Charl Schwartzel

Charl (Adriaan) Schwartzel (b. 31 August 1984 Johannesburg) is a South African golfer who plays on the PGA European Tour and the Sunshine Tour.

Schwartzel had a dominant junior amateur career in South Africa, also winning some amateur events overseas, and he played for his country in the 2002 Eisenhower Trophy. He then turned professional at the age of eighteen, and following the path of many other leading South African players he qualified for the European Tour late that year. He was then the second youngest South African golfer to do so after Dale Hayes. He earned enough money to retain his European Tour card in both 2003 and 2004. In the 2004/05 season his career moved up a notch, with victory in the Dunhill Championship, a leading tournament in South Africa which is co-sanctioned by the European Tour, and first place on the Sunshine Tour's order of merit.
