2011 Masters

Recap and Scores for the 2011 Masters Tournament

Charl Schwartzel birdied his last four holes to close with a 66 and win the 2011 Masters Tournament by two strokes.

It was a wild final round, with third-round leader Rory McIlroy falling apart; Tiger Woods charging; Adam Scott, Jason Day and Geoff Ogilvy each trying to become the first Australian to win The Masters. Luke Donald, 2009 Masters winner Angel Cabrera and K.J. Choi had chances, too, and were in it until very late.

McIlroy had a 4-stroke lead after three rounds, with Schwartzel among those in second. But McIlroy started slow before completely collapsing with a triple-bogey on No. 10 that was even worse than it sounds. He visited parts of Augusta National never before seen on television; then McIlroy followed with a bogey and a double-bogey. He finished with an 80 and tied for 15th.

Meanwhile, Woods had blistered the front nine with a 5-under 31, reaching 10-under and sharing the lead at various points on the back nine. And Woods hit some great shots on the back nine, but let several opportunities slip away and couldn't get his score any lower. He finished at 278, tied for fourth.

Tied with Woods in fourth was Ogilvy, the 2006 U.S. Open winner, who, like Woods, started the day seven strokes off the lead and closed with a 67.

As noted, no Australian through the 2011 Masters had ever won this tournament. Scott and Day, playing together in the third-to-last group, shot 68 and 67 respectively to finish at 12-under 276.

Schwartzel, meanwhile, was steady all day. And then he reached the 15th hole and went on his closing run of four straight birdies. As he stood on the final tee, Schwartzel held a 1-stroke lead. Nerves? Not from this South African, not on this day. He hit a great drive, an excellent approach, and then closed out the victory with a birdie.
