Camilo Villegas' Uncle Shot Dead
It seems like only bad news is coming out of the golf world right now. We have back surgery, a brain tumor and now a family death.
Camilo Villegas, who won the last two events of the real PGA Tour schedule, found out his uncle had been shot and killed during a robbery attempt at his uncle's coffee trading enterprise.
Ernesto Villegas Zuluaga, 56, was killed when two armed men entered his coffee trading enterprise demanding money and he jumped on one of them, according to senior Caldas state official Henry Murillo.
The news is Camilo plans to fly back home for the funeral of his uncle (who was also his godfather).
We hate to hear this and Camilo, we all will try to keep you in our thoughts.
