Villegas claims one-stroke victory at Wyndham

GREENSBORO, N.C. — Camilo Villegas won the Wyndham Championship by a stroke Sunday for his first PGA Tour victory since 2010.

Villegas shot a 7-under 63 and finished at 17-under 263. He earned $954,000 and 500 FedEx Cup points in the final regular-season event.

Bill Haas and Freddie Jacobson tied for second. Haas had a 64, and Jacobson shot 66.

Jacobson needed a par on the final hole to force a playoff, but he rolled his 11-foot putt inches past the hole.

Ben Curtis (Kent State) shot a 3-under 67 in Sunday’s final round to finish at 5-under 275 for the tournament. Curtis earned $14,257.
