Hey, That Guy That Does The Weird Putting Stance Won a Tourney
I know, I know, once football starts most lose track of golf, especially when the Chosen One is out with an injury. No matter, the tournaments still pay the same and Camilo Villegas took home the trophy today at the BMW Championship, his first PGA Tour victory.
Villegas got himself in position to win with opening rounds of 65-66-66 and closed with a two-under 68 that was good enough for a two shot victory over Dudley Hart.
Now in second place in the FedEx Cup point standings, Villegas will be heading to the Tour Championship with absolutely zero chance of taking Vijay Singh in the FedEx Cup. Singh has to just complete all four rounds and he will land the $10 million prize.
Note to Villegas -- watch the Volkswagen part of "Happy Gilmore" for some advice on how to stop Singh from winning. "Jackass!"
