It has now become a regular issue about Masters. Once people start to begin talks and analysis of the Masters, they find Angel Cabrera topping the board with his impressive scores. And why will it not be? Angel is the only player who has both Major Championship degree and the Masters Championship degree. He has won the 2007 U S Open at Oakmont, and the 2009 Masters. The Shell Houston open was no exception to this trend for the last couple of years. Last Thursday at the same open, he shot a -6 under par 66.
Angel Cabrera began his day on the front nine, his bogey free round by making the turn at -2 under 34 was a sight to savor, and then he hit the back nine in a full sprint. Starting at number 10, a hat trick of birdies seemed a piece of cake for him, and then he added one at the 18th hole at the Redstone Golf Course. He finished with a tie with Jason Kokrak which makes him just two shots far from the pace set by D.A. Points.
But the spring PGA tour had not gone nice on the 43 year old Cabrera from Cordoba, Argentina evident from his missing the cut at the Farmers Insurance Open, and last week at Bay Hill. The Northern Trust Open saw Angel Cabrera getting tied at the 33rd place.
After six events, Angel is currently 132 in FedEx Cup points after six events. When Jim Furyk, and Tiger Woods both finished at the runners–up place Angel Cabrera became victorious by four strokes at Oakmont in 2007. His victory at Augusta in 2009 came by beating Chad Campbell and Kenny Perry in the playoff after Campbell was eliminated on the first playoff hole and Perry on the second.
