Titleist Pro V1 player Camilo Villegas fired a second round five-under 65 at Royal Birkdale to get back to one-over for the championship and two strokes from the lead after 36 holes. Camilo's round got off to a rough start with bogeys at the first two holes, but he made eight birdies over the final 16 holes, including the last five in a row. Click on the video player below to hear what Camilo had to say about his round.
We followed Camilo on the Friday at Birkdale and at the start it was just me and Camilo along with a few followers. As soon as this guy began to make some birdies, and especially on the final five holes, he began to draw a crowd. I think he did himself a lot of favors and made himself a lot more fans that day. I hope things pan out for Camilo, and he can land his PGA Tour victories, and who knows...maybe a major.

Camilo is a sight to watch. I followed his group at the Deutsche Bank and he hit a dead pull to the left, about 50 yards off to the left of the green, and has a hard shot to the green and puts it about 10 feet. And I'm thinking, the difference between the average golfer and these guys is that anyone can hit a shot 50 yards offline, but pros can make a par or birdie out of it.
