NOTES
Reigning Masters champion Charl Schwartzel will attempt to capture his third straight Joburg Open this week in the sixth running of the event. Schwartzel has dominated at Royal Johannesburg and Kensington Golf Club in his hometown, winning by four and six strokes, respectively, the last two years. Last year, he rode the momentum from the win all the way until April, when he posted a shocking Masters victory and vaulted himself into mainstream golf conversation. Now ranked No. 9 in the world, Schwartzel heads into this event with a new title that goes with Masters champs: the favorite. Unfortunately for the South African, he has yet to post another win since Augusta, but is returning to his most familiar surroundings.Only five players on the European Tour have previously won the same tournament three years in a row, most recently Tiger Woods in 2005-07 at the WGC - CA Championship and WGC - Bridgestone Invitational. Schwartzel`s biggest competition will likely come from fellow South African and two-time U.S. Open champ Retief Goosen, who posted a third-place finish at last week`s Africa Open. Golf Channel will have coverage of all four rounds, and the European Tourremains in South Africa next week for the Volvo Golf Champions, won by PaulCasey in 2011.
