Player Notes

Has a lot to thank of fellow country-man Eduardo Romero who lived two blocks away from Cabrera and encouraged him to take up the game at the age of 15. When Cabrera failed in three attempts to get his European Tour card, Romero underwrote Cabrera?s expenses in 1995. Has the nickname "Pato". Played on the 2005 Presidents Cup team.
