Masters Results: Charl Schwartzel Wins 2011 Tournament At Augusta National

South Africa's Charl Schwartzel wound up atop the 2011 Masters Tournament leaderboard after a chaotic final round that saw Rory McIlroy plummet to a 7-over Sunday score, Tiger Woods make a charge, and as many as six players with a chance to win heading into the closing holes.

Schwartzel landed on the green with two strokes left, needing only par to assure himself of the green jacket, but was able to punch in a birdie from a considerable distance. He finished two swings ahead of Australians Jason Day and Adam Scott, with Scott appearing to be in the driver's seat heading into the final two holes.

Before Sunday, Schwartzel's best Masters finish was a 30th-place tie. He's been a pro since 2002, boasting seven professional wins. His best result in any PGA major was a 14th-place finish in the 2010 U.S. Open.
