Angel Cabrera is seeking forgiveness as he readies for a comeback to the PGA tour post his prison release. The 54-year-old, convicted in 2021 for assault, threats, and harassment against former partner Cecilia Torres Mana, expressed deep regret. In an interview with Golf Digest, Cabrera acknowledged a significant mistake, attributing it to showing his worst side due to circumstances. He deeply regrets staining his reputation within the golf community and feels genuine disappointment in his actions.


“I refused to listen to anyone and did what I wanted, how I wanted and when I wanted.

That was wrong. I ask Micaela for forgiveness. I ask Celia for forgiveness. They had the bad luck of being with me when I was at my worst. I wasn’t the devil but I did bad things.

I am deeply embarrassed because I disappointed the people closest to me — and everyone who loves me through golf. Golf gave me everything, and I know I will never be able to repay the debt I owe this sport.”- Cabrera said, as quoted by usnews.com!

Angel Cabrera: I've made serious mistakes

Aware that he made a big mistake, Cabrera is ready to show the true version of himself and correct the mistakes. He is also happy to have returned to his greatest love: golf. His goal is to train hard and show his qualities. We will see how much Angel can do at this moment.

“I've made serious mistakes, but I've also paid my debts,” he said. “I'm going to work as hard as I can to clean up my image. I want to recover the stature I had as an athlete. Golf is everything to me. It's my life. I have to continue.”

The reactions to his return are different. While there are those who are happy about it, there are also those who feel that Cabrera does not deserve to play golf again.
