Masters Tournament champion Angel Cabrera faces some serious travelling ahead of his appearance at the CASTELLÓ MASTERS Costa Azahar.

The Argentine is in Bermuda for the second round of the 36 hole four-man Grand Slam, but that has not stopped Cabrera taking an overnight flight across the Atlantic so that he can also compete in Spain.

The draw has been kind to the 40 year old - he is among the later starters and can therefore catch up on some sleep first.

Cabrera will be partnering Martin Kaymer on his return from two months out injured.

The 24 year old German broke toes in a go-kart crash in Arizona and during his lay-off has dropped from first to third on The Race to Dubai.

With new leader Lee Westwood and Rory McIlroy both resting before next week's Volvo World Match Play in Marbella, Kaymer actually has the chance to go back to the top on Sunday.

But he would have to win the €333,330 first prize for that and is not raising people's expectations.

"My foot has healed well and the doctor has told me that I am fit to play, to put pressure on the foot and play normally," said Kaymer.

"Obviously this is my first tournament back, so there I do not know exactly how I am going to feel after 72 holes, but I think that it will be all right.

"Hopefully I can get back to the form that I was in before the accident. If I can get back to that kind of form then I have a chance to win tournaments and The Race to Dubai itself.

"But I have to be patient and make sure that I am confident that my foot is 100 per cent this week."

Tournament host Sergio Garcia is also the defending champion on his home course. He partners 2006 Ryder Cup teammates Darren Clarke and José Maria Olazábal in the first two rounds, while opposing Vivendi Trophy captains Paul McGinley and Thomas Björn are partners as well and so are Ryder Cup Captain Colin Montgomerie and last year’s European Number One Robert Karlsson.
