Latin Americans practice separated, but then enjoy together

The Latin Americans Angel Cabrera, Jhonattan Vegas, and Joaquín Niemann did not miss the opportunity to practice for the last time before the start of Masters. A light rain at dawn moistened the field and from early they went out to adjust details and take the last notes. The Argentine Cabrera did it with the Spaniards Rafa Cabrera Bello and José María Olazabal, and the Venezuelan Vegas, with the Australian Adam Scott. Finally, Joaquin Niemann, the Chilean fan, practiced with the Spanish and defending champion Sergio García and the South African Brendan Grace.

Cabrera still can not find a way to tame his short game. The coach of the Cordovan, Charlie Epps, explained that it will not be easy to recover the touch. "We have worked hard and will continue to do so, but it is difficult to fine-tune the sensitivity". He also said that the Argentine's long game is solid. But it will not be ideal to face the difficulty that this court presents, on the greens and in the surroundings, with that important part of the game weakened. You can have hope, however, and imagine that the "Duck" will light up as soon as the competition begins. Well different is the case of Venezuelan Vegas. After his practice lap he was in a good mood and confident. "I have never arrived so well prepared for a Masters. This is my third presentation and I feel confident to play well. We have been working since Monday with a game plan, fairways, greens and putting putts ... as simple as that ".

For his part, the Chilean Niemann returned to have a day of practice dreamed in the company of the defending champion, Sergio García. At the end of their round they took good time to share their impressions for the start of the tournament. "Sergio has helped me a lot in this last time. We played together at the US Open, played a couple of days there also in Texas and their support was important. I feel very comfortable and confident, and I think that if I play good golf I can do very well on this court. I already have the strategy well-armed with my caddy. You have to see where they put the flags and decide in which holes to attack and in which to be patient, "he said.

At the same time Garcia had very complimentary words about Niemann, especially for the memory of his first Masters as an amateur that was also the beginning of his career as a professional, as the Chilean amateur is doing now. "I also played my first Masters as a 19 year old fan as he is going to do and that is a very nice memory. The most important thing for him is to enjoy this moment, which is a nice week. And if he plays well and can have a good result, well, better; and if not enjoy it equally.
