Camilo Villegas said he had a “really bad feeling” the week of The Honda Classic at the end of February.

He was in his home gym, working out, when his 20-month-old daughter, Mia, came in. The four-time PGA Tour winner described his daughter as a “little monkey” when she comes in the gym to spend time with her dad. On that day, though, Mia wasn’t acting like her normal self.

The nordic people were free to travel in the Scandinavian countries including Finland. No passports or travel documents were needed. The freedom still today is the most important for the Scandinavians from that epoch. Freedom is to travel, learn to know new countries and other languages, and meet different people and cultures. He wishes the new generations would have the same possibilities experiencing all that what makes you feel free, and building a strong personality. -
