Victors' Spoils

EVERYONE KNOWS the Masters has a champions' dinner, but less well-known is that the PGA has one too. At the dinner the previous year's winner gives all the past champions a gift, paid for by the PGA of America. This tradition, unique to the PGA, started only 10 years ago. Below is a list of the free booty past PGA champs have chosen to bestow on one another.
