Angel Cabrera was ranked seventy nine in the world coming into the Masters 2009.
He incredibly won that year in a playoff over Chad Campbell and Kenny Perry. It was Masters Perry, ranked in Top 10 at the time, must have won. He guided by 2 with 2 to play and a whole gallery willing him home. He just could not get it done. He bogeyed the final 2 holes as well as opened the door for Angel in a playoff.
Perry told that he might not ever get this scope once again, but they had a whole lot of fun being there. It was really a blast for him to get in there and fight with them. He just did not get it done today. He had the tournament to win. He lost the tournament.
For Angel, it was his 2nd major in the past 3 years as he also won the US Open in 2007. Speaking about winning the Masters, he told that something every player would want to have. It is the end of the world. When they put the green jacket on, he had goosebumps. He could not even explain what was going through his body.
Earlier on Wednesday, the eve of the seventyninth Masters, the crisply stiffened jackets of Augusta National again showed the contradiction of their pursuit, this being a great event run by dudes rooted in bizarreness.
