This past Sunday, Charl Schwartzel became the winner of the Valspar Championship during a sudden death playoff. The 2011 Masters winner made a par on the 18th hole to beat Bill Haas.
Schwartzel states, “I just needed to get over the hurdle of winning out here again. And I think the way today 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.”
Schwartzel is known for rocking Nike Golf. Nike’s Golf line came about back in 1986, when their first pair of golf shoes were created. It took about ten years for the company to get its’ golf line on its’ feet, even after signing Tiger Woods when he had turned pro. Ever since, the company has grown quickly, with many Tour players wearing the “Swoosh” head to toe.
