2009 Masters champion, Angel Cabrera, who was recently released from prison, is currently not listed in the upcoming Masters tournament field at Augusta National.

Since the two-time major winner was released from prison last year after serving a sentence for domestic assault, theft and illegal intimidation towards a partner, he has been keen to resume his playing career and has been cleared to make his PGA Tour return.

The Argentinian is eligible for the Masters this April courtesy of his victory in 2009 where he edged out Kenny Perry.

However, Cabrera has been listed in the category of Past Champions Not Playing alongside the likes of Gary Player, Jack Nicklaus, Tom Watson, Ian Woosnam, Ben Crenshaw and Larry Mize.

Another name which will be added to that rather illustrious list next year will be Bernhard Langer who announced yesterday that the 2024 Masters will be his last appearance as a player.

The two-time green jacker winner said: “It’s going to be my last Masters this year, I have already decided on that and it will probably be my last US Open unless some miracle happens in the future,” said the 66-year-old.

“It’s exciting but I am aware that I will be hitting 3-irons and 2-hybrids when the guys are hitting nine irons into the green and that’s tough to compete against but that’s a challenge and I don’t shy away from challenges.”
