Charl Schwartzel Wins 2011 Masters After Incredible Final Round At Augusta National Golf Club

If the pressure was getting to Charl Schwartzel down the stretch at Augusta National, it sure didn’t show. Schwartzel put on a clinic on the back nine on Sunday at The Masters, making a run to skyrocket up the leaderboard. By the time he reached No. 18, Schwartzel was in control of his own destiny, with the green jacket in his sights and a one-shot lead over the field.

Schwartzel placed his tee shot in an excellent spot on No. 18, landing his approach on the green and giving himself two putts to win. He didn’t need two. Schwartzel capped his round with a birdie putt to win the green jacket by two strokes after a final round 66 to get to 14-under for the tournament. Despite charges from Adam Scott, Jason Day and even Tiger Woods, it was Schwartzel who stood alone.

Scott and Day finished in a tie for second at 12-under. Tiger Woods, Luke Donald and Geoff Ogilvy shared fourth-place on the leaderboard at 10-under, four shots back of Schwartzel.
