Cabrera is a two-time major champion, winning the 2007 U.S. Open and 2009 Masters amongst 51 professional victories including titles on the PGA, European and Asian Tours.
He joins 2000 Masters Champion Vijay Singh and 2003 Masters Champion Mike Weir in the fourth edition of the Fiji International, tri-sanctioned for the first time by the PGA Tour of Australasia, European Tour and Asian Tour.
“I can’t wait to get to Fiji, I’ve heard about the amazing course there and I’m really looking forward to experiencing the famous Fijian hospitality for myself,” Cabrera said.
“I haven’t played in a European or Asian Tour event in some time, so it will be good to play alongside some of those guys again in Fiji.”
Coincidentally, Cabrera’s last win in an Asian Tour event came at the 2007 Barclays Singapore Open, one shot ahead of Singh who has re-designed the Natadola Bay Championship Golf Course, to be unveiled for the first time next week.
“Vijay is a terrific competitor and has a great mind for the game, I’m sure that will reflect in the changes he has made to his home course,” Cabrera added.
With Cabrera’s addition to the field, the Fiji International has a wealth of talent from all corners of the globe.
Angel Cabrera joins a stellar field which includes Vijay Singh, Mike Weir, Phachara Khongwatmai, Jeunghun Wang, Ryan Fox and Brett Rumford.
