GREENSBORO, N.C. -- A new champion was crowned at the Wyndham Championship Sunday on WFMY News 2.

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.

The Colombian had four birdies and an eagle on the front nine, added a birdie on the par-5 15th and took the lead into the clubhouse. He then watched the rest of the field stumble late, giving him his fourth PGA Tour title and first since the 2010 Honda Classic.

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

Bill Haas (-16)

Freddie Jacobson (-16)

Nick Watney (-16)

Heath Slocum (-15)
