VIDEO: Charl Schwartzel's Green Jacket Ceremony After 2011 Masters Win

Charl Schwartzel took home the 2011 Masters Tournament victory, shooting a blazing 66 that included four straight birdies to close out the round. The South African began his round with an eagle as well, going 14-under for the event as a whole to take the first major victory of his career.

Jim Nantz and Billy Payne gathered to greet Hideki Matsuyama, the event's best-scoring amateur, defending champion Phil Mickelson, and the new winner. Mickelson, clad in his own green jacket, listened as Hideki's translator shared a message on what playing well at Augusta National may have meant to Japanese sports fans working to recover from the March 2011 Pacific tsunami.

Following the Butler Cabin interview, the group headed outside for the traditional green jacket ceremony in front of the gathered crowd (via ESPN).

Schwartzel, the third South African to win the Masters after Gary Player and Trevor Immelman, surged past likewise excellent rounds by Jason Day, Tiger Woods, and others, taking advantage of a punishing back nine by long-time leader Rory McIlroy.
