Viva la Bogota!

While Camilo Villegas tops the scoreboard after the first round of the Honda Classic, his brother Manuel is slugging it out at the Colombia Championship on the Tour.

Manuel VillegasIt's not like Manuel gets a lot of practice -- at least, not on the Tour. He only played two events on it last year. Still, he's put himself in pretty good position so far. He's -3 after the first round, just 4 off the lead of Danny Lee.

Still, he's got his work cut out for him. Between he and Lee are a number of name players:
  • Sam Saunders (Arnold Palmer's grandson)
  • Shane Bertsch
  • Edward Loar
  • Steve Wheatcroft
  • Alex Rocha
  • Joseph Bramlett
  • Patrick Cantlay
  • Jordan Spieth
just to name a few. And that doesn't count the names you'd recognize who are tied with him, like Will MacKenzie and Matt Goggin.

It'll be interesting to see which of them fares better this week. Camilo gets the nod for the first round since he's -6 and leading the tournament. Manuel is just T15.

Welcome to the high-paying world of sibling rivalry!

Who do you think will finish better? I suspect most people would pick Camilo since he has the most experience. But I'm always reminded of the old joke about Speedy Gonzales and his cousin SlowPoke Rodriguez (from back in the days when nobody worried about being politically correct, and besides, the Villegas brothers aren't Mexican anyway)...

AND THE MORAL IS: Never underestimate little brother!
