Defending Masters champion Adam Scott brought the taste of his native Australia to the annual Champions Dinner at Augusta National Golf Club on Tuesday night. 

According to The Associated Press via, the 33-year-old served "surf and turf" to his fellow green jacket winners.

Golf Channel was able to get its hands on one of the menus:

The meal began with a complex salad that included grilled calamari. But we can only imagine the guests' response when they saw that the New York strip came served with "bugs." However, the bugs the menu is referring to are a type of lobster, per ESPN sports business reporter Darren Rovell:

Golf Channel's Rex Hoggard was among the many who praised Scott for his bold decision:

In addition to the appetizer and entree, it's likely that Scott's dessert was a big hit, too. Keeping the Australian theme alive throughout, Scott served a vanilla sundae with Anzac biscuits, a popular treat Down Under:

You can't go wrong with sweet cookies and ice cream. And you certainly won't make any enemies by serving steak and seafood. 

As TEN News Australia's Lachlan Kennedy points out, Scott may want to think about getting into the restaurant business when his golf career winds down:

On Thursday, Scott will begin his quest for a repeat title at the Masters. The surf and turf lover is the odds-on favorite to win with four-time winner Tiger Woods sitting out following back surgery

Ahead of this week's tournament, Scott talked about his pursuit of the world No. 1 ranking, per The Guardian's Ewan Murray:

I've had a couple of goes at that the last couple times I've played and it hasn't worked out. If I can keep chipping away at it, whether I win or not this week and get to No. 1, my goal is just to keep playing well. It's not that I don't tee up thinking I'm going to try to be world No. 1. It just works out. You've just got to keep playing well.

Scott, who will be grouped with Jason Dufner and Matthew Fitzpatrick on Day 1, will tee off shortly after 10:40 a.m. ET on Thursday. And with weather conditions expected to be ideal throughout the weekend, Scott figures to be a major factor through all 72 holes.

If he can clean up some of his putting issues and start fast like he did at the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill a few weeks ago, he'll have an excellent shot at becoming the first back-to-back winner since Woods in 2002.
