But in February of 2016 Muoz won the Web.com Tour’s Club Colombia Championship thanks to a sponsor invite.
This was the first win ever by a Colombian golfer on the Web.com Tour, and it came in his hometown of Bogotá, earning him a card for the tour.
The 22nd place finish on the money list guaranteed him a spot on the PGA Tour for the upcoming 2017 season.

On the other hand, Antioquian Camilo Villegas, who also qualified for the Olympics, has decided not to compete “due to other personal projects,” as reported by Caracol Radio.
Muoz’s best 2017 performance was a T-3 at the Greenbrier Classic in July. In the first round, he shot a “stunning” 61 and went up by two shots.
The next two rounds he shot 67 and 68, respectively, to keep his lead at one stroke. He lost to Xander Schauffele after shooting a disappointing 72 in the final round.
Muoz’s lone top 10 of the year wasn’t enough to keep his PGA Tour card active. With two second-place finishes and a third-place finish on the Web.com Tour in 2018.
Muoz finished in the top 12 on the money list and was once again promoted to the PGA Tour.
Muoz won his first PGA Tour event, the Sanderson Farms Championship, in Jackson, Mississippi on September 22 of this year (2019). Muoz defeated Im Sung-jae in a tiebreaker. Thanks for reading our article Juan Sebastián Muñoz Tokyo Olympic Games 2020.
