Ángel Cabrera turned in a 3-under-par 35-34=69 for his opening round of the Wells Fargo Championship and finished four strokes off the clubhouse lead.
Back in play after a back injury bumped him from THE PLAYERS during his second round, the Argentine traded six birdies with two bogeys at Quail Hollow today. He opened the walk with a zero-putt nine-yarder from just off the putting surface at the par-5 10th hole. Cabrera's longest conventional birdie ran 11'7" at the par-4 fourth, but his longest conversion on a green today saved par from 12'5" at the par-4 11th. Overall, he landed 13 greens and walked off ranked seventh in strokes gained: tee-to-green with a clip north of 3.625. May 14 - 6:31 PM

Ángel Cabrera withdrew from THE PLAYERS during his second round, citing a back injury.

Cabrera was laying 3 in the rough beside the green at the par-4 seventh hole -- his 16th of the round -- when he called it quits. He was 1-over-par on the day and 4-over through 34 holes at the time. This is his sixth mid-tournament WD in 235 PGA TOUR starts. He arrived at TPC Sawgrass ranked 148th in the FedExCup standings. If he's able, El Pato will try again at next week's Wells Fargo Championship.

Ángel Cabrera is ranked 139th in the FedExCup standings ahead of this week's PLAYERS.

The Argentine is 6-for-12 at THE PLAYERS with a T14 back in 2009 going in the books as his lone top 25. His game is better suited for a course that can be overpowered. TPC Sawgrass requires positioning off the tee and touch around the greens. Gamers can safely avoid Cabrera this week as there will be plenty of better investment opportunities in the future.

Ángel Cabrera lost momentum in a 1-over-par 35-38=73 in his third round at the Masters to slip outside the top 20.

The 2009 champion and 2013 runner-up moved into the top 10 with birdies on the front nine's two par 5s but was ragged after that and ended the day at 2-under 214 and 14 shots off the lead. His first slip came at the ninth before he spiralled down the leaderboard with a double bogey-5 at the short 12th. Cabrera hit back with a birdie at 13 but suffered a walk-off bogey to fall to T21 with a round to play. He was just 1-for-3 in sand saves on day three.

Ángel Cabrera carded a 3-under-par 36-33=69 in his second round of the 79th Masters to post 3-under 141 at the midpoint.

So much for the potential distraction of his son's troubles of a week ago. The 2009 champ at Augusta National is just two strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead, although he'll be exponentially adrift once Jordan Spieth concludes today's round. Cabrera landed 11 greens in regulation today and circled an eagle (at the par-5 13th) and four birdies to offset three bogey-5s. He played the par 5s in 5-under. Interestingly, the 45-year-old Argentine has alternated finishes outside the top 15 in the Masters with top 10s since 2008. He missed last year's cut, so in that context, he was due to have a good week.

Ángel Cabrera recorded a 2-over-par 37-37=74 in his opening round of the Shell Houston Open.

Cabrera publicized his condolences to the family of Luciano Duarte on Twitter on Wednesday afternoon. Duarte, whose first name has also been reported to be Luis and Mathias by various outlets, died in the single car crash in which Cabrera's son, Federico, was driving this week. As the risk of making an assumption about the relationship that dad has with son, it couldn't have been an easy decision to remain in Houston and play golf, especially with the Masters right around the corner. For the record, the 45-year-old wiped away four birdies with four bogeys and a double at the Golf Club of Houston today. He's in the books at T117 in the 144-man field after 18 holes.
Apr 2 - 9:11 PM

Federico Cabrera, son of two-time major champion Ángel, was seriously injured when the car he was driving drove off a bridge, killing his passenger.

It occurred in Río Ceballos in Cabrera's native Argentina. Federico lost control of the vehicle (a Camaro) on a short bridge over a river. His airbag deployed. Luis Duarte, who was also in the car, died. The guard rails on the bridge were allegedly torn off during a flood in February. Ángel is scheduled to compete in this week's Shell Houston Open. He's booked to go off the first tee at the Golf Club of Houston at 1:10 p.m. ET in Thursday's opening round, but it would be surprising if he remains committed to play.
Apr 1 - 10:55 AM

Ángel Cabrera looks to tidy up his game this week at the Shell Houston Open.

