For the third week in a row, Camilo Villegas looks to keep his FedExCup Playoffs alive, this time at the Deutsche Bank Championship in Norton, Massachusetts.
Villegas is one of eight players to move inside the top 100 in FEC points (from No. 123 to No. 99) at last week's Barclays where he rode a first-round, 5-under 65 to a T30, concluding in a lackluster 70-70-73. He did hole a 9'3" par putt on the 72nd hole however, to guarantee his top-100 finish. The week prior at the Wyndham Championship, he played his way into the postseason with a T26, jumping from 129th to 123rd in the standings. Villegas is 7-for-7 at the DBC (in the Playoffs era) with a cumulative total of 38-under-par at the par-71 TPC Boston. Two of the seven went for top 10s (T9/2007; T3/2008). In the five editions since 2008, he's cracked the top 25 once, barely, (T25/2012). The 33-year-old has five top 25s on the season (26 starts) but has yet to record a top 10. His season best is 16th at The Honda Classic back in March. Sep 1 - 7:31 PM

Overnight quad-leader Camilo Villegas followed his opening 65 at The Barclays with an even-par 37-33=70 in today's second round.

This was a round within a round within a round. Fast-forwarding to his back nine for a moment, Villegas jarred his 122-yard approach from the fairway for eagle at the par-4 10th hole. He chased it with birdies at 11 and 12, the former dropping in from 10'9". However, he played the other 15 holes in birdie-free 4-over with four bogeys, two of which via a three-putt. When he added it all up, he still found himself juts two shots off Bubba Watson's 36-hole lead.

Camilo Villegas crafted a 5-under-par 34-31=65 in today's opening round of The Barclays, finishing with a share of the clubhouse lead with Bubba Watson and Spencer Levin.

Villegas is one of three to qualify for the Playoffs without the benefit of a top 10. (John Peterson and John Huh are the others.) The Colombian placed no better than 16th at The Honda Classic, which is also his best result since winning the 2014 Wyndham Championship. He's fresh off a T26 in his title defense at Sedgefield. Today at Plainfield Country Club, Villegas went 6-for-13 in scoring chances with six birdies, including a conversion from 15'5" at the par-4 seventh hole. His only miscue occurred at the par-4 eighth where he settled for bogey, but he thwarted another with a par save from 19'10" at the par-4 fifth. At last check, the 33-year-old ranked inside the top 10 in both strokes-gained stats on the day.

Camilo Villegas arrives at this week's Barclays ranked 124th in the FedExCup standings.

Villegas put together a clutch T26 at last week's Wyndham Championship to sneak into the postseason. He's just 14-for-25 on the season, sprinkling in just enough top 25s (5) to make this week's field. The Colombian ranks 106th in strokes gained entering the week. He will need a very strong week at Plainfield Country Club in order to advance onto TPC Boston.

Camilo Villegas concluded his title defense with a final-round, 2-under-par 34-34=68 to wrap his sixth appearance at 10-under 270, currently T27 on the live leaderboard.

Villegas entered the week outside the top 125 in the FedExCup standings (No. 129). Via his win at the 2014 Wyndham, he's already exempt on TOUR thru 2015-16, so this week was about making the FEC Playoffs. Villegas began the day at 8-under (T27) and seven back after opening in 66-69-67. On his round, he hit eight (of 14) fairways and missed a whopping eight greens in regulation. Two of those misses came at Nos. 4 and 9, subsequently missing par putts from 6'7" and 5'9", respectively. The last came at the par-4 finisher which resulted in his third bogey, missing this time from 7'9". The 33-year-old mustered five birdies on the card at Nos. 1, 2, 5, 11 and 15, including a 38-footer at the 11th and a 25-footer at the par-4 second. With play still in progress, he's projected No. 122 in FEC points.
Aug 23 - 3:39 PM

Camilo Villegas opened his title defense of the Wyndham Championship with a 4-under-par 31-35=66 and sits four strokes off the pace of clubhouse co-leaders William McGirt and Erik Compton.

Villegas hasn't logged a top 10 since his victory at Sedgefield last year. As a result, it's not surprising that he's 129th in the FedExCup standings. However, he pretty much picked up with he left off, going 5-for-15 in scoring chances with five birdies, all on his first 10 holes. The set was highlighted by conversions from 18'3" and 27'11" at Nos. 2 and 7, respectively.
Aug 20 - 6:19 PM

Camilo Villegas lifted the 2014 Wyndham Championship trophy and returns this week for a chance to defend his title.

