On his first start in the UBS Hong Kong Open since 2013, Jorge Campillo authored a 4-under-par 33-33=66 in round one, good enough for T3 and just two back from the lead.
The Spaniard finished T24 on debut three years ago but left with good vibes after recovering from an first-round 73 with rounds of 65, 69, 69. His Thursday lap today was seven shots better than his 2013 opener so he now has the chance to make a title bid as opposed to playing catch-up. One of the wave to start at the 11th, Campillo birdied the 426-yard par 4 and followed it with another circle at 12. He quietened after that with a birdie at 16 being negated by a bogey at 1 but another pair of birdies at 7 and 8 ensured a pleasing start. The 30-year-old enjoyed his best season on the European Tour in 2016, finishing 42nd on the Race to Dubai. Dec 8 - 6:01 AM

Jorge Campillo heads to The Earth Course at Jumeirah Golf Estates to make his debut in the DP World Tour Championship, Dubai

The 30-year-old from Caceres, Spain is relatively unknown and yet this season might herald a move up in class in 2017. He graduated from the Challenge Tour in 2011 (ranking 9th) since when he has quietly, with little fuss, retained his card every year, but this is the first time he has breached the lucrative top 60 in the rankings, earning with it a spot in this event, and the prospect of a big pay day with a smart finish. His next aim should be a win – he's yet to notch one on either the top two Euro circuits. However it's unlikely to come this week, not just because of the gulf in class. He did finish T9 in the 2013 Abu Dhabi Golf Championship but it's his only result better than T20 in 14 attempts in the Middle East at this level and this week marks his debut in the tournament.

A late error cost Jorge Campillo a share of T2 in the Turkish Airlines Open; he eventually carded a 2-under-par 31-38=69 at Regnum Carya Golf & Spa Resort.

The Spaniard hits the halfway point on 7-under 135, good enough for T8, eight shots behind the leader Thorbjorn Olesen, but it could have been just six were it not for a double bogey on the final hole, a poor end to what had been a day of solid progress. It has begun with five birdies in the first 12 holes at the 3rd, 5th, 9th, 10th and 12th. But the rot set in with a bogey-5 at 13 and was completed with that final hole catastrophe: six hacks when the par is four. The Spaniard finished T20 in this event in 2014 and still has the opportunity to improve on that at the weekend.

Jorge Campillo aced the par-3 14th hole at Regnum Carya Golf & Spa Resort and signed for a 5-under-par 33-33=66 in round one of the Turkish Airlines Open.

That's good enough for T3 on the leaderboard and only two behind pacesetter George Coetzee. The Spaniard registered the 39th hole-in-one of the European Tour season by draining his tee shot with an 8-iron from 168 yards. Despite the adrenaline pumping, he was calm enough to add a birdie at the next (par-5 15th) and three closing pars took him to a 66. Campillo had earlier picked up shots at 4 and 5 before making his only bogey of the day at 9. He started this opening event of the Final Series at 42nd on the Race to Dubai.
Nov 3 - 9:01 AM

Jorge Campillo remains on track to reach the season-ending DP World Tour Championship for the first time and continues his 2016 campaign with a start at this week's Turkish Airlines Open.

The Spaniard is 41st on the Race to Dubai so comfortably inside the top 60 who will head to Dubai at the end of the three-tournament Final Series. Campillo made his debut in this event last year and shot 69-70-72-68 to take a share of 20th spot at the Montgomerie Maxx. Like most in this week's field, this will be his first look at the new venue, the Regnum Carya Golf & Spa Resort. He'll head there on the back of three top 25s in his last six starts. That includes T7 in the Italian Open and T18 in the British Masters.

Jorge Campillo striped all 14 fairways on his way to a 6-under-par 31-35=66 in the second round of the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open at Castle Stuart Golf Links.

His 36-hole total of 6-under 138 leaves him T4, 2 behind the leader Alex Noren. For much of the day, which began at the 10th, that straight driving kept him out of trouble, as he made consecutive birdies at 12 and 13, before adding eagle-birdie at 15 and 16. Another red number at No. 6 promised contention for the lead only for him to drop the only shot of the day at the very next hole. But he wasted no time getting it back with a second 2 of the week at No. 8. His 12th European Tour start in Scotland, he is yet to break the top 15 and has finished better than T40 only twice.
Jul 8 - 2:16 PM

Jorge Campillo has two top 20s in four starts at Le Golf National and heads back this week to contest the 100th Open de France.

The Spaniard failed to cash on his first peek in 2012 but posted T18 the following year. After a missed cut in 2014 he produced his best so far to grab a share of 15th last year after closing with a 69. Campillo has enjoyed a solid run of results this season with six top 20s in 10 starts from January's Qatar Masters to May's BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth. Two missed cuts on his most recent starts (Nordea Masters and BMW International Open) are a concern and it's fair to say that his inability to land the really big cheques (he has just one finish better than T10 this year) makes him a slight frustrating proposition for gamers and bettors.
Jun 29 - 6:58 AM

Jorge Campillo rode a hot start and signed for a 5-under-par 31-36=67 on day two of the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth, the low round so far on Friday.

