Ángel Cabrera captured The Greenbrier Classic title by two strokes over George McNeill with a 6-under-par 31-33=64 in the final round.
Playing in the final twosome, Cabrera ended his week at The Old White TPC at 16-under 264. The biggest highlight of his round also essentially put the tournament out of reach, as he holed out for eagle from 176 yards on the par-4 13th. He added six birdies and two bogeys to his scorecard, including a 35'2" birdie at the par-3 third and a 17'5" effort at the par-4 11th also drawing a loud applause. This is his third win on the PGA TOUR but the first in a non-major. His previous two victories came in the 2007 U.S. Open at Oakmont and the 2009 Masters. While he's known as a long driver, it was his accuracy that fueled his performance this week. He ranked fourth in fairways hit, first in green in regulation and finished sixth in strokes gained-putting. Cabrera entered the week 158th in the FedExCup standings, but moved all the way to 54th. With this win, he is exempt into the PGA Championship. Jul 6 - 5:56 PM

Angel Cabrera conjured up a 6-under-par 30-34=64 in the third round of The Greenbrier Classic to stake claim to the clubhouse lead 10-under 200.

Cabrera lit up The Old White TPC for seven birdies to just one bogey. Four of those birdies fell from outside of 18 feet, with the longest coming on the par-4 16th from 28'9". He gained over five strokes with the flat stick, needing 26 swipes with the putter on the afternoon. The Argentine entered the week 158th in the FedExCup standings, but seems to have his sights set on cracking the top 125 to earn his way into the Playoffs.
Jul 5 - 4:40 PM

Angel Cabrera crafted a 2-under-par 37-32=69 in the third round of the Quicken Loans National to reach the 54-hole mark at 1-over 214.

Cabrera surrounded a birdie on the par-4 fourth with bogeys on the second and fifth holes headed out at Congressional Country Club, and then added three birdies without a blemish on the back. Among the highlights was a 15-foot birdie on the par-3 13th followed by a 10'8" birdie on the par-4 14th. He entered the week 161st in the FedExCup standings, so he needs all the birdies he can muster in an effort to try and make the Playoffs.

Ángel Cabrera circled six birdies on his way to a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in the final round of the Travelers Championship, good for 10-under 270 on the week.

Cabrera followed up his season-low 65 with another red number. El Pato was scorching around the green, rolling in seven putts from six-to-nine feet, and then added a 24'7" birdie bomb on the par-4 seventh hole. The Argentine walked off the final green with 2.340 strokes-gained putting on the day. This will go in the books as his first top 15 since last year's Open Championship.

Ángel Cabrera bombarded TPC River Highlands with a 5-under-par 33-32=65 in the third round of the Travelers Championship, reaching the 54-hole mark at 7-under 203.

Cabrera started off with a bang, rolling in an eight footer for birdie on the par-4 first hole. He reached three-under par through seven holes before giving one back on the par-4 ninth and then returned to even-par with a double bogey on the par-4 10th. This is where the fun began for the Argentine as he birdied five of his last seven holes including a seven-yard hole out to close out his third round. Today's aggregate is his lowest on the PGA TOUR since last year's 63 at this very venue.
Jun 21 - 1:03 PM

Ángel Cabrera is set to compete in his 15th U.S. Open.

That's all that really needs to be said. Cabrera has earned a reputation of showing up on the game's biggest stages without any warning in terms of current form or statistical analysis. He is the winner of the 2007 U.S. Open at Oakmont and also captured the 2009 Masters, nearly doing so again in 2013. Expect him to enjoy the long layout of Pinehurst No. 2.
Jun 10 - 9:21 AM

Ángel Cabrera stumbled to a 3-over-par 39-36=75 in the third round of the Wells Fargo Championship to fall into a tie for 11th at 6-under 210.

