a dinner of casual food. In 1998, Tiger Woods chose cheeseburgers, fries and milkshakes.

Watson seems reluctant to give away any details regarding the meal. He kept it a secret in 2013 -- Nick Faldo first tweeted the menu of grilled chicken, mashed potatoes, green beans and macaroni and cheese and cornbread after -- and he plans to do the same this time around.

"It's the one chance that I can just hold everything from everybody, so I'm doing it," Watson said. "And I might never get that chance again."
