Camilo Villegas won the Wyndham Championship at Sedgefield Country Club.
Camilo shot a final round -7 under par 63, his second 63 in the tournament, to win the Wyndham Championship with a -17 under par total. He said it was tough watching the guys coming in behind him;
“You got to stay strong and keep working, I’ve always done that. I’ve always been a hard worker and always kind of believed in myself, sometimes more than others and, again, just happy to be right here right next to this trophy.”
“Tough sometimes when you’re watching it, you can’t control it. When the boys got closer to the last hole, you get a little anxious and, like I said, you don’t have a golf club in your hand. Sometimes it’s better to be on the golf course.”
” But, you know what, it’s funny because your mind tells you things and then the next day you do it all over again. What I mean by that is yes, there’s times you go like, ‘Man, I hate this game. How much longer do I want to play the game? How much longer do I want to travel”
“That’s just you being silly because once again, you take two days off, you show up to the range, good attitude, keep practicing, keep grinding, show up to the tournament, hope you have a good week, work for a hard week, look at the trophy, want one of those in your house and, again, there’s low spots but is that really you talking to you? I don’t know.”
“Beginning of the year I look at my caddie and I said, ‘Big guy, I want to win on the PGA TOUR again. It happened to be the last tournament of the regular season and so, yes, I’ve accomplished my primary goal this year.”
“It feels great and I go to the Playoffs hopefully the same way I did this week and hopefully I will play some good golf.”
Tied in second place were Bill Hass and Freddie Jacobson, both finished one shot back at -16 under par. Bill was happy to have a good Sunday round;
“Any time you have a good round on Sunday you take positives from it. I’m looking forward to the next four weeks. Playing a lot of golf right now, try to get some rest and just see what happens.”
“I haven’t had that many great finishes, to be in the hunt, 16, 17, 18 I felt like I hit quality shots under the gun and pressure and I’m proud of that.”
“Take that into the next time I’m in that position and maybe I can hit some good shots and capitalize.”
Freddie was really unhappy with performance on the last hole;
“It really sucks when you play solid all day and you know, I really thought it was my day today coming in, just really starting to click with my swing, at least with my iron play so I felt like I’ve been giving myself a ton of chances this week and knowing I roll it pretty good, so I would have a good chance. “
“Did just that but didn’t catch my second shot from 18 from the down slope, caught it a little thin, didn’t get enough height for getting up on the green. Actually a pretty accessible pin. All I needed was a solid strike to get up there and good feed in and have a good chance at winning.”
Heath Slocum was own his own in fourth position at -15 under par, following his last round of -3 under par 67.
