Charl Schwartzel waited until the last possible minute to win the Valspar Championship Sunday evening.
Schwartzel, down five strokes coming into the day, birdied three of the final six holes to force third-round leader Bill Haas into extra holes, then won on the first playoff hole.
Schwartzel, a 31-year-old golfer from South Africa, shot a 67 for the day to catch Haas. He ha a 65-yard birdie putt on the 13th and a 25-footer on the 17th.
“I thought the chip on 16 was the key,” he said. “That was a hard shot. But beginning of the week, I thought to myself, ‘If you do get a chance to win, you better not back off.’ Out here, the guys are really good. You’ve got to take the shots on and live with the consequence. I figured I’m going to take it on and it worked out really well.” – See more at: http://www.tbo.com/sports/golf/bc-glf–schwartzels-streak-ap_golff3e16e16315241f5802c3421e1bc7b95#sthash.zOIQ1ZhT.dpuf
