Angel Cabrera Wins 2009 Masters
Kenny Perry was sitting on the tee at 17 with one arm slowly making its way into the green jacket. Perry needed to make a par on one of the last two holes to win his first major championship at the ripe age of 48.
He bogeyed the last two holes and then bogeyed his second playoff hole and Angel Cabrera just hung around, hoping something might happen to give him a shot.
Cabrera made par on the second playoff hole to win an absolutely fantastic Masters. Congrats to Angel, and to Kenny, we feel for you. Don't beat yourself up too bad. It was a valiant effort.
More to come tomorrow. Augusta National, we will miss you.
