Charl Schwartzel was playing in a European Tour event in South Africa when he found his ball rested on the cart path. Schwartzel pulled out a club and hit his next shot to two feet off of the asphalt, flying the ball just over the hole. Most people couldn’t hit a shot that well from the grass let alone off the cart path. Simply fantastic.

And that may be because, even a year after he won the Masters, this is all pretty new for him. Winning The Masters changed...
