Innisbrook, United States: Nike athlete Charl Schwartzel overcame a five-stroke deficit to win the Valspar Championship.
The South Africa native forced a play-off and quickly beat the competition on the very first hole to secure his second win this year.
“I thought I played really well on the weekend,” Schwartzel said. “I just kept telling myself: ‘You did it a couple weeks ago, you can do it again’.”
Schwartzel shot a closing four-under 67, including an incredible putt with his Nike Method Prototype putter from 64 feet for birdie on the 13th hole.
He struck again on hole 17, pouring in another birdie from 25 feet en route to finishing with the day’s lowest score.
The former US Masters champion said: ”I just needed to get over the hurdle of winning out here again.
”And I think the way this played out with it being really difficult, you’re grinding just to make pars and keep the ball in play. I just needed to put it together on the weekend when it counted.”
Nike Golf is a Full Business Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.
