ADAM SCOTT has arranged for three dozen 'Moreton Bay Bugs' to be flown over from Australia for the Augusta Former Champions Dinner at Augusta National this evening.

One of the cool spin-offs to Masters glory is selecting the menu for the Champions dinner the following year and the World No.2 has already whet the appetite for his fellow Green Jacketers by declaring Moreton Bay bugs are on the set menu.

"Don't be surprised if Moreton Bay bugs are on the menu somewhere," the 33-year-old Australian said during the Australian PGA at the end of 2013. "I don't know if I'd get away with serving meat pies."

But before all the Masters champions begin to think they're on the verge of some sort of Bush Tucker trial in front of Ant and Dec tonight, we can assure them they can rest easy because Moreton Bay bugs are simply flathead lobsters.

Tiger Woods put humble cheeseburgers and strawberry shortcake on his 1998 menu, while Bernhard Langer had wiener schnitzel and blackforest cake on a distinctly German menu in 1986.
