Nike Golf's Schwartzel cruises to stunning victory in Thailand

Published:

Former Masters champion Charl Schwartzel shot four rounds in the 60s as he eased to an 11-stroke victory at the Thailand Open, his first win since claiming the Green Jacket at Augusta in 2011.

The South African led from start to finish, eventually ending on 25-under-par with Bubba Watson and Thai starlet Thitiphun Chuayprakong finishing in a tie for second spot.

The South African's victory meant he went one better than this time last year, when he finished seven strokes behind winner Lee Westwood.

Schwartzel - who now has nine career titles to his name - relied on a wide range of Nike Golf equipment to get the job done, including the VR Pro Ltd driver and fairway woods, as well as the VR Pro Blade irons.

He used Nike's Method 001 putter in the bag, as well as VR Pro wedges.
