Prepared by Executive Chef Warrick Hilli, Kingston Heath Golf Club
Before the 2009 Australian Masters, we never had a club sandwich on our menu, and to be honest, I hadn’t made too many before myself. After the first round on Thursday, Tiger's agent asked him what he wanted to eat. "A club sandwich!” he said. Tiger told us what he wanted on it, including "NO mayo, please!"
Never have you seen so many chefs fighting in the kitchen to see who would make Tiger's Club Sandwich! This continued each day during the Masters, as we would take a phone order for his club sandwich at the end of each round. When things got back to normal after the tournament, we decided to put the club sandwich on the menu, and we called it the “Tiger Club”! After a while, we changed a few of the ingredients to give it some Aussie flair and we added mayo to it! ~ Warwick Hilli
