Charl Schwartzel won The Masters yesterday by scoring a birdie on the last four holes of the back nine to secure a sole possession of the lead and win his first major.
Unfortunately for some of us, that means Tiger Woods fell short. Woods began the day seven back of the lead, but it was Rory Mcllroy, who’s plus eight for the day opened up the gates for about ten other golfers who all finished within two strokes of the lead.
At one point in the day, Woods was the sole leader, but it didn’t last long, as she missed a couple easy putts that could have won him his fifth green jacket.
For the South African born Schwartzel, it was just one of those days. His chip in birdie on the first hole, and his eagle on three were a tell tale sign that the ball was going to roll his way. It wasn’t until hole 15 where people started talking his name, but by his birdie putt on eighteen, they were sizing him up for the jacket.
Congrats to Charl Schwartzel!
