Will the 2009 Masters winner, who was released after serving time for assault,
return to Augusta National Golf Club (par 72) in Augusta, Georgia, USA, in April?
Argentina’s Angel Cabrera was paroled from prison in August after serving two years for domestic violence and assault.
Cabrera’s manager, Manuel Tagle, recently told a media outlet that “he is pushing for a visa to travel to the United States and other places.”
Visa issuance is uncertain. The U.S. government does not grant visas to people with criminal records.
Augusta National Golf Club Chairman Fred Ridley said on the 19th
(Korean time) at the Santa Maria Golf Club in Panama City, Panama,
where the Latin American Amateur Championship (LAAC) is being held, “We are in communication with Cabrera. If he receives a U.S. visa,
he will participate in the Masters.” “You can do it,” he said.
Cabrera will participate in the PGA Tour Champions (Senior)
tournament held in Morocco on the 22nd of next month and the Korn Ferry (PGA 2nd Division)
Tour tournament held in Argentina.
Cabrera, 54 years old, turned professional in 1989. On the PGA Tour, he has three wins
(two major wins). His first major win was at the 2007 US Open.
His last regular tour win was the PGA Tour Greenbrier Classic in July 2014.
