AUGUSTA, Ga. — Welcome to our first Masters primer of Masters week. We’ll be sharing some facts and stories about this 87th Masters tournament with you throughout this week.

THE CHAMPIONS DINNER

It’s the exclusive club within one of the world’s most exclusive clubs: the Masters Club, commonly known as the Champions dinner.

The dinner is held every Tuesday night of Masters week upstairs in the main clubhouse adjacent to the Champions’ locker room in a small dining room known as The Library. The dinner was the idea of two-time Masters champion Ben Hogan and began in 1952 as Hogan returned to Augusta National Golf Club to defend his first title.

The guest list is as pared down as it gets. Only Masters winners, plus the club chairman, currently Fred Ridley, are invited. No wives, girlfriends, children, caddies, agents or even other Augusta National Golf Club members are allowed.

The menu is set by the defending champion, in this case world No. 1 Scottie Scheffler. Here’s what he plans to serve (guests can also order from the regular menu):

• Cheeseburger sliders “Scottie style” (whatever that means)

• Firecracker shrimp with sweet Thai chili and Sriracha mayonnaise

• Tortilla soup with avocado, blue tortilla strips, sour cream, cilantro and lime

• Texas ribeye steak or blackened redfish with family style macaroni and cheese, jalapeno creamed corn, fried brussels sprouts and seasoned fries

• Warm chocolate chip skillet cookie with milk and cookies ice cream
