Camilo Villegas posted 1-under-par 35-36=71 in his opening round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.
Well, whatever forced the Colombian to call it quits after nine holes at Harbour Town a week ago today didn't seem to affect him today. He hit only 11 greens in regulation but rallied for five birdies to offset two bogeys and a double. This is his first sub-par score since a third-round 67 at Bay Hill five weeks ago.

Camilo Villegas is scheduled to compete in next week's Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

We still don't know why he walked off Harbour Town after only nine holes on Thursday, but if he's able to get back out there in the bayou, Villegas will be attempting to end an 0-for-3 skid as well as for the first time in three trips. He hasn't broken par in four consecutive rounds at TPC Louisiana.

Camilo Villegas withdrew from the RBC Heritage during his opening round.

The Colombian called it quits after nine holes. He was 8-over-par with one birdie, three bogeys, one double and a quad-9 at the fifth hole. If an explanation is released, we will relay it to you. He's no stranger to taking time off due to injuries, but this is just his fifth mid-tournament WD in 243 PGA TOUR starts. He's never split early more than once in a season, either. Today's decision drops him to 8-for-13 on the season still devoid of a top-15 finish. Villegas entered the week slotted 105th in the FedExCup standings.

Camilo Villegas qualified for the 79th Masters with his win at the Wyndham Championship in 2014.

Villegas is 3-for-5 at the Masters and makes his return to Augusta National after failing to stamp his ticket to the last three editions. After missing the cut in his first two attempts (2007 and 2008), his T13 in 2009 was the first of three consecutive cuts made and his best finish to date. After an uninspiring start to 2014-15, Villegas enters the week having made four of his last five cuts on TOUR, all T30s or better. With that said, the 33-year-old ranks 100th in FedExCup points and at 189th in total driving and 148th in the all-around, it appears it'll be tough going to significantly add to that total this week.

Camilo Villegas finished in a share of 20th place at last year's Arnold Palmer Invitational and is back for another look this week.

The Florida resident will bank on local knowledge this week as he lives just a couple hours from the course. He's put that knowledge to good use in recent years with a 6-for-8 record including top 20s each of the past two years. On the season, Villegas has missed just two cuts in his first nine starts and makes for a very appealing mid-tier option in fantasy games this week.

Camilo Villegas turns his attention to Riviera Country Club for this week's Northern Trust Open.

Villegas arrives this week ranked 122nd in the FedExCup standings through seven starts. He's missed just two cuts this season but his course history isn't quite as nice. The Colombian is 0-for-3 at this event and is still searching for his first under-par round. Other than extremely deep leagues this week, there is no need for gamers to roster Villegas.

Camilo Villegas escaped Waialae Country Club with a 3-under-par 32-35=67 in the third round of the Sony Open to join a large group at 10-under 200.

Villegas circled five birdies on his round, three of which were from 15 to 23 feet, to go with three bogeys. Two of those birdies were on his final two holes, and have him positioned for a top-10 finish with a strong final round. He entered this week ranked 131st in the FedExCup standings. He should improve upon that dramatically with a solid finale.
Jan 17 - 9:25 PM

Camilo Villegas crafted a bogey-free, 7-under-par 29-34=63 in his opening round of the Sony Open in Hawaii.

The Colombian split only five (of 14) fairways, but he converted on half of the 14 scoring opportunities he manufactured. He rolled in seven birdies, six of which on his outward nine. All five of his birdies from holes 2-7 ran at least 12 feet. The longest of the set measured 23'2" at the par-4 fifth. At last check, he ranked second in the field in strokes gained: putting with a metric of 4.365. It's not that long ago that he signed for a 63. Villegas capped his victory at Sedgefield (also a par 70) in the Wyndham Championship in mid-August of last year.
Jan 15 - 5:43 PM

Camilo Villegas salvaged his season with a win at the 2014 Wyndham Championship and will tee it up at this week's Hyundai Tournament of Champions as a result.

Villegas was ranked 99th in the FedExCup standings prior to his latest win which catapulted him into the top 40. It was his only top 10 of the season. Many will remember the Colombian's last trip to The Plantation Course in 2011 which resulted in a disqualification after signing for the wrong scorecard. Villegas finished T12 in his 2009 course debut so he's certainly got sleeper appeal in many fantasy formats this week.
Jan 8 - 8:14 PM

Camilo Villegas tied for 36th in his first OHL Classic at Mayakoba last year and is back for more this week.

Villegas was off to a hot start in last year's event, opening with rounds of 70-67-67 on the par-71 layout before a final-round 73 dropped him down the leaderboard. Apparently he liked what he saw at El Camaleón Golf Club. He's played just twice in 2014-15, tying for 72nd in the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open before improving to T54 at The McGladrey Classic.

Camilo Villegas will kick off his 2014-15 season at this week's Shriners Hospital for Children Open.

Villegas had a revival season last year after a disappointing 2012 and 2013. He went 20-for-28 while accumulating four top 25s and notched a victory along the way. The Colombian has seen both sides of the coin here at TPC Summerlin, finishing T30 in his debut but missing the cut last year. Gamers should have a look at Villegas in salary-cap formats.

Camilo Villegas will try and tackle Cherry Hills Country Club at this week's BMW Championship.

Since 2007 when the Playoffs were introduced, Villegas owns 10 top 10s in 22 FedExCup Playoff events, but none since the 2011 BMW Championship. A very impressive percentage of top 10s, bested only by Tiger Woods, Steve Stricker, and Jim Furyk. Focusing more on the present, Villegas is three tournaments removed from his victory at the Wyndham Championship, but the rest of his 2014 campaign has been mediocre. Entering the week at 54th in the FedExCup standings, this will likely be his last event of the season, unless he can rekindle some of that FEC magic.

Camilo Villegas blitzed Sedgefield Country Club for a bogey-free, 7-under-par 29-34=63 in his final round of the Wyndham Championship to post 17-under 263, good for a one-stroke victory over Bill Haas and Freddie Jacobson.

Villegas came out swinging from the sixth-to-last pairing on Sunday, knocking off four birdies and an eagle on the opening nine holes. With the exception of his 46'8" birdie at the par-4 sixth, all of his circles occurred from inside nine feet. The ball-striking was exquisite as he split 11 (of 14) fairways and landed 15 greens in regulation. He also gained over two strokes with the putter in the finale. This is his fourth PGA TOUR title, but it's been over four years since his last (2010 Honda Classic). He skyrockets 68 spots in the FedExCup standings to 37th as the Playoffs commence on Thursday.

Camilo Villegas posted a 2-under-par 33-35=68 in the third round of the Wyndham Championship to sneak inside the top 10 at 10-under 200 with 18 to play.

Villegas circled four birdies, including a 13'1" putt on the par-4 sixth and a 13'4" effort on the par-4 eight, and squared two bogeys on his lap around Sedgefield CC. The ball-striking was on point, splitting 11 of 14 fairways and landing 14 GIR. Entering the week 105th in the FedExCup standings, he was already safely inside the number for the Playoffs, but now has his eyes set on a deeper run.

Overnight leader Camilo Villegas slipped to a 1-under-par 34-35=69 in his second round of the Wyndham Championship.

On it own, it's not bad. He landed only 10 greens in regulation and squared two bogeys, although they ended his round at Nos. 17 and 18. However, given that he slept on the lead and now sits at 8-under 132, two strokes back with the afternoon wave tackling Sedgefield, he can't feel too great about his play. Villegas buried a pair of putts from 11'11" today, the first for birdie at the par-4 eighth, the second for par at the par-4 10th.
