PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. -- The last place Camilo Villegas won might be the next place he wins.
Villegas shot a 64 Thursday at PGA National, where he eagled the par-5 18th to take the lead at The Honda Classic.
The 31-year-old Colombian's last victory was by five strokes here two years ago. In the opening round of this year's tournament, he was nearly as flawless with four birdies and the aforementioned eagle.
Villegas hit 10 of 14 fairways and 14 greens in regulation on his way to just 27 putts, including nine one-putts.
The 65 is his lowest round since a 65 in the opening round of last year's Children's Miracle Network Hospitals Classic.
Villegas leads Branden Grace and Graham DeLaet by a stroke and a number of others, including Dustin Johnson and Rickie Fowler by two.
