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.
Jul 3 - 4:23 PM

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.
Jul 2 - 6:19 PM

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.
Jul 1 - 10:15 AM

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.
Jun 18 - 8:42 PM

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.
Jun 12 - 8:49 PM

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.
May 29 - 5:14 PM

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.
May 8 - 5:35 PM

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.
May 4 - 11:28 PM

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.
Apr 12 - 5:05 AM

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.
Apr 10 - 1:50 PM

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.
