Charl Schwartzel won his second consecutive European Tour event with a six-stroke victory in the Joburg Open in Johannesburg yesterday.

The South African shot a final-round 66 on the East Course to finish the event on 23-under-par 261, six clear of second-placed fellow South African Keith Horne and Briton Darren Clarke.

Schwartzel, who won last week's Africa Open, dropped only three shots all week: a bogey at the third on Sunday and a double-bogey at the West Course's 12th on Thursday. The win cements his place at the top of the Race to Dubai standings after four events on the 2010 European Tour.
