Tiger Woods was forced to put his original Champions Dinner plans on hold when the Masters was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

But the reigning green jacket winner assured folks the annual tradition would continue in November, even though it may look and feel a bit different due to current restrictions in place to limit the spread of the coronavirus.

"I think that the plan is still to do it," Woods said at the Zozo Championship. "We're not going to have it upstairs, I think we're going to have it downstairs where there's more room so we can all be socially distant."

The five-time Masters winner is also expecting to serve fewer past champions compared to his previous four occasions as host.

"I think we're not going to get a lot of the past champions coming because obviously, they're at the at-risk age," he continued. "Which is going to be a shame, but this is unlike any times we've ever had in the past, so we've got to do what we can do to obviously have the traditions that we'd like to have but also maintain safety guidelines."

One thing that won't be any different is the menu, which consists of steak and chicken fajitas, sushi and sashimi, and milkshakes for dessert.

Woods will host the dinner on Tuesday, Nov. 10, two days before the Masters begins.
