Angel Cabrera won the 2009 Masters on Sunday in a sudden death play-off at Augusta National.
On Tuesday, Cabrera was welcomed home in Argentina as a hero.
Cabrera addressed the crowd in his hometown of Villa Alende, Argentina, saying, “Green suits me.”Â He went on talk about his hard work and laid out his plan to win more majors.Â “With sacrifice and work, anything can be done.Â Now I’m going for the third major and I’m not going to stop until I win at least five.”
Cabrera captured his first Masters win and his second win in a major (2007 US Open) on Sunday in a 3 hole, sudden-death play-off against Kenny Perry and Chad Campbell.Â Cabrera joins South Africa’s Gary Player as the foreign player to win both the US Open and the Masters.
In case you missed it, after shooting 3-over par (75) on Saturday and a 2-over par (74) Sunday at the Master, a very bitter Sergio Garcia took out his frustrations on the Augusta National Golf Course.
“I don’t like it, to tell you the truth. I don’t think it is fair. Even when it’s dry you still get mud balls in the middle of the fairway. It’s too much of a guessing game.”Â When asked when he would do to fix it, Sergio said, “They can do whatever they want. It’s not my problem. I just come here and play and then go home.”
Tuesday, Garcia issued an apology.Â He apologized for blaming the course instead of rightfully blaming himself.
It would be nice if Sergio just kept quiet and worked on his game and worked on dealing with the pressure of majors better (0 major wins).Â What do y’all think?
