TaylorMade-adidas Golf Tour Staffer Camilo Villegas wins Wyndham Championship with Tour Preferred Irons and Wedges and adidas Golf gripmore Footwear

Carlsbad, Calif. (August 17, 2014) – In the PGA TOUR’s final tournament before the FedExCup Playoffs, it was TaylorMade-adidas Golf Tour staffer Camilo Villegas (@CamiloVillegasR) who emerged victorious, taking advantage of prime scoring opportunities to win the Wyndham Championship by one stroke at Sedgefield Country Club.

What You Need to Know:

· TaylorMade ranked #1 with 75 drivers, 90 fairway woods and 42 iron sets in play

· Villegas’ victory is the 37th worldwide win (all tours) for TaylorMade Drivers and the 10th on PGA TOUR in 2014

Off the tee, the 32-year-old Columbian used his JetSpeed driver, hitting long and accurate drives off the tee to set himself up for multiple scoring opportunities around the greens. He made the change to the driver at this year’s Humana Challenge and has kept it in the bag since. Villegas also gamed the Tour Preferred CB irons (5-pw), which he added to his bag at the same time as his JetSpeed driver. His first win of the 2014 PGA TOUR season is another for the revolutionary speed pocket technology found in TaylorMade’s Tour Preferred irons. Villegas also played TaylorMade’s new Tour Preferred golf ball, engineered for players seeking more spin on iron shots.

In addition to his Tour Preferred Irons, Villegas also played three of the new TaylorMade Tour Preferred Wedges (ATV Grind). Available with two sole options (Classic and ATV Grind), the Tour Preferred wedges are classically designed wedges that combine timeless shaping and performance that meets the demand of the world’s best players.
