Charl Schwartzel loses stroke to field at Riviera

Former Masters champion Charl Schwartzel lost a stroke to the Northern Trust Open field Sunday when he parred the first hole at Riviera Country Club.

Schwartzel’s approach to the par-5 just missed the green left, but his chip rolled about 10 feet past the cup and he missed his birdie putt.

He was the only player in the last four threesomes to not gain at least a stroke on the opening hole.
