Charl Schwartzel wins Masters

Charl Schwartzel became the 75th champion of the Masters on Sunday, finishing with four straight birdies to win 6-under 66, MSNBC reported.

Schwartzel, who is from South Africa, came up from behind in the final round to beat a group of contenders, including Rory McIlroy, who held a 4-shot lead going into the final round but ended up bogeying his way to being 10-shots behind Schwartzel, the Los Angeles Times said.

McIlroy ended up receiving almost more media attention than the winner Schwartzel, mostly because of his boyish demeanor (McIlroy is only 21) and the seemingly obvious fact that he was spooked by Tiger Woods. "This golf course can bait you into being too aggressive," Woods said. "That's what happened to Rory out there."
