Former green jacket winner Angel Cabrera continued his build-up to next week's Masters with an encouraging 3-under-par 34-35=69 in Friday's second round at the Shell Houston Open, climbing to T10 on the live leaderboard with a 36-hole score of 6-under 138.
Cabrera has done virtually nothing this season and arrived in Texas having missed five of six worldwide cuts. Nevertheless, many will still see him as a sleeper pick for the Masters given his storied career at Augusta National (win, second and four other top 10s) and his performance so far this week has given gamers a nudge. Today, he split 10 (of 14) fairways, hit 12 greens in regulation and gained 3.38 strokes putting. The highlights were a 25-footer for birdie at No. 9 and a 21'1" conversion at 15 which he followed with another par breaker at 16. The Argentine also ticked No. 6 while his only dropped shot of the day came at 17 after finding sand with his approach. He's a full 10 shots behind leader Sung Kang but, so far, this is a timely return to form. Mar 31 - 3:04 PM

Ángel Cabrera looks for an Augusta National tuneup as he takes his talents into this week's Shell Houston Open.

The Argentine often flashes some form out of nowhere when the Masters rolls around, but that hasn't translated to this event which is setup in similar fashion. Cabrera is 6-for-10 at the Shell Houston Open with three top 25s, highlighted by a T16 in 2013. More recently, El Pato has missed the cut in four of his last starts, dating back to August of last year, so his game appears to be a bit adrift. In on a sponsor's invite this week, the three-time TOUR winner would love to bank some FedExCup Points this week as he currently finds it tough to schedule out of the Past Champions category.

Sponsor invite Angel Cabrera hopes for better results in his third visit to El Camaleón Golf Club and this week's OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

The three-time TOUR winner and two-time major champ is relegated to Past Champion status for this season after finishing 180th in the FedExCup standings for a second straight year. He had just one top-25 finish (T24, Masters) last season in 22 events, missing eight cuts. The 47-year-old has made just one start so far this season with T50 two weeks ago at the Sanderson Farms (71-70-68-75) and is making his third straight appearance at the OHL with back-to-back missed cuts in each of the last two editions, including by nine last year 11-over 78-75=153. Cabrera's most recent TOUR win is the 2014 Greenbrier Classic.

Ángel Cabrera withdrew from this week's RBC Canadian Open during round one action, he cited a shoulder injury as the culprit and was 8-over through eight holes at the time. UPDATE: Cabrera returned to action August 4th with an even-par 70 at the Travelers.

The Argentine squared three bogeys, a double, and a triple before calling it quits. It makes sense that his shoulder was bothering him, because something was clearly off. This goes in the books as his ninth mid-tournament WD in 262 career starts. With just one top 25 in 19 starts this season, Cabrera was not likely on the radar for many gamers. At 180th in the FedExCup standings, his TOUR status is in serious jeopardy. His exemption from winning the 2014 Greenbrier Classic expires at the end of the 2015-16 season.

Ángel Cabrera co-led the Barbasol Championship after 18 holes with 6-under 65, but chased with progressively worse rounds of 71-76 and at 1-under-par 212, will not have a reservation for the final round.

A total of 20 players were T63 on 2-under 140 after two rounds so a second cut of low 70 and ties was required after 54 holes. The 46-year-old Argentinian, 180th in the FedExCup standings and in the final season of full-exempt status from his win at the 2014 Greenbrier, was still T16 thru 36 holes, but cratered to a 5-over 39-37=76 to miss the 54-hole cut by two shots. Other early departures: 211- Zac Blair; Tyrone Van Aswegen; D.A. Points ... 212- Lucas Lee; Wes Roach ... 213- Matt Dobyns ... 214- Derek Ernst ... 216- OQer Josh Broadaway; Matt Bettencourt.

Overnight co-leader Ángel Cabrera back-pedaled to an even-par 36-35=71 in the second round of the 2nd Barbasol Championship, dropping 15 places to T16 on 6-under 136.

The 46-year-old co-led after 18 holes with Jhonattan Vegas after nearly identical laps, each carding one eagle, four birdies and no bogeys. He couldn't keep pace with Vegas in R2 however, and now trails him by 11 shots after Vegas tossed up a course-record 60. The two-time major champion opened birdie, triple, bogey, birdie, birdie on Nos. 1-5, and played his final 13 in 10 pars, two birdies and a bogey-4 at the 17th that completed his scoring.

Ángel Cabrera ripped through Grand National’s Lake Course en route to a bogey-free, 6-under-par 33-32=65 during round one of the Barbasol Championship, grabbing the early clubhouse lead with the afternoon wave still in progress.

