Schwartzel wins in Shandong

South Africa's Charl Schwartzel shot a four-under-par 68 on Sunday to take the Nanshan China Masters by a single shot.
The two overnight leaders, 2011 British Open champion Darren Clarke and China's No.1 Liang Wenchong, the defending titleholder, could only manage level par and tied for second place.
Schwartzel started the day in sixth place, three behind the leaders, and did not make much of an impression on the front nine, only clawing back one shot on Clarke.
But three birdies on the back nine, including two consecutively on the 15th and 16th, saw him squeak home after the Northern Irishman bogeyed the par-three 17th when a loose tee shot left him on the fringe of a bunker.
Schwartzel finished nine under for the OneAsia tournament, played on the Montgomerie course of the Nanshan International Golf Club in East China's Shandong Province.
