Imprisoned Masters champ to face second trial for ‘gender violence’

Published

on

As first reported by CBA24n, Angel Cabrera is set to stand trial once again this December.

The 2009 Masters champion was charged with threatening, assaulting and harassing former partner Cecilia Torres Mana in July of 2021 and is currently serving two years in Argentina for his conviction.

Since that case has concluded, there have been more allegations against the 52-year-old. Torres Mana is claiming that Cabrera had violated his restraining order against her on “multiple occasions.”

Now, a second accuser, Micaela Teresa Escudero, is claiming that she faced “coercion,” “coercion and threat” and “minor injuries” from Cabrera as well.

The former golfer is serving his time at Carcel de Bouwer, which is an infamous prison known as “El Penal del Infierno” or the “Prison of Hell.”

The trial is set to begin on December 1.

    No man, Cabrera is a dirt bag and beats woman. This means small peni issues.

Checking out how DAPCEP, PXG teach science and engineering through golf

Published

on

We all know that the PGA Tour is all about giving back to communities. Most of us don’t get to see where that money, time, and resources go, but I was invited by PXG to witness firsthand just one of the many programs. DAPCEP is a nonprofit organization in Detroit that offers students that ability to further their studies in fields they are interested in. PXG and DAPCEP joined forces during the Rocket Mortgage Classic to let students who are interesting in science, physics, and engineering to learn more about those subject through the game of golf.

CAPCEP students’ eyes were wide as they took in all of the golf equipment, putting greens, and fitting bays around the store. The first few minutes were filled with exploring the location and taking in everything it had to offer.

The morning was kicked off with introductions and PXG explaining how they are an engineering company that makes golf clubs. The first speaker was Caleb Kroloff, Senior R&D Engineer at PXG, and he talked a little about his path to becoming and engineer and why he loved the field so much. His mention of heading to college with no clear plan of what he would do for a career hit home with many of the students. Caleb also talked about how you can chase and research careers in passions or interests that you might have. He gave examples like looking at different sports and how someone has to design the materials and components that go into sports equipment. Engineering and problem solving are areas that have endless opportunities, if you just look a little deeper.

PXG had set up a few stations in the store that focuses on different educational subjects that required math and physics. Inside one of the fitting bays was a station that focused on full shot ball and clubbed speeds. Smash factor was not a term that any of these students were familiar with, but the math to calculate it was easy to learn. It was fun to see these young minds start asking questions about golf shots and how different variables affected the flight.

The next station focused on putting and the physics that face angle and speed had on putts. This station also allowed the students to try their hand at putting, while getting tips on how to hold a putter and getting to design their own alignment markings. The final station was built to show how C.O.R. was tested and calculated to ensure correct energy transfer off the face of a club. This again took a foreign concept and made it an easy problem to solve through math.

After the STEM learning at PXG all of the students went down to the Rocket Mortgage Classic at the Detroit Country Club to watch the Wednesday practice round from the VIP box behind the 18th green. Not only did the students get a VIP tour of the PXG tour truck, they also got to meet a few celebrities as well. Hall of Fame running back Barry Sanders and tour player Cameron Tringale both stopped by to meet these students and talk about education and opportunity. Out on the course major winner Zach Johnson stepped under the ropes to greet and take photos with these students.

By the end of the day you could see that some of the students really had grown and appreciation for the game of golf. So many also had their minds open to new goals and opportunities to chase. It was a great day to take it all in and enjoy seeing just a small amount of what partnerships like DAPCEP and PXG can do in communities across the country.

WOTW: Sean Crocker’s Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra 150M Golf Edition

Published

on

Week number two on the PGA Tour where the winner wasn’t wearing a watch, so we head over to Scotland where Sean Crocker blessed us with his Omega! Sean won the Hero Open with a 1 stroke victory over Eddie Pepperell. Sean celebrated his first DP World Tour win with his caddie while wearing an Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra 150M Golf Edition on his wrist.

WOTW Specs:

Limited: No
Date: 2017 – Current

Power Reserve: 60 Hours
Glass: Saphire Crystal
Waterproof: 150 Meters

Price: $5,400 (~$4,000)

Omega has been making precision timepieces since 1848 when the company was founded. They have had the privilege of making watches for the British Royal Flying Corps as well as being the official timing brand for the Olympic Games. The first Seamaster was introduced in 1948 and since then has been one of the most popular lines in the Omega catalog. The first prototypes were built in 1932 as dive watches for famous diver, Yves Le Prieur. The Aqua Terra was introduced in 2002 as a watch you could wear under the ocean or with a suit to the office. Sean’s Seamaster Aqua Terra 150M is a the Golf Edition that was released in 2017 with the green accents.

Omega’s Seamaster Aqua Terra 150M is a 41mm watch with a case made from solid stainless steel. The right side of the case features the screw-down crown but no crown guards, interesting for a dive watch. The stainless steel caseback threads into the case and does feature a large sapphire crystal viewing window to view the mechanical movement inside. The bezel on the case is made from solid stainless steel and is polished to a mirror-like finish. The dial on Sean’s Seamaster is finished in black and features horizontal lines that are meant to mimic teak planks on ships. Around the dial are triangular hour markers, filled with luminescent material, that glow for easy reading in low light. The date window sits at the 6 o’clock position and the dial features green markings and second hand, showing off the golf influence.

Inside the Seamseter is a Caliber 8900 self-winding, automatic movement designed by Omega. The 8900 is the first Omega movement to be METAS certified as a Master Chronometer. METAS is the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology and have more stringent certification methods than the traditional, and more famous, COSC chronometer certification. Omega’s Co-Axial escapement was engineered to better handle the energy transfer and make the movement more precise. Omega designed the 8900 to withstand magnetic fields up to 15,000 Gaus due to parts like the silicon balance spring. The twin barrels are mounted in series and offer the wearer about 60 hours of power reserve. The winding rotor, along with other parts of the movement, is finished with Geneva waves for a more luxurious look.

There are many options for straps and bracelets with the Aqua Terra series of Seamasters and the Golf Edition comes with a black and green Nato strap. The Nato strap is made from nylon and comes together with a stainless steel pin buckle. There is also a Golf Edition done in blue and orange if that is more your style. This Gold Edition Seamaster retails for $5,400 but the price is a little softer on the secondary market. You can pick one up from a grey market dealer for around $4,000 currently.