While much the golf world was watching Phil Mickelson tie the major championship scoring record at Royal Troon Golf Club with an 8-under 63, Cabrera put his talent to work stateside. He opened on the back nine and made his first big splash at the par-5 13th, holing out from the fringe (59'7") for eagle. He would add four birdies to his scorecard, while also keeping it void of any bogeys. Cabrera is missing his second straight Open Championship after a run of 10 straight appearances, but this is his first visit to Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail at Grand National. So far he's having no troubles adjusting to the unfamiliar venue.

Ángel Cabrera makes his way back to Quail Hollow Club for an eighth appearance at this week's Wells Fargo Championship.

The Argentine finished solo-third here back in 2010 and has a good cut-making track record at 5-for-7. The only downside to his play at Quail Hollow has been the weekend where he's posted 1-over 73 or worse in 8-of-9 weekend rounds. Cabrera ranks 173rd in the FedExCup standings ahead of this week, owning just one top 25 in 12 starts. With Cabrera's bomb-and-gouge style of play, this could be a nice potential venue to jump-start his season.

Ángel Cabrera arrives at the 80th Masters this week, in search of a third career major championship victory.

The Argentine ranks 179th in strokes gained ahead of this week's event, but form has never mattered in the past. Prior to his 2009 Masters victory, he opened the season with missed cuts in three of his first five stroke-play events. In 2013, he arrived with one top 25 in seven starts before his playoff-loss to Adam Scott. Cabrera is a certified course horse here at Augusta National, with 10 top 25s in 16 appearances, but his form certainly makes it hard to pull the trigger.

Ángel Cabrera preps for next week's big event as he takes on the field at this week's Shell Houston Open.

The Argentine always finds a way to show up near the top of the leaderboard at Augusta National, but it hasn't been the same here at the Golf Club of Houston's Tournament Course. In nine visits, he's collected three top 25s, missed the cut in four editions, his best being a T16 (2013). Gamers should note the decline in consistency at this point in his career, and should only treat Cabrera as a boom-or-bust option.

Making his tournament debut, Angel Cabrera twirled a bogey-free 6-under-par 34-32=66 in round two of the CareerBuilder Challenge to reach the midpoint at 11-under 133, up 12 places on the live leaderboard to T6.

The 46-year-old chased 5-under 67 on day one at La Quinta CC with today's blemish-free loop of the Nicklaus Tournament Course. He birdied both of the par 5s on his outward half and added birdie at the par-4 13th before circling three straight on Nos. 15-17. Argentinians have won two of the first nine tourneys to open 2015-16 with Emiliano Grillo winning the season-opening in a playoff and Fabian Gomez winning last week's Sony in a playoff as well. Neither are playing this week so it gives Cabrera a chance to make up some ground in the Official World Golf Ranking. Grillo, OWGR No. 32, and Gomez, No. 55, comfortably lead Cabrera (No. 227) in the race to represent their country in Rio at the 2016 Olympics.

Ángel Cabrera missed the FedExCup Playoffs last season and arrives at the holiday break ranked just 149th in the standings.

The Argentine was missing his typical spark last season as he recorded just two top 25s in 19 events. Consistency has never been his calling card, but the lack of a top 10 is concerning to gamers looking to invest. Cabrera did piece together a T3 at the Argentine Open at the beginning of November but the PGA TOUR is a whole different animal.

Ángel Cabrera contests his second consecutive OHL Classic at Mayakoba at the El Camaleón Golf Club.

The last of Cabrera's three wins on TOUR (245 career starts) came at The Greenbrier Classic in 2014. He arrived at the Old White TPC in some form, posting a T24 and T11 heading in. No such animal exists this week, as he's only posted one top-25 finish (T22, Masters) over his last 15 starts on TOUR, missing six cuts during the span and adding two mid-tournament WDs. The 46-year-old opened his 2015-16 season in T55 ( Open) and T50 at the Shriners. He missed the cut by three at last season's OHL on rounds of 74-68 in his only other appearance.

Ángel Cabrera arrives at this week's Open in anticipation for his debut at Silverado Resort and Spa’s North Course.

The Argentine likely wants a mulligan on his 2014-15 season, posting a disappointing 9-for-19 record. There wasn't one aspect of the game that let him down as he finished the season in the red for both strokes gained:tee-to-green as well as putting. The three-time PGA TOUR winner always has a few tricks up his sleeve throughout the season, but he shouldn't be trusted this week, given his current form.

Ángel Cabrera contests his fourth Quicken Loans National this week and enters the tournament ranked 171st in the FedExCup standings.

Cabrera is 2-for-3 at the Quicken Loans Nat'l posting a T24 in 2014 and a T13 in 2013, both at Congressional CC. He's batting .500 on the season with nine made cuts in 18 starts, just two going for top 25s, the latest a T22 at the Masters. He missed three straight cuts in the run-up to Augusta and its been more of the same for the 45-year-old since, posting two missed cuts, two WDs, and four cashes outside of the top 60.
