VIDEO: Charl Schwartzel Accepts Green Jacket At Masters Tournament Ceremony

2011 Masters Tournament winner Charl Schwartzel became the latest to be presented with golf's most-treasured prize that isn't tons of money: the green jacket. After accepting the honor inside Butler Cabin from previous winner Phil Mickelson and Augusta National Golf Club chairman Billy Payne, the party traveled outside to do the whole thing all over:

In case you can't see the video: Mickelson placed the jacket on the South African champ's shoulders, everybody clapped, and Payne handed Schwartzel a microphone. He expressed gratitude to Payne and touted the quality of Augusta's course before thanking his parents, wife, and caddy, the Augusta crowd, his sponsors, and so forth. 

Kinda hard to make out all of what he said, as his speaking voice kind of reminds me of Ricky Bobby at the beginning of Talladega Nights as far as volume goes. Definitely don't think he has any reason to care what I think about his speaking voice.
