Angel Cabrera, a two-time major golf champion, reentered competitive golfing events this week after serving a 30-month prison term in Brazil and Argentina.

His return to the sport follows his release in August from imprisonment for multiple crimes, including allegations of domestic violence leveled by his ex-wife and two ex-girlfriends.

Cabrera, renowned for claiming the Masters in 2009 and the US Open in 2007, made his comeback at the Abierto del Litoral (Coastal Open) held at the Rosario Golf Club in Argentina.

His opening-round 71 showcased three birdies and three bogeys, marking his first 72-hole tournament since the 2020 Bridgestone Senior Players Championship.

Noteworthy Performance and Making the Cut

Despite the tumultuous past, Cabrera displayed resilience, ending day two at -5 after an impressive round comprising four birdies and an eagle in the final eight holes, securing his comfortable passage into subsequent rounds.

Legal Constraints and Personal Aspirations

Reports indicate that the two-time major winner requires permission to leave his homeland, a condition following his release, as noted by Golf Digest.

Cabrera, now 54, expressed a desire to move forward, stating his intent to return home, reunite with family, and embark on a new chapter in life post-release.

Cabrera, who commenced his professional career in 1989, boasts an impressive tally of 41 tournament victories, including three triumphs on the PGA Tour.

Throughout his illustrious career spanning nearly three decades, he has amassed career earnings close to $15 million across approximately 300 events.
