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. May 3 - 8:18 AM

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.
Apr 6 - 7:01 PM

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.
Mar 30 - 8:52 AM

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.

Ángel Cabrera followed his opening 71 at The Greenbrier Classic with a 2-over-par 35-37=72 in today's second round and will miss the cut.

At 3-over 143, the defending champion sat T135 on the leaderboard at last check. He hit 12 greens in regulation today and sat bogey-free 2-under after five holes, but played the remainder in birdie-free 4-over. Cabrera concluded his round with three straight bogeys. He started the week at 160th in the FedExCup standings, but he's fully exempt through 2015-16.

Ángel Cabrera opened his title defense of The Greenbrier Classic with a 1-over-par 34-37=71.

Cabrera wasted no time in filling his own shoes early with a birdie from just inside 21 feet at the par-4 first hole. However, he'd go on to square two bogeys and a double to wipe away a total of three birdies on the round. He split 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation but ranked 152nd in the field of 156 at last check in strokes gained: putting.

Ángel Cabrera ransacked The Old White TPC on his way to victory at last year's Greenbrier Classic and returns for his shot to defend.

The Argentine is still searching for his first top 10 of the season, having collected at least one in 10 of his last 11 seasons. Taking advantage of The Old White TPC's generous fairways, Cabrera split 46 (of 56) fairways on his way to 19 birdies and a pair of eagles. Just like the first four Greenbrier champions, it was his first time seeing the course.

Ángel Cabrera posted even-par 37-33=70 for his opening round of the U.S. Open, finishing five swings in arrears of the clubhouse co-leaders.

The 2007 champ withdrew during two of his last four starts in the last six weeks due to a sore back, so today's effort is welcoming. He hit only 11 greens in regulation but managed to wipe away three bogeys with three birdies, including a walk-off 4 at the 18th hole. The Argentine lives for the majors, but at 159th in the FedExCup standings and coming off the injury, he gave little reason to invest at Chambers Bay.

Ángel Cabrera is scheduled to go off the first tee at Chambers Bay for his opening round of next week's U.S. Open at 7:33 a.m. PT on Thursday.

Cabrera will have had nearly three weeks of rest since withdrawing from the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship before his second round on May 29. He cited a back injury. He claimed the same at THE PLAYERS where he completed only 34 holes. So, all bets are off in Washington next week. The 45-year-old is 156th in the FedExCup standings but fully exempt through 2015-16.

Ángel Cabrera withdrew from the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship prior to his second round due to a back injury.

The Argentine was scheduled to go off the 10th tee at 3:40 p.m. CT. He opened with 4-over-par 37-37=74 with three birdies and seven bogeys. This is his seventh mid-tournament WD in 238 PGA TOUR starts; it's his second in his last four. His last occurred at THE PLAYERS, also because of a back injury. Cabrera started the week slotted 152nd in the FedExCup standings, but he's fully exempt through next season.

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.
