Camilo Villegas

Cobra Brand Ambassador, Camilo Villegas, captured his third title of his career on the PGA tour last weekend.  He set a record by shooting 13 under par, 267.  That is the lowest score shot at the Honda Classic since it moved to the course PGA National in 2007.  Villegas had a total of 22 birdies total and held the lead every single day.  “I just kept plugging; I kept hitting good shots,” Villegas said. “If there was a golf course where you can mess up coming in, it’s this one, trust me. Those finishing holes are tough. And I just picked my targets, made good swings and took care of business.”  Previously at the Waste Management Phoenix Open Villegas finished tied for 8th, and at the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship finished in 3rd.  Recently Camilo has climed to 3rd in the Fed Ex Cup Standings, number 2 in driving distance on the PGA tour with 300.3 yards, and 12th in the world rankings.
