A recap of Sunday’s final round of the Masters:
Charl Schwartzel birdied the final four holes — the first time that has been done in Masters history — to become the third South African to win the green jacket. It came 50 years after fellow South African Gary Player’s historic breakthrough in the event. He finished 14 under, two strokes better than a pair of Australians, Adam Scott and Jason Day.
What does it mean?
For the the second time since the Masters started in 1934, all four of golf’s majors are in the hands of an international player.
Spain’s Jose Maria Olazabal (Masters), South Africa’s Ernie Els (U.S. Open) and Zimbabwe’s Nick Price (British Open and PGA Championship) were the winners in 1994.
The current holders are now South Africa’s Schwartzel (Masters), Northern Ireland’s Graeme McDowell (U.S. Open), South Africa’s Louis Oosthuizen and Germany’s Martin Kaymer (PGA Championship).