The Argentine thrives at next week's Augusta National but hasn't taken the same liking to this week's venue. Although Golf Club of Houston is set up similarly in many aspects, Cabrera has nothing better than a T16 finish in eight attempts. Always a wildcard when he tees it up, gamers should reserve him for lineups where they can afford to take a risk.
Mar 30 - 11:04 PM

Ángel Cabrera could only muster an even-par 33-38=71 in the third round of the Northern Trust Open, but is one off the clubhouse lead at 4-under 209.

Cabrera managed to corral three birdies on his lap around Riviera Country Club, all from within 10 feet and on the first 11 holes, but a double bogey and a bogey on his back nine killed his momentum. The flat stick really hurt him, as he gained just shy of four strokes tee-to-green, but lost over three strokes with the putter. Still in the fray, he will try and win for the first time on the PGA TOUR since his victory at The Greenbrier Classic in July of 2014.
Feb 21 - 5:44 PM

Ángel Cabrera carded a 3-under-par 33-35=68 in his second round of the Northern Trust Open to post 4-under 138 at the midpoint, good for very early possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

The Argentine went out in the fourth threesome off the 10th tee, so his score won't hold for long. It was a wild day, though. He went just 2-for-6 in scrambling with four bogeys, but picked off seven birdies, including four in a row beginning at the 14th hole. His longest conversion of the loop me4asured 17'10" for birdie at the par-4 fifth. He's usually only considered for weekly games at the Masters, but he'll toss a bone to the most faithful every once in a while.

Ángel Cabrera carded a 2-under-par 35-34=69 in the third round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open and joins a bevy of players just inside the top 10 at 8-under 205.

Cabrera began his day with a 36'2" birdie from off the green on the par-4 first hole at TPC Scottsdale, and he answered that with a 25'8" birdie on the par-4 second hole. The rest of his round was a mixed bag, as three short birdies were able to offset a trio of bogeys spread across the scorecard. He will attempt to earn his first PGA TOUR top 10 since his win at The Greenbrier Classic in 2014 in Sunday's final round.
Jan 31 - 5:26 PM

Ángel Cabrera conjured up a 2-under-par 36-33=69 in the second round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open to reach the 36-hole mark at 6-under 136.

Cabrera finds himself two off the clubhouse lead at TPC Scottsdale at the time of his posting. Beginning this cold and rainy day on the 10th hole, he mixed one bogey and one birdie among seven pars. He added three more birdies on the front nine, including an 18-footer on the par-4 second hole, to just one bogey. A player of his length definitely had the advantage on a day like today, as the ball wasn't traveling as far as in years past. He will try and keep it going on the weekend in search of his fourth PGA TOUR win .
Jan 30 - 7:37 PM

Angel Cabrera crafted a bogey-free 4-under-par 33-34=67 in the first round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

The bomber got his work done about the way one would expect, capitalizing on each of the three par 5s at TPC Scottsdale with birdies. His only other birdie was an 18'3" mid-ranger on the par-4 second hole. The irons were the key to his success, landing 17 GIR. We will now wait and see if he can keep this up for another 54 holes.
Jan 29 - 3:04 PM

Ángel Cabrera makes his way back to The Plantation Course at Kapalua Resort for his third appearance at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions.

The Argentine finished T15 in his 2008 tournament debut before improving to T10 just two years later. Cabrera won the 2014 Greenbrier Classic and now finds himself back on Maui for another look. It's been a slow start to the season, with a missed cut in his sole PGA TOUR start. Overseas, Cabrera also missed the cut at the Open de Argentina just four weeks ago.
Jan 5 - 8:34 PM

Ángel Cabrera will kick off his 2014-15 PGA TOUR season during this week's OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

The Argentine will be making his OHL Classic debut but he's no stranger to Latin America, collecting more than 40 wins south of the border since 1991, albeit on lesser TOURs. This will be his first start since a season-ending T12 at last season's BMW Championship in Denver, Colorado. Cabrera always comes with a pile of missed cut risk, but this looks like a week where he could provide value in many fantasy formats.
