MIAMI, Florida — The 22-month-old daughter of Camilo Villegas of Colombia has died from tumours on her brain and spine, the PGA TOUR announced.
Mia Villegas was diagnosed March 14, two weeks after Villegas and his wife, Maria, noticed she wasn't as playful. Tests showed tumours on her brain and spine. She had surgery, and then chemotherapy. The TOUR said she died on the evening of July 26, 2020.
Villegas spoke of his daughter's health when he played at the Korn Ferry Challenge at TPC Sawgrass.
''The PGA TOUR is deeply saddened having lost a member of our family, Mia Villegas,'' Commissioner Jay Monahan said. ''We grieve with Camilo and Maria and our thoughts and prayers are with the Villegas family.''
