Schwartzel wins the Masters after a wild day

Apr 10, 2011 7:29:00 PM - thestate.com
Charl Schwartzel won the Masters by two strokes over Adam Scott and Jason Day after a wild final day at Augusta National.

Eight players held at least a share of the lead Sunday, but it was the 26-year-old South African who turned in one of the great finishing performances in major championship history.

Schwartzel closed with four straight birdies, including a 20-footer at the final hole to wrap up a 6-under 66. He finished 14-under 274, enough to deny Australia its first green jacket.

Scott shot a 67 and Day finished with two straight birdies for a 68, leaving both Aussies at 276. This remain the only major tournament never won by a golfer from Down Under.

"It was just such an exciting day," Schwartzel said. "There were so many roars and the atmosphere out there was just incredible.
