Three Argentine golfers will take part in this year’s Masters. This has not happened since the year 2001, when Angel Cabrera, Jose Coceres and Eduardo Romero all participated in the event.
Fabian Gomez and Emiliano Grillo will make their debuts, Angel Cabrera makes his yearly trek to his favorite golf course.
It will be Angel’s seventeenth appearance at the Augusta National after making his very first appearance in the year 2000, thanks to a 4th spot finish in Open Championship the earlier year. He dropped the cut that year, but in the year 2001, he led the event heading into number fifteen on Saturday. Angel finally got his only green jacket in the year 2009, defeating Kenny Perry and Chad Campbell in a 3 way playoff. His love for Masters translates his game each time he walks through the doors of the club, no matter how low his game might be.
This is inevitable that as years go by it would become greatly tough for Cabrera to contest, but Argentine golf fans have the luck of watching him play well in Augusta. An interesting fact is that Angel is the only golfer in history to have won and lost Masters in a playoff. With this type of a range of experience, the veteran golfer would serve as mentor for his 2 fellow countrymen.
Grillo told that there are really invisible things there. Some of the greens’ drops seem go one way, and they actually fall in the opposite direction. He feel that he still require to get to know the course; this is a matter of learning how to play the field. Someone who really knows the way around here and could serve him a lot is el ‘Pato’ [Angel]. They practiced together on Tuesday. He attempted to ask him everything he could, without disturbing him.
