When Charl Schwartzel birdied the 18th hole of his final round during the 2011 Masters Tournament at Augusta National Golf Club, he provided a fitting finish to one of the most thrilling closing days in recent major history. While the first three rounds of the Tournament had already provided some magical moments, it was the final day when the fireworks really started, as a host of players were poised to seize the opportunity to wear the most coveted prize in the sport, the Green Jacket.
The South African got off to the perfect start, chipping in for birdie at the first before holing his approach at the third for eagle. Meanwhile, Tiger Woods, aiming to win his fifth Masters, took just 31 shots to complete his first nine and looked as though he could win his first major since the 2008 U.S. Open. Eight players had at least a share of the lead over the closing holes including Adam Scott and Jason Day, two Australians who timed their ascent up the leader board to perfection, each producing some of the best golf of their careers when it mattered most.
There was also Northern Irelands Rory McIlroy, who held a four-shot lead heading into the final round. However, the 21-year-old saw his chances fade after a devastating triple-bogey on the 10th. In the end, no one could match Schwartzel and his red-hot putter. He birdied the last four holes to claim his first major in spectacular style on the 50th anniversary of fellow countryman and golfing legend Gary Players first victory at Augusta.
DVD EXTRAS INCLUDE: Honorary Starters Ceremony, Green Jacket Presentation and Press Conferences by Charl Schwartzel, Gary Player and Jack Nicklaus.
