Whether he's spitting a verse on the latest Golf Boys track or riding a hovercraft golf cart, Bubba Watson is constantly entertaining the masses and defying golf stereotypes.

At Tuesday's Masters Club Dinner, Watson did it again, as he served up a simple dinner as defending tournament champion. It was one that included perhaps the two simplest dishes of all time, grilled chicken breast and mashed potatoes. 

Here's a look at one of the menus, which Watson apparently had autographed by a plethora of past Masters champions who attended.

The plain, informal meal was a fitting selection from a guy like Watson, who has developed a reputation as being one of the more deserving and humble players on tour.

The 34-year-old kicked things off with a popular appetizer, a traditional Caesar salad, followed by a healthy grilled chicken breast which was served with mashed potatoes, corn, macaroni and cheese and, of course, cornbread.

For dessert? 

You guessed it, confetti cake served with vanilla ice cream.

Although Watson's menu was hardly as extravagant as past winners', you would be hard-pressed to find a Masters champion, or anyone for that matter, picky enough to shy away from Bubba's spread.

Watson's spotlight-stealing post-dinner tweet is just as fitting as the menu itself. A year later, the Florida native is just as in awe of his 2012 Masters win as he was moments after it happened. This emotional moment at Tuesday's Masters press conference sums up the real, down-to-earth personality Bubba displays both on and off the golf course. 

Watson will look to become the first player since Tiger Woods in 2002 to win back-to-back championships at Augusta National. He has two top-10 finishes on the PGA Tour this season and is currently ranked No. 14 in the world.

Prior to 2012, Watson hadn't finished better than 20th at the Masters.
