Alfred Dunhill Championship 2013

Charl Schwartzel defends title

December 1, 2013

Charl Schwartzel successfully defended his title at the Alfred Dunhill Championship, shooting a 4-under 68 on Sunday for a four-shot victory and his first European Tour victory in a year.

Schwartzel finished with a 17-under total of 271 at Leopard Creek to secure his third Alfred Dunhill title. Richard Finch was second, while Simon Dyson, Ross Fisher and Romain Wattel tied for third.

Schwartzel held the overnight lead and made four birdies in a bogey-free final round on a course where he has a history of stellar results.

''This tournament has been very good to me,'' Schwartzel said. ''I've had lots of seconds here as well. Probably for the rest of my golfing career this will always be a special one.''

The South African has four second-place finishes here to go with his three titles. It was his second title on the European Tour since winning the Masters in 2011.

Schwartzel's ninth career win on the European Tour returned him to the top 20 in the world rankings.

The 29-year-old Schwartzel went the last 62 holes of the Alfred Dunhill without dropping a shot after a double bogey on No. 10 in his first round.
