LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) Camilo Villegas stopped getting angry and decided to start having more fun. He can only hope the change has come soon enough for him to keep his card.

Villegas ran off three straight birdies late in his round on the Palm Course at Disney for a 7-under 65 to share the early lead Thursday with Tommy Gainey in the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals Classic. It's the final PGA Tour event of the year, and Villegas is in danger of losing his card.

Villegas is at No. 150 on the money list.

Gainey, a winner last month at Sea Island, also had a 65 on the Palm. Even another win wouldn't be enough for him to crack the top 30 and get into the Masters.
