Blemish free

Regular readers would know that I am a big fan of golfer Camilo Villegas; I’ve been following him for quite a while, as you can see here, here and, most recently, here.

Which is why I am pleased to see he’s just moved to the top of the leaderboard at the Deutsche Bank Championship at 16 under par, with a blemish-free 8-under-par round today. He may not win the tournament tomorrow; what he will gain, for sure, is the experience of leading a tournament into the last round. I believe he has already learnt something really important today, by playing a round under pressure without dropping a single shot.

I look forward to cheering him on in the Majors. [Update: If finishing 4th in the USPGA wasn’t enough, he’s going to graduate from a very good school tomorrow. He leads a pack containing winners of eight majors between them: Weir, Els, Singh and Furyk, along with the current holder of the “best golfer never to have won a major” tag, Sergio Garcia.]

  1. Leo, as you may have noticed, while Camilo didn’t win last week, he made up for it this week. The man has real talent, just watch him.

Let me know what you think
