“What’s your favourite Masters tradition?”
It’s a question that’s been asked many times throughout the years, but one that probably hasn’t been answered quite the way Dustin Johnson did on Wednesday.
Did DJ go with the green jacket ceremony? Maybe the honorary starters? Or how about the Wednesday Par 3 Contest? Nope, none of the above.
Instead, Johnson’s favourite thing about the Masters is… food? That’s right, food.
“Favourite tradition…” Johnson said before taking a long pause. “For me, I don’t know if it’s really a tradition, but my favourite thing about the Masters is the sandwiches.”
When asked to elaborate which one, Johnson replied, “All of them.” Boom. Nailed it. Check out the amusing clip:

Hey, he’s not wrong. The sandwiches at Augusta National are legendary – especially the pimento cheese, although I prefer the chicken. But it’s still a funny answer when asked about TRADITION at a tournament known as a TRADITION unlike any other.
Speaking of TRADITIONS, Johnson, one of the favourites to win this week, would love to get in on another one that comes with slipping on the green jacket: the Champions Dinner. As if he needed more motivation to win a Major, he could serve all the Masters sandwiches he wants.
