Who Is Charl Schwartzel's Wife?
2011 Masters champion Charl Schwartzel is married to Rosalind Jacobs. She was a ranked provincial tennis player, but her father, Brian Jacobs, was the golf teaching pro at Meyerton Golf Club near Schwartzel's hometown. Interestingly she is also the second cousin of former world number one Justin Rose as well.
We believe they first started dating in 2008, after Charl had gone through a bad breakup and his golf was suffering. When they began dating, his play improved. “Whatever you do, it all starts at home,” Charl explained to Augusta.com (opens in new tab). “If you’re happy at home, it will feed into what you do as a professional…[After the breakup, his golf] wasn’t going anywhere. I met Rosalind and have been very happy within myself.”
In the past Schwartzel has acknowledged how much support Rosalind gives him out on Tour; saying; “She supports me very much and goes everywhere. It can be a very, very lonely life. To have someone out there, I don’t have to worry too much. She’s very independent and goes out and does things. But she’s out there walking with me for support in rain and wind. That means a lot.” She has also caddied for him at several different tournaments as well as you can see from the image above.

We believe the pair have one child together, a daughter called Olivia. The couple keeps their private life as such.
A golfer for most of his life, Sam started playing the game to prove he was the best player out of his father and two brothers.
He quickly became a golf equipment expert and has always been the one family and friends come to for buying advice, and spends a lot of his time putting golf gear, apparel and shoes to the test.
He is a graduate of Swansea University where he studied History and American Studies, and he has been a part of the Golf Monthly team since February 2018. He also previously worked for World Soccer and Rugby World magazines.
A jack of all trades across print and digital formats, Sam now spends most of his time testing and looking after golf gear content for the website. He also oversees all Tour player content as well.
Unfortunately, Sam is not a member of any club at the moment but regularly gets out on the golf course to keep up the facade of having a handicap of five.
Sam is currently playing:
Driver: Titleist TS3
Fairway Wood: TaylorMade M5 (15 degrees), Nike Covert Tour 2.0 (19 degrees)
Irons (4-PW): Titleist AP2
Wedges: Titleist Vokey SM7 54˚, 58˚
Putter: Scotty Cameron Circa 62 #6
