In the Beginning
Camilo Villegas Spiderman

The "Spider-Man pose" got its first national TV exposure at the 2006 Doral.

The above photo is from the 2006 Ford Championship at Doral. It was at this tournament that Camilo Villegas' unique style for reading putts first gained a national television audience. Combined with his style, his swagger and his physique, that green-reading contortionism helped make Villegas a fan favorite early in his career.

The 2006 Ford Championship at Doral wasn't the first time Villegas assumed the position, however. He first struck the pose in Nationwide Tour events in 2005.
