Camilo Visits Canada
Newmarket, ON (July 22, 2009) - FJ staffer Camilo Villegas visited Golf Town Mississauga in front of an energetic on Tuesday before taking on the Canadian Open field at Glen Abbey Golf Club this week.
Emcee, Bob Weeks from Score Golf had both the crowd and Camilo laughing a number of times throughout the event. For the hundreds in attendance, Camilo answered a number of unique questions that ranged from his time growing up as a junior golfer in Colombia to his patented "Spider" pose used when lining up seemingly flat putts. Camilo found humor in the close resemblance the "Spider" pose had to Bob's curling stance after a full demonstration to the crowd. Of course, curling was not exactly something Camilo was familiar with growing up in Colombia. The loyal fans who came out were not disappointed as Camilo was happy to chat, sign autographs and pose for pictures throughout the day. FootJoy wishes Camilo best of luck at the RBC Canadian Open this week.
The 3:00PM start time didn't stop loyal fans from waiting in line as early a noon to make sure they gained access to the autograph session.
