GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Camilo Villegas ended a four-year victory drought on Sunday when he won the Wyndham Championship.

Villegas closed with a 63, his second round of 7 under this week at Sedgefield Countrry Club, to move to 17 under. Villegas, who teed off 50 minutes ahead of the leaders, then had to wait in the scoring area to see it there would be a playoff.

Heath Slocum was the first to blink when he bogeyed the 17th hole and dropped out of a share of the lead. A three-putt at No. 18 then knocked him out of the FedExCup Playoffs, dropping him from 120th to 130th in the projections.

Slocum's playing partner Freddie Jacobson was tied for the lead when he teed off at the 18th hole. But the Swede barely made the fringe with his approach, then sent his first putt 10 feet past the hole and made bogey to drop back into a tie for second.

Nick Watney, who had been tied at 17 under through 13 holes, was the last man with a chance but he needed a birdie at the 18th hole. He hit his drive right and out-of-bounds, though, and Villegas' fourth PGA TOUR win was in the books.  

Bill Haas also had a chance to move into a tie with Villegas had he been able to birdie the 18th hole. But he missed a 33-footer there and made par, ending up playing that hole in 3 over for the week.

Haas, who closed with a 66, and Jacobson tied for second while Slocum was alone in fourth at 15 under. Watney, the overnight leader who shot even par on Sunday, tied for fifth at 14 under with Brandt Snedeker and Webb Simpson, who each had 67s in the final round.
