Cabrera wins the 2009 Masters

Well no storybook ending for the 2009 Masters, except for Angel Cabrera.

Mickelson and Woods faded at the end, but even if they hadn’t they wouldn’t have caught Perry, Campbell and Cabrera for the playoff.

Chad Campbell left the game after the 1st playoff hole on the 18th. Then on the 2nd playoff hole on the 10th, Kenny Perry failed in his attempt to win his 1st major and at the same time be the oldest player to win a major. Perry missed the green and chipped 15 feet past the hole, missing the par putt coming back. Cabrera was on the green within birdie range, missed that putt and dropped his second putt for a par and the green jacket.

Big disappointment for Campbell but it must be a huge disappointment for Kenny Perry and his family as it was probably his last opportunity to win a major on the PGA tour. Would have liked to have seen him put the jacket on.

But that’s the way it is with sports – only one winner and everyone else is a ‘coulda been’.
