AUGUSTA, Ga. -- Angel Cabrera learned the game as a caddy at Cordoba Golf in Villa Allende in his native Argentina.
And the man who shares the final-round lead at the 77th Masters with Brandt Snedeker is headed back there next week to play in a PGA TOUR Latinoamerica event there.
Cabrera, who is bidding for his second Green Jacket, has won the Abierto OSDE Del Centro seven times in its 82-year-old history. Those wins came in a seven-year span, including consecutively in 2005, '06 and '07, and he shot a course-record 60 in his 2001 victory.
He and his mentor Eduardo Romero have reconstructed all 18 greens at the course over the last two years. Mindful of his roots, Cabrera also donated money to build a comfortable caddy shack.
