Argentine professional golfer Ángel Cabrera also known as "El Pato" ("The Duck") in English because of his duck like walk is a two time Major Champion. He is the only golfer from Argentina who has won the U.S. Open and the Masters.
At the age of ten Cabrera joined the Córdoba Country Club as a caddy and developed a passion for the game. He is known for his interesting personality and part of both the PGA Tour and the European Tour.
Phil Mickelson took two bad blotches with him to the 1st tee earlier on Thursday.
He blocked off one, and might be on his way to finishing the 2nd. Phil, highlighted by an 278-yard three-wood which fixed a tap-in eagle at the par-five 8th hole, opened the seventy ninth Masters with a two-under-par seventy. Dating to the 1st round of the Masters 2013, Mickelson’s last 5 rounds at Augusta National, till Thursday, had all been over par. He escaped the cut here previous year, for just the 2nd time.
Angel Cabrera is a professional golfer who hails from Argentina and is a member of both the European Tour and the US PGA Tour.
Affectionately known as 'The Duck' for the waddling gait that he has, Cabrera is a two time major winner having won the US Open title in 2007 and the Masters title in 2009, he is also the first and only Argentine golfer to win both the major titles in the country's history.
Alberto Contador has said that he’ll be participating in the next year’s Giro d’Italia and in the 2015 Tour de France.
Contador won’t be defending his Vuelta a Espana title that he won this year in the next edition of the race. He said that participating in two grand tours will be very tough for him. He said that Giro d’Italia is a race that not only motivates him but he also likes it very much. Contador not participating in the 2015 Vuelta a Espana would be very much advantageous for Chris Froome.
For a time last year, whatever Adam Scott touched turned into gold. The Aussie became the world number one, won a major event, had ten finishes in the top ten and his cut streak extended to a whopping 44 events but he is looking for a lot more from his game.
The US PGA Tour season of the Australian ended on a decent enough note as he finished at ninth in the Tour Championship, but it is not quite close to the top as he would want to be and it also means he will be spending his off season looking to improve his game.
Rory Mcilroy has surely been working hard on his golfing skills and this clearly reflects in the recent successes that he has been able to achieve even without the help of any lady luck. Mcilroy won the PGA National Championship on the 10th of August, 2014.

Recently, Rory Mcilroy won his second title in Kentucky at the golf club known as Valhalla and thus was able to win his 4th major golfing championship. The attractive blonde model- Ashley Bongiovanni has been claiming that she has been the lucky charm that has worked for Mcilroy and his recent successes.
Matt Kuchar stood to the 18th green as he was unable to clinch it by a lead of four- shot. This happened in April at the Houston Open. So a very abrupt closing to the playoff. After seven days Kuchar lead Masters share but not before a putt of four in the fourth hole at the Augusta National.
Great news for Lee Westwood fans- the leading English Westwood golfer has been confirmed for the upcoming Scottish Open tournament.
Along with Westwood, Darren Clarke has also been confirmed for the prestigious tournament to be hosted at Royal Aberdeen. Scottish Open 2014 is scheduled to take place from 10th to 13th July and would feature some of the best names from golf such as Jimmy Walker, Rory McIlroy and Phil Mickelson, apart from Clarke and Westwood.
