Charl Schwartzel wins the Tshwane Open

No drama eight shot victory…

Charl Schwartzel wins the Tshwane Open

Charl wins one of those individual 'teaball' devices. This one was designed for a giant.

Charl Schwartzel has won his 11th European Tour title at the Tshwane Open, with a massively comfortable, no-drama, eight shot victory. And with the victory won a magnificent tea-strainer.

He only took a single shot lead into the final day, but boy did he step it up a gear or three. He shot a magnificent 63, which included seven birdies and an eagle to finish at 16 under for the championship. No one could hold onto his tail.

Said Charl:  “I played well the whole week, today was a bit iffy at stages, but the difference was I putted really well.”

There’s nothing iffy about a 63 to our mind!

“I spent a lot of hours on the practice greens in the last few days and it was a good time to find something.”

With just 20 players finishing under-par for the tournament, Schwartzel said it reflected well on how tough a challenge the Pretoria Country Club course presented.

“I’ve had some great success here. I’ve always liked this course... now I like it even better. It was in great shape and even though it’s old, it makes you think a lot and gives you a lot of options. It’s a big test.”

Denmark's Jeff Winther took second place with a 64, which was the best ever finish for the rookie.

This was the last South African European Tour event of the season.
