A missed cut pays off for Cabrera

By Brian Wacker, PGATOUR.COM Site Producer

AUGUSTA, Ga. -- Sometimes missing the cut isn’t such a bad thing. That’s what Angel Cabrera did last week in Houston. The result? Three hours of range work with coach Charlie Epps.

“I had to keep working,” Cabrera said Saturday night after shooting a 67 that has him tied for second. “That’s part of it.”

The other part of it, Cabrera said, is having his son on the bag this week.

While little Angel wasn’t on the bag the last time Cabrera won here in 2009, this obviously isn’t an unfamiliar position for the Argentine. two years ago, he birdied Nos. 15 and 16 then saved par to make it into a three-man playoff with Kenny Perry and Chad Campbell.

What will be Cabrera’s approach to today’s final round?

“It all depends,” he said. “You've got to start your round and start playing and see how things are, but once you are on 10, that's when you know the tournament starts. That's when you know you have to be aggressive.”
