Charl Schwartzel Was Simply On Sunday
Charl Schwartzel won the 2011 Masters with a final round rally on Sunday in which he shot a 66 to win by two strokes. Schwartzel didn’t just luck into the win thanks to Rory McIlroy’s disappointing collapse, he seized the day.
The 26-year-old South African birdied the final four holes of the round and sunk his last putt to seal the Green Jacket when he could have easily two-putted to victory. But that was only part of what made his final round so impressive.
Perhaps his most amazing shot of the day came on three when he eagled the hole with perfect spin on his iron from 108 yards away. Even before that, you could tell it was Schwartzel’s day when he sunk his birdie putt on the first hole making it from the rough. Here are both of those shots in case you missed em:
After seeing those shots, and coupling them with his birdies to close out the round, there is little doubt he earned the win. What a spectacular round. Now let’s go eat some Schwartzel.
