Villegas Practices His Driving—in a BMW
CAMILO VILLEGAS, LAST YEAR’S BMW Championship winner, got in a little driving practice last night. Only he was using a different model: a speedy new BMW.
“PGA Tour pros had the opportunity to race new BMW around the track at the Autobahn Country Club in Joliet, Illinois,” wrote the publicist who sent me these pictures.
A cool perk, eh? It’s not often you get to legally race the courtesy cars.
On the course, Camilo is currently 1-over and hovering near the 30-player cutoff line for making it into the season-ending Tour Championship. Padraig Harrington, Marc Leishman and Tigers Woods are at the top of the leaderboard early in their third rounds.
