Cabrera Wins Masters After Sudden Death

This is a happy day for Angel Cabrera. The 39-year-old Argentinian won his first major title and became the first South American to win a Masters golf tournament this afternoon, defeating 48-year-old Kenny Perry, who almost became the oldest major champion in golf history. Cabrera made par on the second playoff hole and came through with a surprise win over Perry, who was up two shots with two holes to go. The biggest story on the earlier tees was Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson’s thrilling pairing. Woods dropped shots on his last two holes and came in after Mickelson at eight-under 280. Mickelson tied a Masters record with a six-under 30 in the beginning, but floundered on the back nine.
