PGA champ Angel Cabrera -- who won The Masters in 2009 -- has been extradited back to his home country of Argentina ... where he's set to face charges of attacking 3 different women.
The 51-year-old golf star -- nicknamed "El Pato" -- was arrested in Brazil back in January after officials say he was considered to be a fugitive of justice after bailing on a meeting with prosecutors.
The women accusing Cabrera include 2 ex-girlfriends and his ex-wife.
As we previously reported, one of the women accused the golfer of punching her in the face, making threats and trying to run her over with his car in '16.
Another woman, Cabrera's ex-wife, Silva Rivadero, also reportedly filed two charges against the golfer ... including assault and threats.
Cabrera is already in custody in Argentina -- and his trial is reportedly slated for July.
And, get this ... Cabrera's defense isn't that he didn't attack the women, it's that the incidents weren't really that bad.
SERIOUSLY, THAT'S HIS DEFENSE!
Cabrera's attorney, Carlos Hairabedian, told TN Todo Noticias, "The accusations come from long ago ... and he was not in jail because the facts attributed to him are insignificant. They are light injuries."
Cabrera won the U.S. Open over Tiger Woods in 2007 and the Green Jacket in 2009 ... and narrowly lost in a playoff against Adam Scott in the 2013 Masters.
