Sandy Lyle Not A Cock-A-Doodle Do With Bubba’s Masters Menu.

Former Masters champion Sandy Lyle was hardly a cockle-doodle-do with Bubba Watson’s repeat menu choice at Tuesday, night’s former Champions  Dinner.

Watson showed no imagination in choosing chicken and macaroni cheese just as he had served up two years after winning his maiden Masters.

“It was a repeat of the menu he presented in 2013, chicken and macaroni cheese,” said Lyle and winner of the 1988 Masters.

“I didn’t mind it at all but I won’t say I’m used to eating in Kentucky Fried Chicken but it was very good.

“Unfortunately Woosie wasn’t there, he might have had a tummy ache.”

But while the golf world is admiring a new ‘reach out and engage’ approach from fellow Masters champion Tiger Woods is exhibiting to fans, the media and others Lyle took the chance to ask Tiger if he’d sign a handful of Augusta flags the Scot carried into Tuesday night’s Champions Dinner.

And Woods happily agreed.

“I had about 10 flags tied together to get signed by Tiger but he was fine, he signed them all,” said Lyle.

“He also said to me ‘I hear you played on Saturday with hickory clubs’ and I said ‘how did you know?’ He asked me where I got them, so I told him the story.

“He didn’t know that name but he sounded quite interested. At the end of the evening he came over and said ‘what was that name again?’ He wants to look at my hickory clubs and maybe try something different. I am the world hickory champion and I’m sticking to it.”

Lyle will tee off at 11.36am local time (4.36pm UK) in the company of fellow Scot and reigning British Amateur champion Bradley Neil and Korean Seung-Yul Noh.
