WATCH: Former Augusta champ Cabrera's ace raises a smile ahead of Masters week

Updated: 

What better way to celebrate the eve of Masters week than a hole in one from one of the tournament's former champions?

Angel Cabrera donned the famous green jacket in 2009, following a three-way play-off involving Chad Campbell and Kenny Perry.

With the world of golf set to embark on its annual pilgrimage to Augusta for the start of the 2017 edition on Thursday, Cabrera rolled back the years with an ace at the Shell Houston Open on Sunday.

The Argentinian finished off his round by holing from the tee at the par-three ninth to end the tournament on four under par and head to Georgia with a spring in his step.
