On 2007 Angel Cabrera won the U.S. open at Oakmont near Pittsburgh, that proved to me one of his first major championships. He concluded the tournament by topping Jim Furyk and Tiger Woods by one stroke. Thus becoming the first argentine player to win the U.S. open.
He won the 2009 Masters Tournament in a three-way, sudden death playoff, defeating Chad Campbell and Kenny Perry after the first and second playoff holes respectively. He was the first Argentine golfer to win a masters and also the lowest ranked golfer, at that time he was ranked 69th by the Official World Golf Ranking – well worth a quid or two on the golf betting william hill markets.
In the 2013 Masters Tournament he was in the final pairing. But was defeated by Adam Scott on the second hole of a sudden death playoff against Cabrera. Had he won, he would have been the second oldest golfer to have won the masters.
The oldest winner being Jack Nicklaus at the age of 46. He had won the Masters Tournament extraordinarily in 1986. That was a one time opportunity for Angel Cabrera languishing at 269th rank in the world. However this gave the opportunity for Adam to bring Australia their first green jacket.
