Camilo Villegas says that golf has not been fun in recent years due to poor form on the PGA Tour.

Honda Classic first-round leader Camilo Villegas has reflected on his six-under-par 64 at the PGA National Champion Course in Florida.

The Colombian tops the leaderboard by one shot heading into the second round.

He said that he is "blessed" to be playing a sport that he loves, but admitted that the last few years have been tough with his career taking a nosedive.

The 31-year-old is without a win since the 2010 tournament and has slipped to 279 in the world rankings.

"This game is great when you're playing good," Villegas told reporters.

"When you're out here missing cut after cut - I don't care what people say, yes, we're blessed to have this job, but it's not that much fun."

Villegas has won three PGA Tour titles.
