Charl Schwartzel Ascends Masters Leaderboard, Enters Clubhouse In Tie For Second

On Saturday, Charl Schwartzel has made his presence known on the Masters leaderboard. The South African, having just completed a terrific third round, heads into the clubhouse in a tie for second place.

On the front nine, Schwartzel birdied the second, third, seventh, and eighth holes, and headed to the back nine with a 3-under score for the day. He started the home stretch with a bogey on the 10th, but bounced back with birdies on the 12th and 15th.

Schwartzel, age 26, has never won a PGA Tour event. He has, however, placed respectively in majors before, as he finished in the top 20 in last year's U.S. Open, Open Championship, and PGA Championship. He finished in a tie for 30th in the 2010 Masters.
