Camilo Villegas is back in winning form…
The 32-year-old Colombian professional golfer shot a 7-under 63 and finished at 17-under 263 at the Wyndham Championship to win his first PGA Tour title since 2010.
With the win, Villegas earned $954,000 and 500 FedEx Cup points in the final regular-season event.
Villegas had four birdies and an eagle on the front nine, added a birdie on the par-5 15th and watched the rest of the tournament from the air-conditioned scorer’s tent with his caddie.
“I was hoping for a playoff,” Villegas said. “I thought I needed one more (stroke).”
But Villegas didn’t need to work harder… When the rest of the field struggled late, he wound up with his fourth PGA Tour title and first since the 2010 Honda Classic.
He also became the second first-round leader to win the tournament since its 2008 move back to Sedgefield Country Club and first since Arjun Atwal in 2010.
