Though the final spread has yet to be revealed, Scott has let slip a couple of hints, and kangaroo, bugs and that bitter, dung-colored yeast paste known as Vegemite are a few of the more... exotic... Australian-inspired options he's alluded to. It all brings to mind that awkward moment a couple of years ago when Champion's Dinner guests picked up the South African-inspired menu of 2011 winner, Charl Schwartzel and spotted three rather disconcerting words: monkey gland sauce. It turns out that sauce was simply a fruit chutney infused with ginger and blended with worcestershire sauce, however the prospect of a meal that included primate excretions may have left some guests with... a bad taste in their mouths.

As for the perfect pairing, a quick call to Scott's golf idol Greg Norman should take care of that; his Eden Valley Chardonnay would certainly be sublime with... the bugs... and I'm guessing a Limestone Coast Shiraz might compliment kangaroo quite nicely. However, as I said earlier, the final menu is still a secret and there could be surprises. How about lamb burgers on the barbie and ice cold Fosters? In any case, we'll keep you posted as the menu comes together and... here at Golf Girl's Diary we may just be holding a Virtual Pavlova Contest during Masters Week. Details to follow.
