Villegas gets first PGA victory
ST. LOUIS » Camilo Villegas gave golf fans a real reason to pay attention to him - a trophy.
A marketing dream with his model looks and stylish dress, Villegas won for the first time on the PGA Tour with three big putts on the back nine at Bellerive yesterday for a wire-to-wire victory in the BMW Championship.
Villegas closed with a 2-under 68 for a two-shot victory over Dudley Hart, who birdied the final two holes to earn a trip to the Masters with his highest finish in two years.
With one playoff event remaining, the FedExCup essentially is over.
Vijay Singh, who won the first two events, tied for 44th and earned enough points that all he has to do is complete four rounds at the Tour Championship in two weeks to collect the $10 million payoff.
