SPOTTED! Disgraced Masters champ returns to golf course after prison release

A matter of weeks after former Masters champion Angel Cabrera was released from prison the Argentine has returned to the golf course. 

Footage of Cabrera was exclusively obtained by Handicap54, which shows the now 53-year-old at El Terrón Golf Club. 

Cabrera, nicknamed The Duck because of the way he walks, spent more than 30 months in three prisons relating to domestic violence offences. 

His legal problems date back to 2016 when he was accused by a number of ex-girlfriends of being verbally and physically abusive. 

Everything came to a head for Cabrera in 2021 when he was arrested in Brazil and extradited back to Argentina. 

His trial was widely covered in Argentina in newspaper and on TV. 

The prosecution painted Cabrera as an extremely dark figure in his exchanges with his former partner Cecilia Torres Mana over a two-year period

Cabrera denied the claims by Torres Mana - a police officer - although court documents revealed he sought treatment for alcohol addiction in 2018. 

He was found guilty of two counts of assault against Torres Mana and began serving a two-year sentence alongside some of Argentina's most violent criminals. 

Per a report by bunkered, Cabrera was briefly housed at a prison nicknamed 'El Penal del Infierno', which translates to 'The Prison from Hell'. 

In November 2022 Cabrera was once again on trial for offences relating to a second woman named Micaela Escudero. 

He was convicted again and was sentenced to another stint of two years and four months but was served it concurrently. 

"Many say prison is bad, but it's not the case, prison has done me good." - Angel Cabrera during his second trial

When Cabrera was released in August 2023, he issued no statement whatsoever, only telling Golf Digest: "I just want to go home, be with my family and start a new phase of my life."

Whilst he is currently free, there are similar charges against the golfer for which he has to answer to. 

Cordoba prosecutor Laura Battistelli confirmed to GD there are 'other victims'. 


Cabrera won the 2009 Masters in a three-way playoff over Chad Campbell and Kenny Perry. 

He was the lowest-ranked golfer to ever win the Masters.

That victory was the second major win of his career after triumphing at the 2007 U.S. Open.

Augusta National chairman Fred Ridley has not commented on whether Cabrera would be welcomed back to the major.
