"It was even more frustrating today because I hit two or three very nice long putts and that's the hard part. On 10, I missed a putt from one-and-a-half feet. If I'd tapped it with one-hand I probably would have made it."

A missed cut last year when he was defending his title has added a steely air of determination to Schwartzel and a phenomenal run at the end of 2012 means he is playing with a lot of confidence.
