Charl Schwartzel wins green jacket

AUGUSTA, Ga. (WVLT) -- South Africa native Charl Schwartzel birdied the final four holes Sunday to win the Masters by two shots and claim his first major title.

Schwartzel sunk a 20-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole to complete a six-under-par 66 and claim the green jacket.

Tiger Woods was five-under through the front nine, but failed to make key putts down the stretch, finishing four shots back at 10-under.
