Charl Schwartzel is no stranger to golf fans who have watched him on the European Tour – he won two of the first four events of the 2010 season (The Africa Open and the Joburg Open), and he’s won a total of five times on the Euro Tour. Charl is currently ranked #34 in the World Golf Rankings and #1 in the European Tour’s Race to Dubai. But this past weekend a majority of PGA Tour fans in the U.S. got their first glimpse of Charl at the WGC CA Championship where he finished second behind fellow South African Ernie Els.
In these two videos on Nike Golf’s YouTube channel we hear from Charl after rounds 3 and 4 of the WGC CA Championship. In the first video we hear about how his Nike Golf equipment helped him navigate the windy conditions in round 3. In the second video we hear about where he grew up in South Africa, what it was like to play with Ernie Els, how his 2010 PGA Tour schedule is shaping up and his excitement for his upcoming (and first) trip to The Masters, and most importantly how to correctly pronounce his name!
