Schwartzel carded a four-under par 68 closing round to finish ahead of Clarke and defending champion Liang Wenchong, who both tied second place.
Schwartzel birded at the 15th and 16th holes to draw level with the Dungannon man.
However, a wayward tee-shot and a bogey on the 17th for Clarke proved critical on the final round.
The 2011 Open winner had made himself a strong contender with Saturday's third round 68.
