McIlroy serves Irish beef at PGA Champions dinner
Rory McIlroy, winner of the 2012 PGA Championship at Kiawah, got to choose the menu for the PGA Champions dinner Tuesday night, and he served a taste of his home country to guests like Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Lee Trevino, Jack Nicklaus and Keegan Bradley, according to the Irish Independent newspaper.
The 24-year-old Ulsterman tomorrow opens his defense of the US PGA title he won at Kiawah last year. McIlroy is a big winner with the Irish food industry with his choice for this prestigious occasion, which brought together the surviving winners of the PGA, one of golf's four 'Major' championships.
After a starter of goats cheese and beetroot salad, McIlroy's main course was a 'Duet of Irish Beef Tenderloin.' Irish fried champ was on the side.

Let's hope that this was just a practice run for his inevitable Masters Champions dinner someday. Hint for McIlroy: You can never go wrong with Thai food.
