Schwartzel won the Thailand Golf Championship on Dec. 9, ending up 11 strokes ahead of the field. This week he had back-to-back 64s in building a 10-stroke lead through three rounds and used a 3-under-par 69 Sunday to finish off his ninth European Tour win.
It was his second Dunhill win -- his first European Tour win was at the event in December 2004. He's also finished second four times at the tournament.
His 72-hole total of 24-under 264 represented tournament records for score and strokes under par.
Kristoffer Broberg, was 2-under for the final round, and wound up at 12-under for second. Gregory Bourdy suffered a final-hole double bogey and shot 72 Sunday to slip into a tie for third with Scott Jamieson (68 Sunday), Garth Mulroy (68) and Andy Sullivan (69) at 11-under 277.
Schwartzel opened Sunday's play with seven consecutive pars and then had a bogey at the eighth hole. He answered with a birdie at No. 9 and had a solid second nine -- marked by birdies at Nos. 12 and 13 -- for his 70.
Play was delayed about 2 hours due to a thunderstorm when Schwartzel was about halfway through his round.
