US Open Stories, Cabrera 13th Hole




Angel Cabrera, former US Open and current Masters champ, during the Tuesday practice round, was dropping balls in the rough and practicing chipping them out. When he flubbed one, a fan called out some advice. Cabrera turned to the fan and mockingly offered his club as if to say “here, you try it!” The crowd loved it, and I was lucky to have just snapped the picture. This is not an uncommon type of fan-pro encounter at Bethpage, which has become famous for its New York Style Golf Fans.
