Romero Cabrera Head Argentine Field


Eduardo Romero and Angel Cabrera will be back in their home this week when the European Tour members play the inaugural Open de Argentina.
It will be the first time both have been in action since the EMC2 World Cup was held in Buenos Aires in December. It was an experience to remember when I played with Romero in the World Cup at Buenos Aires Golf Club, said Cabrera. The crowds were huge and cheered us all the way.
I will never forget that and I think the crowds will support this tournament. Playing on the European Tour in my home country has always been a big dream of mine, and to see it happen is very exciting.
Argentina is a co-sponsored, full-field tournament with 50 percent from the Association Argentina de Golf and the other 50 percent the European Tour. Last year, 54-year-old Vicente Fernandez won the 95th edition of the event by beating Romero in a playoff.
As well as a strong Argentine cast, former Ryder Cuppers Joakin Haeggman and Constantino Rocca are in the field, as well as Diego Borrego, Alex Cejka, Thomas Levet, Jonathan Lomas, Van Phillips and Mark Roe.
