Charl Schwartzel Wins The Masters On Wild Day

AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — Charl Schwartzel has won the Masters by two strokes over Adam Scott and Jason Day after a wild final day at Augusta National.

The 26-year-old South African closed with four straight birdies, making 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.

It wasn’t enough to hold off Schwartzel, who gives South Africa another major champion.

Tiger Woods was in a group at 278, failing to capitalize after shooting 31 on the front side.

The 54-hole leader, Rory McIlroy, fell apart on the final day.

    Tiger is history.Started off really fast in his proffesion,but is obviously slowing down and joining the rest of the field off average finishers.Maybe he should lay off the porn star girls.
