Why does Villegas dislike Tiger Woods?

The Colombian PGA golfer, Camilo Villegas, revealed some unknown facts about Tiger Woods during an interview on GOLF’s Subpar podcast. He spilled the beans about his relationship with the former no.1 and said he feels’ trapped’ with the legendary golfer. Villegas regrets teeing up alongside the greatest golfer. But why? Because he does not want to be trapped or overshadowed.

During the interview, he went honestly and said he does not spend much time with Woods. He did not like the fact that the person closer to the G.O.A.T. was getting trapped by the media. Villegas did not want to be trapped in a golfer’s life but wanted to make his own identity. He said“All the eyes were on Tiger, then you see the guys who are close to him, and they get trapped from a media point of view to the Tiger life, and I didn’t want that.” He only got closer to the PGA golfer when he played a few practice rounds with him.

On the other hand, Justin Thomas, has excellent relations with Woods. They have a sibling-like relationship where the 15 times major championship winner treats Thomas as his younger brother. They spend much time together practicing, and Woods’ son, Charlie joins them.
