The South African golfer Charl Schwartzel decimated a star field at the Thailand Golf Championship on Sunday, ending a 20-month spell without a title.

Schwartzel, last year's US Masters champion, finished 25 under par, dropping only one strokes in 72 holes, and 11 strokes clear of the current US Masters champion Bubba Watson, who tied for second with a 20-year old local rising star.
