Charl Schwartzel got his revenge on the par-4 15th hole in the third round of the 2013 Open Championship.

The 2010 Masters champion teed up with driver at the difficult 448-yard hole at Muirfield and blasted one down the fairway. The ball hit the ground running and weaved its way around a bunker on the left, then onto the green and within a dozen feet for eagle.

Earlier in the week, Schwartzel was not so fortunate at the 15th. After his drive landed in deep grass to the left of the fairway, Schwartzel snapped his 6-iron in half when he threw it into the ground following his approach shot. Schwartzel went on to make double-bogey 6.

Before Schwartzel, Lee Westwood was the player to get the ball closest to the green at the 15th off the tee. He hit a 400-yard drive that landed in a bunker Schwartzel's green-seeking ball skirted.

Nevertheless, Schwartzel only made birdie and is still well behind the lead of Lee Westwood and Tiger Woods.
