Known as “El Pato” (the duck) for his waddling walk, Angel Cabrera got his start in the game when he quit school at the age of 10 to become a full time caddy at the Córdoba Country Club in Argentina.

Cabrera’s status as an ICON starts in his home country where he has grown from a caddy to a major champion. Cabrera became the first Argentine player to win the U.S. Open and the second to win a major, joining Roberto De Vicenzo, who won the British Open in 1967. The Major win for Cabrera sparked massive celebrations across the country while his hometown of Córdoba came to a standstill. As a result of his Major triumph, he was rewarded with Honorary Life Membership on The European Tour and the 2007 Olimpia de Oro (Golden Olympian), Argentina’s sportsperson of the year. Proving he has the tools to win several major championships, Cabrera struck again at the 2009 Masters where his fierce determination and powerful swing helped him prevail in a tense three-man playoff.

The accolades and achievements that Cabrera has received make him an ICON in any language.
