Excerpt: Ángel Cabrera (pronounced in English) (born 12 September 1969) is an Argentine professional golfer who plays on both the European Tour and PGA Tour. He is known affectionately as "El Pato" in Spanish or in English as "The duck" for his waddling gait. He is a former U.S. Open champion and Masters champion. He is the first Argentine to win either The Masters or the U.S. Open. Cabrera was born in Córdoba, Argentina. His father, Miguel, was a handyman and his mother worked as a maid.
