Angel's Delight

Angel Cabrera won the US Masters last night in a final day that was up there with some of the best in the tournament's illustrious history.

After a fairly disappointing opening two days for the world's number one and two, Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods, they stormed through the field to put themselves with two shots of leader Kenny Perry, who was halfway through his final round at 11-under. With five players are looking like likely challengers, Cabrera was the one struggling the most, and with Perry looking like he was going to hold his nerve, only Mickelson, Woods and (Most likely) Chad Campbell could see the Green Jacket.

Mickelson had shot a ridiculous score of 30 on the front nine – a course record – and as he and his great rival Woods battled, the heat of the competition started to finally have an effect on Perry. With a two shot lead as he started the 17th hole, he managed to bogey the last two holes and force a three way play off with Campbell and Cabrera.

After his tee shot went right behind a tree, the Argentinian looked out of it, but he somehow managed to par the first hole and go on to win the second, after a faltering Perry's golf finally caved in. It's no surprise that Cabrera declared it as 'the happiest moment of my life.'
