Masters rookie Charl Schwartzel's lack of experience at the Masters Golf Tournament proved no disadvantage as he put on his green jacket post tournament win.
Schwartzel sealed his win on the back nine Sunday afternoon. On the 18th hole he sank a birdie putt to confirm his victory. He was 14-under for the tournament.
Jason Day and Adam Scott tied for second at 12-under and Tiger Woods, Luke Donald, and Geoff Ogilvy tied for fourth, four shots behind Schwartzel.
This was the 26-year-old South African's first major championship title in his career.
Fans thought they were going to see some Tiger magic near the end, but Schwartzel's performance on the last two holes was too difficult for opponents to compete with.
