Charl Schwartzel logged two starts on the 2014-15 PGA TOUR season before the holiday break.
The South African tied for 19th at the CIMB Classic, and then shared 64th at the no-cut WGC-HSBC Champions. That places him in the 115th spot in the FedExCup standings. If history is any indicator, American fans can expect to see Schwartzel pick up his PGA TOUR schedule at Riviera CC in the Northern Trust Open. He has an excellent record in that event, so he could quickly crack fantasy lineups upon his arrival. Nov 28 - 8:33 PM

Charl Schwartzel turns his attention to Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club for this week's CIMB Classic.

The South African finished tied for 15th in Australia last week at the ISPS HANDA Perth International. It was a good bounce-back from the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship but still a tad disappointing given his cachet and weak strength of field. Schwartzel has finished top 15 in five of his last 10 events worldwide, and remains a strong weekly start in any format.

Charl Schwartzel will get introduced to Cherry Hills Country Club at this week's BMW Championship.

The South African enters the week ranked 52nd in the FedExCup standings. Only the top 30 advance to next week's TOUR Championship, so Schwartzel has a tall task ahead of him. With eight top 15s on the season, he's more than capable of contending. Gamers should not hesitate to pick the South African this week, as his motivation will be elevated and his upside is unlimited.

Charl Schwartzel conjured up a 5-under-par 32-34=66 in the final round of the PGA Championship and is the first to post 9-under 275.

Schwartzel circled seven birdies and squared two bogeys on his jaunt around Valhalla Golf Club. While some of his early birdies were from close-range, the final four were all noteworthy. He dropped them from 18'8", 19'5", 23'11" and 12'9" on the eighth, 10th, 11th and 18th holes. The South African gained well over two strokes with his flat stick on the round. While it is a virtual certainty that his clubhouse lead will not stand the test of time, this will go in the books as another solid finish in a major championship.

Charl Schwartzel spun a 6-under-par 32-32=64 in the final round of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational to end the week safely inside the top 10 at 9-under 271.

The South African circled five birdies and an eagle on his final lap around Firestone CC, handing back just one bogey. His 17'8" eagle at the par-5 second was joined by a 13'11" birdie at the par-3 15th for his highlights. While he is the clubhouse leader, there is essentially zero chance that he will hang on for his second victory in a PGA TOUR sanctioned event.
Aug 3 - 6:21 PM

Charl Schwartzel backed up his opening 65 at the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational with a 1-under-par 33-36=69 to post 6-under 134 at the midpoint.

Schwartzel opened birdie-par-birdie at Firestone today, but he played his last 15 holes in 1-over with one birdie wiped away by two bogeys. All of those deviations from par occurred on par 4s. He hit 13 greens in regulation, but didn't sink anything from outside 10 feet. In fact, he whiffed on three looks inside that range. He's currently two strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead, but Sergio Garcia is about to set a higher bar. The Spaniard is two strokes clear of the field as he plays his 36th hole.
Aug 1 - 6:01 PM

Charl Schwartzel turned in a 5-under-par 34-31=65 for his opening round of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational, good for a share of the clubhouse lead.

The South African is chasing his first top 20 in what is his sixth start at Firestone. He split six (of 14) fairways and only 11 greens in regulation today, but limited the damage to a lone bogey-5 at the first hole. Elsewhere, he circled six birdies, five of which following the bogey on his inward nine. Three measured 10-17 feet. Schwartzel has been alternating solid play with forgettable results for nearly three months. Today's success extends the pattern as he's coming off a T43 in Canada.
Jul 31 - 2:23 PM

Charl Schwartzel opened the RBC Canadian Open with a 4-under-par 33-33=66, finishing two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

This is just his 13th start of the season, but he's 76th in FedExCup points on the shoulders of four top 10s. Yet, today's aggregate is his lowest of the season. Schwartzel went 6-for-12 in birdie opportunities at Royal Montreal, the highlight dropping in from 26'4" at the par-3 13th hole. He also poured in a par save from 11'7" at 17. He entered riding an unusual pattern of top 20s in every other of his last nine starts with a T48 and three missed cuts sprinkled in between. With today's effort on the heels of a T7 at The Open Championship, he's projected to break that mold.
Jul 24 - 5:57 PM

Charl Schwartzel fired a bogey-free 5-under-par 34-33=67 in the final round of The Open Championship to record his first top-10 finish in this event.

