Wendy’s 3-Tour Challenge names PGA TOUR Pros
Now celebrating its 16th anniversary, the Wendy’s 3-Tour Challenge, benefiting adoption, is the only professional golf tournament that pits three players from the PGA, LPGA and Champions Tours against each other in a head-to-head competition for tour bragging rights and a share of the $1 million dollar purse. The three PGA TOUR members include Chris DiMarco, Camilo Villegas and Bubba Watson. DiMarco is one of the most consistent PGA TOUR players of the last decade. He has posted 55 top-10 finishes since 1998, including all three of his career victories. DiMarco has recorded three second place finishes in major championships over the past four years (PGA Championship – 2004, Master – 2005, and British Open – 2006) and competed on two U.S. Ryder Cup (2004 & 2006) and two U.S. Presidents Cup teams (2003 & 2005). During the 2005 Presidents Cup DiMarco compiled a 4-0-1 record for the victorious United States squad and sank the Cup-clinching putt. This will be DiMarco’s first Wendy’s 3-Tour Challenge appearance. Camilo Villegas is making his first appearance at the Wendy’s 3-Tour Challenge. He is one of the brightest young stars on the PGA TOUR and has recorded six top-10 finishes so far in 2007, including a runner-up at The Honda Classic. Villegas has a total of three second place finishes since joining the PGA TOUR in 2006 and has two international victories on his resume. The four-time All-American at the University of Florida turned professional in 2004 and played his way onto the PGA TOUR by finishing 13th on the 2005 Nationwide Tour money list.
