It appears that Angel Cabrera has returned to the golf course, after being released from prison earlier this month.

The 53-year-old served 30 months behind bars, the majority of which was in Argentina’s most infamous prison. The two-time major champion was serving time in custody for multiple counts of assault against two ex-girlfriends, a sentence which started in 2021.

In November 2022, Cabrera was convicted of a second assault and was sentenced to a further 28 months in prison, a sentence which was to run alongside his previous conviction.

He was released on parole at the start of August.

Judge Cristobal Laje Ros, who released the 2007 US Open champion, said: “Cabrera has internalised the damaging mistakes he made. He regrets it and will return to his home with his family.”

However, it now looks like he’s back playing golf. In a video posted to Twitter by Handicap 54, the 2009 Masters champion was seen at El Terron Golf Club in Argentina.

In a series of clips, the Argentinian is seen hitting drivers on the golf course, as well as on the driving range of the club in his home country.

Following his release from prison, the former world No.9 provided a statement to Golf Digest via his manager Manuel Tagle, saying he wants to go home, be with his family and start a new phase of his life.

Although Cabrera is back on the golf course, it’s not clear whether he will be pursuing a return to the professional game.

Under normal circumstances, Cabrera would be invited to the first major of the year at Augusta National for the rest of his career. Whether that will be the case with the Argentine remains to be seen.
