Just a few months after her daughter’s death, Camilo Villegas (38) is ravaging the PGA Tour. He has Mia with him in mind on the golf course. She was only 22 months old.

2020 has been an “annus horribilis” for many, and for golf star Camilo Villegas, the last few months have been extra heavy.

The Colombian has impressed a lot during the PGA tournament on the Sea Island course in Georgia in the USA this week, and with him in mind are some very special ones.

This summer, Villegas and his wife experienced all parents’ nightmares. The golfer had lost the entire 2019 season and was fighting to get rid of a shoulder injury when the pain got much worse. Their only daughter, Mia, had developed tumors in both her brain and spine.

In July, the then almost two-year-old girl died while undergoing chemotherapy.

– It was inspiring to see my little girl fight. I knew this would be tough, Villegas said in his first TV interview earlier this season, before he has to take a short break to dry his tears.

Only one month after his death, he was back on the golf course, and this weekend he is in action again.

Villegas had his brother, Manny, who is also his caddy, by his side as he warmed up on the field in Georgia on Thursday. There he also had a moment to himself, where he thought of his daughter while studying the rainbow.

– She loves colors and the rainbow. It was a great way to start the day, the golfer tells

.

Villegas wants to look ahead, but brings with him the memories of his daughter.

– I can not change the past, and since I can not, I choose to focus on the present, Villegas told about the moment during the warm-up.

– It’s not about forgetting, because you never forget your daughter. It’s about being in the moment, what’s happening here and now. It does not happen with her, but at the same time she is here, the 38-year-old said emotionally after a glorious day on the field.
