Former Masters champion Angel Cabrera has been released from jail on parole after serving two years in custody over gender violence cases with two of his ex-girlfriends.

After psychological tests were carried out on the 53-year-old Judge Cristobal Late Los of Cordoba granted his release.

Cabrera won the 2007 US Open and 2009 Masters and was sentenced in July 2021 to two years imprisonment for threats and harassment of Cecilia Torres Mana between 2016 and 2018.


In November 2022, he was also on trial for threats and harassment against Micaela Escudero, another of his ex-girlfriends.

Cabrera pleaded guilty and was given two concurrent sentences totalling three years and ten months in prison.

Ms Torres Mana and Ms Escudero said Cabrera deserved to be released on parole, Judge Ros said.

Upon his release Cabrera told Golf Digest: “I just want to go home, be with my family and start a new phase of my life.”