That's catapulted the Spaniard up 28 spots on the live leaderboard to solo fifth, four shots behind clubhouse leader Danny Willett. Campillo took advantage of the easier conditions on the front nine by circling birdies at 2, 3, 4 and 6 to turn in 4-under 31. He gave one back at the 10th but splashed further red at 12 and 15 before closing with a trio of pars to slot in at 6-under 138. He compiled his best score in five visits to Wentworth with 5-for-7 scrambling, splitting 9 (of 14) fairways and hitting 11 greens in regulation. After a double bogey-7 at the 17th in round one, he'll be delighted to be so close to the lead.
May 27 - 11:47 AM

Jorge Campillo had to grind it in round two at the Hero Indian Open but he achieved it, posting 1-under-par 35-36=71 for a 7-under 137.

The round was good enough to leave him in a tie for 4th after the morning wave. He opened with 8 straight pars before circling red on the par-5s at 18 and 1, but he closed with a bogey on the 9th. His career boasts a couple of results that hint at his success so far this week: he was 2nd at the 2012 Avantha Masters, also in India, and was T3 in the 2015 Africa Open, played on the fast running East London course, not a million miles from the conditions at Delhi. The Spaniard is yet to win on the European Tour.
Mar 18 - 4:22 AM

Jorge Campillo hung up a 6-under-par 33-33=66 in his opening round at the Hero Indian Open, good enough for a share of second place after day one.

The in-form Spaniard, who has posted T19 and T4 in the last two co-sanctioned events played in Asia, is just one behind leader Daniel Im after his afternoon lap of Delhi GC. Campillo opened with a birdie at the first and added another pair at 5 and 6. On the back nine he circled red at 10, 11 and 17. He could only find half of the 14 fairways today but hit 13 greens in regulation and took just 25 putts. This puts him in position to record a first European Tour win. Notably, one of his two second places came in India at the 2012 Avantha Masters.
Mar 17 - 9:19 AM

Jorge Campillo has three top 20s in his last four European Tour starts and could be an outsider to look out for in the Hero Indian Open.

The Spaniard posted T19 in last week's True Thailand Classic and that came after a T4 at the Maybank Championship Malaysia. Two starts earlier he was T20 in the Qatar Masters. Add in his strong finish to 2015 and he has six top 20s in his last 10 starts so is in some of the most consistent form of his career. Adding to his credentials is a second place at the 2012 Avantha Masters which was also played in India. Campillo posted T52 in this event last year.
Mar 16 - 9:54 AM

Jorge Campillo kept his hopes of a first European Tour win alive after posting a 2-under-par 35-34=69 in Saturday's third round at the Maybank Championship Malaysia in Kuala Lumpur.

A walk-off birdie at 18 saw the Spaniard park up at 10-under 203, four swings behind surprise leader Soomin Lee. Campillo has just three players above him on the leaderboard after a lap of Royal Selangor that featured four birdies against two bogeys. He shot his third round in the 60s thanks largely to a sharp short game. He piped just 7 (of 14) fairways and hit only 11 greens in regulation but the 29-year-old got up and down five times out of seven.
Feb 20 - 5:31 AM

Jorge Campillo crashed a 2-under-par 35-34=69 for a halfway total of 8-under 134 at the Maybank Championship Malaysia.

The Spaniard made just one bogey in round one, but made three in his first eight holes on Friday, at 1, 6 and 8. But he added red at 2, 4 and 9 to make up for it. The turn gave him the chance to pull himself together and he did so, keeping bogeys off the card and notching birdies at 11 and 14 to join Danny Willett, Soomin Lee and Miguel Tabuena on 8-under in the clubhouse. It was a fighting round in which he hit only 4 of 14 fairway and was 0-for-4 in Scrambling.
Feb 19 - 3:11 AM

Jorge Campillo sits in a tie for second spot after round one of the Maybank Championship Malaysia thanks to an opening 6-under-par 32-33=65.

Four birdies in his opening six holes thrust the Spaniard up the leaderboard and, despite a bogey at 17, he maintained his push with further par breakers at 18, 3 and 8. Campillo was T20 at the Qatar Masters two starts ago while he posted T12 in last month's South African Open so this is a continuation of that good form. His lowest round of the season so far puts the former Indiana University grad just a shot behind leader Nathan Holman. Campillo hit only 12 greens in regulation today but was hot on the greens, taking just 24 putts.
Feb 18 - 6:13 AM

Jorge Campillo will play in his fifth straight Joburg Open at Royal Johannesburg & Kensington GC this week.

It took a while for the Spaniard to find his feet there after missed cuts in both 2012 and 2013 but the following year he shot all four rounds under par to post T16. He opened with a 66 in 2015 before settling for T32. He'll return there on the back of a heartening T12 in last week's BMW South African Open which represented a third top 20 from his last four worldwide starts.
