South African Charl Schwartzel Wins The US Masters

South Africa has produced yet another golf major winner.

New boy on the block Charl Schwartzel played like a champion at Augusta, closing with four birdies in succession to capture a two-shot victory in the US Masters over Australia’s Jason Day and Adam Scott on Sunday.

Check out 1:18 for the money shot.

The South African’s four-round total was 14-under-par 274, made up of rounds of 69, 71, 68, and a closing six-under-par 66.

His win came 50 years to the day after the legendary Gary Player became the first non-American to don the green jacket.

Player followed the event on television and posted his congratulations to Schwartzel on Twitter:

“I am absolutely delighted for Charl and South Africa. Congratulations and very well done to him. That is how you finish like a champion!”
