Camilo Villegas he’s very close to getting his full card back on the PGA Tour, after finishing in the 11th box of the Valspar Championship. However, the Colombian golfer was forced to make a decision regarding his participation, starting this Thursday, in the Wells Fargo Championship.
Villegas was in the tournament field thanks to an invitation from the organizers, since he had already completed the number of contests to which he had access due to the medical exemption granted him for his shoulder injury.
However, the Antioqueño decided not to play this week, due to back pain.
“I had a good week, the truth is I have had a little back pain, I barely hit the drive on the 18th, I gave thanks that I didn’t have to hit any more drives, I didn’t feel very well on the court,” Villegas had said Sunday. “I plan to play next week, but I am going to go home to check the back how it is and hopefully it is nothing serious,” he added.
Villegas occupies box 96 of the FedEx Cup, with 371 points. The calculation is that with 400 he can make the playoffs.
