Camilo Villegas signed for a 3-under-par 34-33=67 in the third round of The Greenbrier Classic and enters the final round at 8-under 202.
Villegas swallowed bogeys on each of the first two holes at The Old White TPC, but that would be it for the blemishes. He was able to erase those by the turn, then added three birdies on the back nine including a 45'4" bomb on the par-4 14th and a closing 13'9" effort on the par-3 18th. He was solid across the board, gaining over a stroke with the putter, splitting 11 of 14 fairways and landing 13 GIR. Jul 5 - 5:12 PM

Camilo Villegas sits 5-under-par 68-67=135 through two rounds of The Greenbrier Classic, three strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Villegas entered the week ranked 100th in the FedExCup standings despite no top 10s and only two top 25s. As long as you can accept that he's straight rank and file and a far cry from the electric talent that he flashed years ago, you'll find him to be serviceable in some formats. Today at The Old White TPC, he went 4-for-5 in scrambling with a bogey at the par-4 14th hole and buried four birdies. However, his only notable conversion dropped for par from 12-and-a-half feet at the par-4 13th.

Camilo Villegas stumbled to a 1-over-par 37-34=71 in the third round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic, fading to 7-under 203 for the tournament.

The Florida Gator struggled early, handing back three bogeys to just one birdie on his front nine. A pair of birdies outpaced a lone bogey on the back nine at TPC Southwind. His ball-striking was terrible, splitting just five of 14 fairways and landing a mere eight GIR in the third round. His 20'8" birdie at the 17th could serve as some positive momentum for the finale.

Camilo Villegas fashioned a bogey-free, 6-under-par 32-32=64 in his second round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic.

Man, he loves himself some TPC Southwind. Villegas went 5-for-5 in scrambling and circled six birdies, five of which from outside 11 feet. The longest of the lot measured 30'11" at the par-4 sixth hole. He's 8-under 132, four strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead, and has suffered only one bogey thus far.

Camilo Villegas opened the FedEx St. Jude Classic with a 2-under-par 35-33=68, finishing two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Villegas ranks 100th in FedExCup points, but he's cashed in just one of his last five starts (T37, Memorial). So, TPC Southwind arrived at a great time given he's 7-for-8 on the track with five top 20s, including a T10 last year. The Colombian split 10 (of 14) fairways and stood over 14 opportunities to break par, so that he did so only three times is mildly disappointing. His longest conversion measured 17'10" for birdie at the par-4 first.
Jun 5 - 3:22 PM

Camilo Villegas sits 5-under-par 71-68=139 through two rounds of the Memorial.

The Colombian entered the week with 12 paydays in 18 starts but only one top-25 finish (T20, Bay Hill). He had also missed his last four cuts, failing to break 70 in any of those eight rounds. So, oh what a difference one week can make. Such is life on the PGA TOUR. Today's look of Muirfield Village featured seven birdies, including four in a row beginning at the par-3 12th hole. Two of his par breakers disappeared from just outside 11 feet. Villegas was sitting atop the leaderboard for a while, too, but he closed bogey-bogey to finish one stroke off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Camilo Villegas is looking to rebound in this week's Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial.

Villegas is leaking oil, on the heels of three consecutive missed cuts, and could use a nice bounce-back week to turn his season back around. On the bright side, the Colombian is 2-for-2 at Colonial and seven of his eight rounds here have been par or better. His recent struggles will detract many gamers from his true value, making him a nice off-the-radar pick in deeper formats.

Camilo Villegas makes his ninth stop at the Wells Fargo Championship this week.

Villegas will tee it up at Quail Hollow ranked 85th in the FedExCup standings. While he's made five of his eight cuts here, the best showing is a T22 in 2009. Considering that, he'll likely be happy to leave Charlotte, North Carolina still in the 85th spot in the FEC race.
Apr 29 - 9:30 PM

Camilo Villegas shot a 5-under-par 36-31=67 in his opening round of the Shell Houston Open.

He hit 15 greens in regulation and holed seven birdies, including a 14-footer at 2 and a walk-off five-yarder from the fringe at 18. Villegas also squared two bogeys, the latter due to a three-putt from 44'3" at the par-3 ninth, but he finished one stroke off the pace of the clubhouse tri-leaders.
Apr 3 - 4:17 PM

Camilo Villegas spun a bogey-free 5-under-par 34-33=67 in the final round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Villegas had the flat stick working, with three of his five birdies at Bay Hill falling from outside of 20 feet. That was supported by a strokes gained stat that had him picking up well over three strokes on the field at the time of his posting. He landed just 11 GIR on a day where pins are tucked. He ends the week as the first man in the clubhouse at 4-under 284.
Mar 23 - 1:32 PM

Camilo Villegas returns to the Arnold Palmer Invitational to try and improve on his T16 in 2013.

Villegas is a respectable 90th in the current FedExCup standings, making eight of 10 cuts but failing to crack a top 25. His lofty finish at Bay Hill in 2013 was a bit of a surprise since he'd never cracked the top 40 in his six previous starts. He's 13th in GIR and 37th in ball-striking, so if tee-to-green game turns into a premium he stands a chance for another high finish.
Mar 19 - 9:06 PM

Camilo Villegas has been removed from the published field of this week's AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

He's played three consecutive weeks and has cashed in his last six, but his best finish in seven paydays remains a T26 at the Open. Nevertheless, he's 58th in FedExCup points.
Feb 3 - 10:15 AM

Camilo Villegas hasn't cracked a top 25 in 14 consecutive starts leading up to his appearance at this week's Waste Management Phoenix Open.

Whether his well-documented training laid the foundation for a potentially chrnonic sore back in recent years or whether it was simply the mechanics of his swing at fault, the Colombian has rapidly drifted in rank-and-file pick-em material. Now 32 years of age, Villegas sits 288th in the Official World Golf Ranking, so he's out of sight and, therefore, out of mind for most golf fans. He's missed only two of his last 20 cuts, but hasn't shown enough of his patented flash to warrant anywhere near the value he commanded years ago.
Jan 28 - 10:58 PM

Camilo Villegas finished the 2013 season inside the top 125 of both the FedExCup standings and the PGA TOUR money list, meaning he is back for another year on the PGA TOUR.

Villegas has fought to keep his status in the recent history, sometimes successfully and sometimes not. While he’s nowhere near the elite form that saw him win two tournaments in 2008 and another in 2010, he is at least up and back on the saddle. The 2013-14 season is offering some early promise as well. He’s made four out of five cuts during quite a busy schedule in the fall, but has yet to crack a top 25. His form in 2013 and start to the new season makes him quite an interesting investment. Don’t count on him being an elite player in 2014, but he could provide a modest return at the right price.

Camilo Villegas smoothed a 4-under-par 31-35=66 in his opening round of The McGladrey Classic.

He failed to get up and in both times he missed a green in regulation today, but the Colombian picked off six birdies at Seaside to finish just three strokes behind the twosome in the clubhouse with the lead. Villegas' longest conversion measured 21'9" at the par-4 10th hole, his first of the round. He tied for 20th in his debut at the tournament last year.
