Villegas laps the field en route to Honda victory

Wow. Camilo Villegas, the golfing phenomenon of Colombia, managed to rout a strong field at the Honda Classic in Florida after entering Sunday with a respectable three stroke lead.

In the end, Villegas emerged victorious (for surprisingly only the third time in his PGA Tour career) by posting a 72 hole score of -13. American young gun Anthony Kim finished five strokes back - that's right, by the way - in second place.

Several international stars including Vijay Singh and Paul Casey who trailed Villegas last night failed to make a significant move up the leaderboard. However, England's Justin Rose climbed to third place after finishing his final round with a -6 score (to finish at -7 for the week).

Last year's Honda champion Y.E. Yang was unable to make the cut.

As an aside, I should note that I have been a Villegas fan since he was attending the University of Florida. With this momentum, I am hoping the long-hitting Colombian can finally really be a threat to win a major championship, especially we head toward the Masters.
