27-year-old South African, Charl Schwartzel has made a significant impact on the world circuit since turning pro back in 2002. With eight tournament victories so far in his short career, Schwartzel is fulfilling the potential he showed throughout a dominant amateur career back home in South Africa. 2011 was a landmark year for Schwartzel, joining the PGA Tour and recording his first major championship title, winning the 2011 Masters at Augusta, Georgia. Schwartzel also recorded career-best finishes at the 2011 U.S. Open and at the 2011 PGA Championship, finishing fourth in the Race to Dubai. A brief look at Charl Schwartzel's 'what's in the bag?' reveals the South African opts for Nike golf clubs as part of his sponsorship with the American manufacturer.
