Camilo Villegas hasn't won a tournament on the PGA Tour for nine years now. The good opportunity, however, could now come at the World Wide Technology Championship in Los Cabos, Mexico. Here, in fact, the Colombian takes the lead after another great lap, the second, in which he repeats the 64 (-8) of the first.

In essence, in his -16 on Friday he adds an eagle, eight birdies and two bogeys, and someone has rightly defined him as a "birdie machine".

The closest pursuer at the end of the second day (which is not such, officially, only because a group stopped due to darkness at 17, but with no chance of this changing anything in practice) is Matt Kuchar.

For the American -14 which puts him in second position thanks to the new -7 achieved. Behind him, at -13, his compatriot Justin Suh and the German Stephan Jaeger. The best on Friday, however, is in the group of fifths: Will Gordon, in fact, to go to -12 invents a great -9 which allows him to climb 38 places.

With him are Kramer Hickok, Chesson Hadley and the South African Erik van Rooyen. Ludvig Aberg stands out among the ninths: the young Swede rises to -11 at the rate of 65 with which he enters the weekend. He is part of the ninth group, of which he is the only non-American together with the German Matti Schmid; the other members are Carson Young, Doug Ghim, Justin Lower, Jeffrey Kang and Michael Kim.

After yesterday's -10 (62) sharp decline for the Australian Cameron Percy, who drops to 16th place with the same score. The PGA Tour is an organization that hosts major professional golf tours in the United States. It is headquartered in Ponte Vedra Beach, a suburb of Jacksonville, Florida.

Its official name is written in all capital letters, namely "PGA TOUR". The PGA Tour became its own organization in 1968, when it split from the PGA of America, which is now primarily an association of golf professionals, such as instructors and club managers.

The tournament players first formed their own organization, the Association of Professional Golfers (APG). Subsequently, in 1968, the players abolished the APG and agreed to operate as the PGA "Tournament Players Division", a completely autonomous division of the PGA, under the supervision of a new 10-member Tournament Policy Board.