Cabrera was the 18-hole leader and the 36-hole co-leader, but a trio of front-nine bogeys were more than he could overcome today. His only birdie of the day came at the par-5 10th after chipping it to 4'11" from just short of the green, but it would be erased by a fourth and final bogey on the par-4 14th. He will have to go low in the final round as he now finds himself seven strokes behind J.B. Holmes.
May 3 - 5:55 PM

Overnight leader Ángel Cabrera followed his opening 66 at the Wells Fargo Championship with a 3-under-par 36-33=69 to post 9-under 135 at the break, good for a share of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

El Pato went just 2-for-5 in scrambling today, but he capitalized where you'd expect him to, on the four par 5s. Cabrera circled birdies on each -- he birdied three of them on Thursday -- including a round-long 22'9" at No. 10, his first hole of the day. His consecutive red numbers mark the first time he's achieved that feat on the PGA TOUR since the first two rounds of last year's AT&T National. He hadn't connected sub-70s since rounds 1 and 2 of the Byron Nelson nearly a year ago.
May 2 - 5:53 PM

Ángel Cabrera enjoyed a 6-under-par 33-33=66 for his opening round of the Wells Fargo Championship, good for outright possession of the clubhouse lead.

Today is likely to be an anomaly given his recent health (left shoulder) and form. He hadn't broken 68 all season and it's his lowest round on the PGA TOUR since a closing 63 at last year's Travelers Championship over 10 months ago. Still, Cabrera rewarded the remaining faithful with seven birdies, two of which of the zero-putt variety from six yards and 14 yards at Nos. 5 and 11, respectively. His longest conventional conversion measured 17'7" at the par-4 third. The Argentine hit only 11 greens in regulation, so he pretty much squeezed as low a number as possible from Quail Hollow today.
May 1 - 12:39 PM

Ángel Cabrera is set to compete in his fifth Wells Fargo Championship.

There has been concern regarding Cabrera's shoulder, with speculation building that he may even undergo surgery after the Masters. As he did in 2013, he chose to compete in an event in his home country and finished second. It seems that the surgery is fine for now. Digging into his past at Quail Hollow, he finished third in 2010 but hasn't cracked the top 70 in any of his other four starts. That's kind of par for the course given his feast-or-famine history in general.
Apr 28 - 9:18 PM

Ángel Cabrera signed for a bogey-free, 4-under-par 33-35=68 following his opening round of the Shell Houston Open.

This isn't what you'd expect from a guy battling a bum left shoulder. Cabrera entered the week 1-for-7 on the season with a T52 at Riviera. He hadn't scored his low in any of his 16 rounds this season. He split nine (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation at the Golf Club of Houston today. The precision yielded four birdies, the longest measuring just 13'9" at the par-5 15th hole. He kept his card clean with a par save from 10'3", one of 17 conversions inside 11 feet.
Apr 3 - 5:34 PM

Ángel Cabrera is set to take on Bay Hill in the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Cabrera has been battling an ailment with his left shoulder, and it shows in his recent results. He ranks a distant 214th in the FedExCup standings, missing five of six cuts including his last two. Savvy gamers know that history shows he plays the best on the biggest stages, so this could be looked at as nothing more than prep for the Masters.
Mar 19 - 9:14 PM

Ángel Cabrera settled for a 1-over-par 34-38=72 for his opening round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

Back in play despite an injury to his left shoulder, Cabrera split 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation, but got up and down just twice and added a three-putt bogey from just outside 42 feet at the par-5 13th where he took a drop for an unplayable lie off the tee. He offset those four bogeys with three birdies, the only notable of which measuring 15'9" at the par-4 18th hole.
Jan 30 - 3:49 PM

Ángel Cabrera alerted his followers on Facebook that he's going to compete in next week's Waste Management Phoenix Open.

The big fella hasn't played since missing the cut at the Shriners in mid-October due to lingering physical issues related to his left shoulder (that led to his early WD at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba). In its final 2013 issue, Golfweek relayed a report from Argentina's newspaper La Nacion that Cabrera may have season-ending surgery on the shoulder following the Masters.
Jan 21 - 2:14 PM

Ángel Cabrera turned in a 1-under-par 33-38=71 for his opening round of the 108° VISA Open de Argentina on the NEC Series-PGA TOUR Latinoamérica.

Back inside the ropes following a shoulder injury that prevented him from competing in the OHL Classic at Mayakoba, the Argentine circled five birdies to help offset a bogey-triple bogey stumble through holes 5 and 6 (his 14th and 15th holes of the round). He signed his card sitting four strokes off the pace of overnight co-leaders Ryan Blaum and Rafael Echenique. Cabrera will continue to be a cheap source for starts during the biggest events for which he always seemed to play well. Unless he's ailing entering the Masters, gamers are almost required to make room for him at the season's first major.
