Villegas Wins Honda Classic Title





Villegas Wins Honda Classic Title

Colombian golfer Camilo Villegas landed the Honda Classic title at Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, after holding off a European challenge led by Justin Rose.

However Villegas was not prepared to let his hard-earned lead slip away and he won by five shots from second-placed American Anthony Kim, landing his third PGA Tour title and a million-dollar pay day. Villegas did drop three strokes in five holes on the back nine, however he finished in style with a long putt for birdie at the 18th to card a round of 68 and a total of 13 under for his week. That score put him five shots in front of Kim, who followed up yesterday’s disappointing 73 with a much-improved 67.

Rose shot a sparkling six-under-par 64 in his final round to jump to third place on seven under for the tournament, and fellow Englishman Paul Casey finished a shot behind in a share of fourth place with Fiji’s Vijay Singh.

Casey, who followed his opening 73 with a second-round 64, again went under par today with a classy 67 which included four birdies in five holes from the 12th to 16th.

Singh’s challenge faltered as he made bogeys at 15, 16 and 17 in a two-over round of 72.

Sweden’s Fredrik Jacobson shared sixth place with American Michael Connell after carding 69 for the fourth successive round.
