LEMONT, Ill. – Camilo Villegas made a late charge to climb into the top 30 in FedExCup points, but a bogey at the par-4 18th hole likely will prevent him from advancing to next week’s TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola.
Villegas missed a four-foot par putt at 18th, his only bogey on a back nine in which he had produced five birdies in a seven-hole stretch that moved him briefly into the top 30.
After his bogey, Villegas is now projected to finish 37th. He started the week 47th in points.
A par at 18 may not have kept Villegas alive for the Playoffs. He likely needed to birdie the 18th to give himself a shot. But a poor drive prevented him from finding the green with his second shot. He made a nice chip in an attempt to save par, but couldn’t hole the short putt.
