PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. -- Angel Cabrera has withdrawn from THE PLAYERS Championship, citing personal reasons.
The Argentine opened with a 78 Thursday that included a 9 on the par-3 17th hole, where he hit three balls into the water before finding the putting surface.
This was Cabrera’s 10th PLAYERS Championship and will be the sixth time he didn’t make it to the weekend with five missed cuts. His best finish here was a tie for 14th in 2009.
Cabrera was the third player to withdraw on Thursday. D.A. Points pulled out just before teeing off, while Hunter Haas withdrew after three holes.
