Two-time major winner Angel Cabrera was sentenced on Wednesday to two years in prison on charges he assaulted his former partner.

The Argentinian was convicted of assaulting, threatening and harassing Cecilia Torres Mana, his partner between 2016 and 2018.

Cabrera, whose trial took place in Cordoba, about 500 miles northwest of Buenos Aires, will serve his sentence immediately.

He is expected to face additional charges as two other former partners claimed they’d been assaulted as well.

“His situation is much more complex than this, he has other charges for which there are arrest warrants, too,” said prosecutor Laura Battistelli to a local TV channel.

“There are other victims.”

Cabrera was arrested by Interpol agents in Rio de Janeiro last January after he traveled to the U.S. without permission. He was then extradited from Brazil to Argentina so he could face trial.

The 51-year old claimed two majors in a 22-month span: the U.S. Open at Oakmont in June 2007 and the Masters in April 2009.
