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. Nov 11 - 8:07 AM

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.
Aug 16 - 5:16 PM

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.
Aug 15 - 2:18 PM

Camilo Villegas blistered Sedgefield Country Club's Donald Ross Course for a bogey-free, 7-under-par 32-31=63 in his opening round of the Wyndham Championship, good for sole possession of the overnight lead.

Villegas arrived in Greensboro, North Carolina, as a question mark due to a wrist injury suffered during his second round of the RBC Canadian Open three weeks ago. He hadn't played since. His job is safe thanks to sitting 105th in the FedExCup standings, but the Colombian managed only two top 25s among 17 paydays. Neither went for a top 10. In today's round, he missed only two (of 14) fairways and just one green in regulation. He circled an eagle (at the par-5 fifth) and five birdies, the longest from 14'2" at the par-3 seventh, the antepenultimate of the loop. The 63 is Villegas' lowest aggregate since he opened the 2012 Humana Challenge with the same.

Camilo Villegas is listed in the published field of next week's Wyndham Championship.

A wrist injury forced the Colombian to withdraw during his second round of the RBC Canadian Open two weeks ago. While he's just 136th on the money list, Villegas sits 103rd in FedExCup points thanks to 17 paydays in 25 starts. Since he's already outside the top 100 but a virtual lock to qualify for the Playoffs, it's logical to assume that he may rest his wrist for The Barclays. It would give him nearly four full weeks to recover. Stay tuned.

Camilo Villegas withdrew from the RBC Canadian Open during his second round due to a wrist injury.

The Colombian started on the back of Royal Montreal Golf Club's Blue Course today and went out in 2-over-par 37 before calling it quits. He was 5-over through 27 holes. It's his first mid-tournament WD since the 2012 RBC Heritage with a back injury. He entered the week ranked 95th in the FedExCup standings, so he likely doesn't have to sweat out a spot inside the top 125 to qualify for the Playoffs and retain status for 2014-15.
Jul 25 - 10:35 AM

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.
Jul 4 - 12:29 PM

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.
Jun 8 - 11:15 AM

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.
Jun 7 - 2:50 PM

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.
