Charl Schwartzel

Schwartzel enjoyed a dominant junior amateur career in South Africa, and won amateur events in other countries, too, including the 2002 Indian Amateur and English Open Stroke Play Championships. He played for South Africa at the 2002 Eisenhower Trophy. Schwartzel turned professional at age 18 and qualified for the European Tour late that year, the second-youngest South African golfer to do so, after Dale Hayes.
Schwartzel will be remembered in major championship folklore as the only player to finish a major with four consecutive birdies to win. He accomplished that feat during his two-stroke victory at the 2011 Masters. Became the first Masters champion to birdie the final four holes, and the first to play the final four holes in four under par since Jack Nicklaus did so in 1986. He became the seventh major championship winner from South Africa, the third to win the Masters. His victory at Augusta National came exactly 50 years to the day after countryman Gary Player's first Masters win. Player was the first international winner of the Masters in 1961.
Schwartzel entered the final round of the 2011 Masters four strokes behind Rory McIlroy but stormed back in the largest come-from-behind win at the Masters since Nick Faldo recovered from six down to defeat Greg Norman in 1996. Schwartzel triumphed on a day when as many as five players shared the lead at one point. His winning score, 14-under-par 274, was the lowest by an international champion at the Masters and equaled the sixth-lowest of all time. He won earlier that year at the 2011 Joburg Open. He had a stellar 2010, winning his first two starts of the year, the Africa Open and the Joburg Open. Successfully defended his title in the latter a year later, winning by four shots. Only the second player to win three consecutive Sunshine Tour Order of Merit titles between 2005 (the year he won his first European Tour title, the Dunhill Championship, on home soil) and '07.
Schwartzel continues a fine family tradition of golfers. His father, George, was a successful amateur before turning professional, and his brother, Adrian, who caddies for his older sibling on occasions, is making a name for himself on the South African circuit.
He overcame illness to win the inaugural Madrid Masters in 2008, having considered withdrawing before the second round due to a virus and a shoulder injury. A phone call to his father changed his mind. He shot 64 in the second round and ultimately won by three strokes. It was his second victory in the Spanish capital following his win at the 2007 Open de Espana. At the time, he became the third-youngest player to secure his European Tour card through Qualifying School at the age of 18 years, 81 days. Joined the PGA Tour in 2011 based on his non-member earnings in 2010. Has earned his private pilot's license. Enjoys hunting and cars. Played in 2011, '13, '15 and '17 Presidents Cup.

In the pro-am of Valspar, one of his partners hit a shot that struck Schwartzel in the left wrist and ever since the injury seemed to get worst. It was so bad that it forced him to withdraw from the PGA Championship. Right before the U.S. Open Schwartzel announced that he would take the rest of 2019 off to rest the wrist and hope it heals.
