Different setting, same result - Charl Schwartzel celebrates at the Alfred Dunhill Championship
Malelane, South Africa - For the second time in 7 days, Charl Schwartzel blitzed an
international field by a double digit margin . . . this time by 12 at the Alfred Dunhill
Championship at Leopard Creek Country Club.The South African entered Sunday with a
ten shot lead, his final round 69 pushed the final tally to 12 (last week in Thailand he won
by 11) and a score of -24 with rounds of 67-64-64-69 = 264.The win was Schwartzel's
eighth European Tour victory.
Schwartzel was somewhat surprised by his two week romp. ""That doesn't happen often,"
he said. "Normally after a win by such a big margin, it's hard to put up the same show the
next week. It's satisfying to continue that form and play the same sort of golf. I keep talking
about consistency, and mine is back where I like it to be."
Kristoffer Broberg was secong at -12, Gregory Bourdy, Scott Jamieson, Garth Mulroy, and
Andy Sullivan all finished a "baker's dozen" behind the 2011 Masters Champion.
A rare feat occurred during the championship, Keith Horne aced the par 3 - 12th hole both
Friday & Saturday.
Sergio celebrates his second win of 2012, his final round 61 sealed the deal in Malaysia.

Tour history.Garcia finished at 18 under at Horizon Hills Golf Club in the rain shortened Asian
Tour finale in Johor.It was a another solid year for the Spaniard, who also won at the Wyndham
Championship on the PGA Tour.
American Jonathan Moore also shot 61, and finished second, Thailand's Thongchai Jaidee
was third at 14 under after a 65.