Schwartzel grabbed just two birdies over his first 14 holes, but quickly added to that tally with birdies on the par-3 15th and par-5 16th and 18th. It all added up to an 11-under 277. He's showed some prowess on the links in years past, thrice cracking the top 20, and has finally cashed in with a notable finish.
Jul 20 - 12:44 PM

Charl Schwartzel could only muster an even-par 33-39=72 in the third round of The Open Championship and remains at 6-under 210.

The South African looked like a contender early, picking up birdies on the fourth through sixth holes after opening with three consecutive pars. He couldn't keep the momentum flowing, as he surrendered four bogeys to just one birdie on the rest of his navigation of Hoylake. He is likely too far back to contend for the win, but a top 10 is in his future with a solid final round.
Jul 19 - 10:34 AM

Charl Schwartzel enjoyed a 5-under-par 33-34=67 with eight birdies in his second round of The Open Championship.

Schwartzel posted 6-under 138 at the break, six strokes adrift of overnight leader Rory McIlroy. The South African circled eight birdies today at Royal Liverpool, five of which on his inward nine. He closed birdie-birdie-birdie for the second consecutive day. He's played the quartet of par 5s in bogey-free 7-under. The soon-to-be 30-year-old (Aug. 31) is already a major champion, of course, but he's still chasing his first top 10 in 10 tries at The Open.
Jul 18 - 2:24 PM

Charl Schwartzel tied for 22nd place in 2006 at Royal Liverpool and returns for another chance this week at the 143rd Open Championship.

The South African has been very hit-or-miss in his nine Open Championship appearances. He's missed the cut in five, but finished 22nd place or better in the four cuts made. After posting 18 worldwide podium finishes from 2010 to 2013, Schwartzel is still searching for his first of 2014. Given his 2006 performance at this venue, the South African is a very nice pick this week, and will likely be off-the-radar for many gamers.
Jul 15 - 12:43 PM

Charl Schwartzel signed for an even-par 38-34=72 following his final round of the Memorial.

Schwartzel regressed a bit today, but he'll leave town with his third top 10 in 10 starts this season. He went 4-for-12 in par breakers, including a hole-out from just inside 61 feet after taking a drop for rinsing his approach into the par-5 11th. However, he offset with two bogeys and a double to post 8-under 280, five strokes off the pace of the 72-hole clubhouse leader, Kevin Na. The South African will take a week off before buckling in for the U.S. Open.
Jun 1 - 5:43 PM

Charl Schwartzel spun a 5-under-par 34-33=67 in the third round of the Memorial Tournament to assume the clubhouse lead at 8-under 208.

Schwartzel picked up seven birdies on his trot around Muirfield Village, handing back two bogeys including a messy three-putt bogey at the par-5 15th. Among the notables were a 25'1" birdie at the par-4 second, a 13-footer at the par-4 sixth and a 16'2" birdie at the par-3 16th to the difficult pin location on the far left side of the green. His ball-striking was on point, splitting 10 of 14 fairways and landing 15 GIR. The South African entered this week ranked 82nd in the FedExCup standings.
May 31 - 3:09 PM

Charl Schwartzel twirled a 3-under-par 34-33=67 in the final round of the HP Byron Nelson Championship to end the tournament at 6-under 274.

The South African carded three straight rounds of 3-under 67 after a disappointing opener of 3-over 73. Schwartzel landed 13 greens in regulation today but converted on just five of them. Once this one goes in the books it will be his 19th top 25 in his last 28 PGA TOUR events.
