What did Jon Ram serve up at his 2024 Masters Championship Dinner?

Jon Rahm has a little less than a year to figure out his menu for next year’s Champions Dinner ahead of the 88th Masters, but it’s never too early to start working on the menu. Good thing that Golfweek asked him in Hawaii in January for this year’s

Here’s how Rahm answered our question:

“I have an idea, yes,” he said. “It would be Spanish cuisine. I’m lucky to be friends with chef Jose Andres (owner of restaurants in several cities around the United States and winner of a number of awards for his cooking) and I would seek out his help a little bit.”

As it turned out, Andres participated in the 2023 Masters Par 3 Contest, caddying for Sergio Garcia. Andres also got a chance to take aim at the ninth green during the event. Spanish cuisine has been a popular pick for past Spanish winners of the Masters. In 2018, Garcia served up a menu full of Spanish-inspired dishes, including a dish called Arroz Caldoso de Bogavante, which is described as a traditional Spanish lobster rice dish. In 1995, Jose Maria Olazabal went with paella and hake, plus tapas.

This year, Scottie Scheffler’s menu had a Texas flavor to it and was a big hit with his Scottie Style sliders, although his tortilla soup was declared way too spicy. So, Rahm is now on the clock. Here’s hoping it’s paella for everyone.

What clubs did Taylor Moore use to win Valspar Championship?

All final round Taylor Moore seemed like one of those Sunday sidebars. Nice final round, get a taste of contention and secure a solid check. Instead, Moore came up clutch while others did not, and he came away with a career-defining victory at the 2023 Valspar Championship.

Moore was so out of the picture that he wasn’t asked for any interviews by the tour during the week save for what would turn out to be his winner’s press conference.

 Still, during the final round he was hanging on the periphery while Jordan Spieth, Tommy Fleetwood and Adam Schenk took turns occupying or sharing the lead, Moore rolled in an 18-footer for birdie at the eighth then struck a 9-iron from 167 yards to two feet, leading to another birdie to get within one. An 8-iron off the tee at the par-3 15th led to another birdie to stay within one before a 26-footer dropped at 16 to knot Schenk.

Moore can thank his tee-to-green game for the win. Moore ranked third in strokes gained/off the tee, picking up 3.465 shots on the field. His driver is Ping’s G430 LST model—the low-spin version of the G430 family. Moore’s driver has a 45-inch Mitsubishi Tensei 1K Blue 60TX shaft, tipped a half-inch with a D3 swingweight. Into the greens Moore was just as effective, ranking fourth in SG/approach, besting the field by 5.383 shots while also ranking second in greens in regulation. Moore’s irons are Ping’s S55 along with a Ping i230 4-iron. All of Moore’s irons have True Temper’s Dynamic Gold Tour Issue X100 shafts.