The Colombian is treading water ahead of this week, playing the weekend in just 13-of-24 starts this season. That puts him in a put up or shut up situation this week at Sedgefield Country Club. Villegas currently ranks 129th in the FedExCup standings, and will need a strong finish to jump up at least four spots and secure a spot in the FEC Playoffs. Motivation can be a powerful tool, and we know he likes this track. Gamers should give Villegas a serious look this week as a second or third-tier option.

Camilo Villegas polished off the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational with a bogey-free, 5-under-par 31-34=65 in today's final round.

He missed only two (of 14) fairways and went 6-for-6 in scrambling at Firestone today, thus providing evidence to the contenders that there's a low number to be had in pursuit of the $1.57-million first prize. Of course, he won't be collecting that as he finished at even-par 280 and sits outside the top 20 at of this moment, but the Colombian will make the trip to Whistling Straits with a shot of confidence. He buried five birdies today, four of which from outside 13 feet, including gems of 33'4" and 35'4" at Nos. 7 and 14, respectively. At last check, both of his strokes-gained stats for the round sat at 3.250 or better.

Camilo Villegas crafted a 5-under-par 33-34=67 in the third round of the RBC Canadian Open and is the 54-hole clubhouse leader at 11-under 205.

Villegas began Moving Day at 6-under (T22) and eights shots back of 36-hole leader Chad Campbell. On his round, he circled five birdies to overshadow two bogeys and added an eagle-3 at the finisher to post the clubhouse mark. The 33-year-old's stats show 10 (of 14) fairways, 14 greens in regulation, and at last check, a cumulative 8.364 in strokes gained: tee-to-green. Villegas' loop of Glen Abbey on Saturday ended in 5-under, and he played the four par 5s in 5-under, circling birdies at Nos. 2, 13, 16 and adding the aforementioned eagle on 18 from just over five feet. His only conversion from outside of six feet came from 24'6" at the par-4 eighth. The Colombian entered the week 138th in the FedExCup standings with a season-best T16 (The Honda Classic) on 20 starts. His career-best at the RBC (10 starts) is T5 in 2006.

Camilo Villegas preps for his fifth start at Glen Abbey Golf Club this week at the RBC Canadian Open.

Villegas is 3-for-4 at Glen Abbey, 7-for-10 overall at the RBC. He's posted just three top 25s in 20 starts this season, but upside is the name of the game for this four-time PGA TOUR winner. The Colombian sits at 138th in the FedExCup standings. Gamers looking for a boom-or-bust type of pick could do worse than Villegas this week.

Camilo Villegas carved out a 4-under-par 33-33=66 in today's third round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic to post 5-under 205, matching Tim Wilkinson for the early 54-hole clubhouse lead.

Villegas began the day at 1-under (T39) and eight shots adrift. Despite missing his first three fairways, he opened birdie-birdie-birdie, a sign of things to come. Early conversions show 11' at the first and 17'3" at the second. His two-putt birdie at the par-5 third was his only two-putt on a first nine that required just 10 putts to complete. The 33-year-old missed six straight greens in regulation on Nos 4-9, saving par on each except at the ninth, but he still canned a 10'5" one-putt for bogey. Villegas would add four more par breakers on the back, all in excess of nine feet, culminated by a 45'6" prayer at No. 15. In total, the Colombian found seven (of 14) fairways, hit but nine greens in regulation and toured TPC Southwind in 23 putts, including 14 one-putt greens. He survived his errant ball-striking by manufacturing 7-for-9 in scrambles but it eventually caught up with him, registering a double bogey-6 at 17 that included a three-putt from 42'3".

Camilo Villegas contests his ninth Memorial Tournament this week in Dublin, Ohio.

Villegas hasn't had a check from the PGA TOUR deposited into his account since a T21 at the Arnold Palmer Invitational in March. He limps into Muirfield Village missing his last five cuts and sandwiching in a nine-hole withdrawal at the RBC Heritage to boot. Overall, the 33-year-old is batting .500 on the season with eight, Sunday rounds completed in 16 starts and registering two top 25s, good for 138th in the FedExCup standings. The Colombian has fared pretty well at the Memorial going 7-for-7 since missing the cut in 2006 debut, but has only cracked the top 30 once (T28, 2010). He was T10 after 36 holes last year, but faded to T37 with weekend rounds of 72-74.

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.
Apr 23 - 4:20 PM

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.
