Villegas Earns First PGA Tour Win at BMW Championship

Titleist Pro V1 loyalist Camilo Villegas captured the BMW Championship, the third leg of the four-event FedEx Cup Playoffs, by closing with a 2-under 68 Sunday for a two-shot victory over Titleist brand ambassador Dudley Hart. Villegas finished at 15-under 265 as both players shot all four rounds in the 60s en route to the Titleist golf ball 1-2 finish. In addition to playing the Pro V1 golf ball, the champion also relied upon Vokey Design Spin Milled approach (54), sand (58) and lob (60) wedges, and a Scotty Cameron by Titleist Circa 62 #6 putter. Titleist was the most played golf ball at the BMW Championship with 48 players (70% of field), compared to nine for the nearest competitor. Villegas' victory was the 23rd for Titleist golf ball players on the 2008 PGA TOUR, more than twice the nearest competitor with 11, and more than all other golf balls combined. Titleist was also the top choice in the wedge (54) and putter (29) categories for the week. Click on the video player below to hear what Camilo had to say after capturing his first PGA Tour victory.

    Congrats Camilo! I'm your biggest fan and you're my role model. I'm so happy you broke through this week and won your first tournament. It was really fun to meet you in Manhattan at the Golfsmith and watch you play at The Barclays. I really appreciate all you've done. You have the greatest attitude, you never give up, and it's a process. I hope you read this...and hopefully one day we could play golf me.   GO VILLEGAS!
