The newest World number 1 and Masters winner, Scottie Scheffler is having some light-hearted fun with the illustrious green jacket and already knows what's on his menu for the 2023 Masters dinner. Scheffler returns to the PGA Tour this week - his first action since winning the Masters.
He didn't compete in the RBC Heritage but is now Ryan Palmer at TPC Louisiana for the Zurich Classic of New Orleans. Perhaps needing to let off some steam and just relax after the stress of the Masters, Scheffler revealed he is having some (light-hearted) fun with the coveted green jacket he received after he won the Masters.
Favourite piece of clothing In an interview with GolfWRX, he said of his new favourite piece of clothing: "You know, it's kind of funny. I put it on the other night. "Meredith [wife] and I were just sitting around. I thought it'd be kind of a funny joke.
"We were having dessert, and I just went back in the other room and grabbed the green jacket and put it on and eat my ice cream with the jacket on. Just being us at home, having fun with it. "Honestly, probably not too much[wearing it].
It's just one of those cool things I'll keep it in the golf room. I want to represent the club well. I'm only going to wear it for certain special occasions." In the aftermath of his memorable victory, he revealed how he leaned on Meredith for support when he felt fully overwhelmed with the occasion on that Sunday at Augusta National.
Elsewhere, Scheffler has given an insight into what his menu will look like at the Masters' champions dinner next year. "I'm a meat and potatoes guy," he told the publication. "I hope everyone there enjoys their meat and potatoes. If not, they might be going hungry," he added.
