For Villegas, 28, the final birdie was rife with symbolism. It put a fitting close to a week that began with his journey home to Colombia — to help kick off the Nationwide Tour Pacific Rubiales Bogota Open, his country’s first officially sponsored PGA Tour event — and ended with his third and most convincing victory on the PGA Tour. And it came by a record score of 13-under-par 267 at the PGA National Resort and Spa.
“It’s been a long week, man, but, man, it’s been a good one — I just loved every second of it,” Villegas said moments after he made his fifth birdie in a final-round 68 and celebrated by raising his arms. “First Nationwide Tour event in my country, and then just coming out here and taking care of business today.
“Like I said yesterday, tournaments are four rounds, and I played three pretty good ones and was lacking one. Then I did that today.”
