World number 25 and three-time winner on the PGA Tour, Camilo Villegas has decided to become a member of the TaylorMade-adidas Golf Tour Staff in 2011.
Villegas has already won on the PGA Tour once this year when he was victorious in The Honda Classic in March. He will join other members of the renowned TaylorMade Tour Staff including Justin Rose, Martin Kaymer, Dustin Johnson, Retief Goosen, Sergio Garcia and Darren Clarke.
This is a coup for TaylorMade as Villegas is one of the most popular players on Tour and has been featured in GQ magazine as well as being named one of People Magazine’s “hottest bachelors” in 2006.
“Camilo is a winner, a gentleman, and a fan favourite,” said Mark King, president and CEO of TaylorMade-adidas Golf. “Cameras tend to find him because he has presence and magnetism that’s impressive and rare.
The Colombian will play TaylorMade clubs, a TaylorMade ball, wear TaylorMade headwear, wear a TaylorMade glove, use a TaylorMade staff bag and wear adidas Golf footwear. More details on this new relationship will be revealed on September 9, 2010.
