Jorge Campillo compiled a 3-under-par 34-34=68 in his closing round at the Tshwane Open in South Africa to finish at 15-under 269, good enough for a share of second spot with Mikko Korhonen and three behind winner Dean Burmester.
A late flurry of birdies at 14, 16 and 17 (the first two on par 3s) at Pretoria CC gave the Spaniard his third runner-up finish on the European Tour and two have now come in South Africa (other was the 214 Nelson Mandela Championship). This was his fourth top 25 in six starts this season and he's not yet missed a cut. Campillo was just a single stroke back at start of play but couldn't live with playing partner Burmester's early birdie burst. In fact, with bogeys at 4 and 10 offsetting birdies at 6 and 9, it threatened to be a disappointing conclusion to the week for the World No. 159 but three late circles changed that. Plenty of managers will continue to put him in the "winner waiting to happen" category. Mar 5 - 10:04 AM

Jorge Campillo raced up the leaderboard in round three of the Tshwane Open, carding a 6-under-par 33-33=65 to give him a three-day tally of 12-under 201, currently tied for the lead in the clubhouse with play winding down. UDPATE: With play finished on the day, Campillo finds himself one stroke off the pair of co-leaders at the top.

The Spaniard started the day four strokes adrift overnight co-leaders Alexander Bjork and Scott Jamieson. It didn't look like Campillo would catch them after a ho-hum 2-under 33 on the outward nine but he saved the best for last. The 30-year-old finished his day with a pair of birdies and a closing eagle from holes 16 through 18. The closing train provided a nice boost to DFS owners that benefited from a birdie streak. On the real-life leaderboard, the Spaniard shares the clubhouse lead at the moment and will be chasing his first victory on the European Tour come Sunday.

Jorge Campillo is 5-for-5 at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic and will look to continue his perfect record at Emirates GC this week.

The Spaniard has managed at least one round in the 60s every year since T51 on debut in 2012 although he hasn't been able to string four strong laps together so far. That means his best is 2014's T23 when he posted 68-72-70-69. Campillo looks to be building momentum after kicking off the three-week Desert Swing with T39 in Abu Dhabi and following it with T13 at last week's Qatar Masters where he closed with a 66. His putting stats were strong in both events so it's easy to make a case for a player who continues to improve year on year.

Jorge Campillo surged into a six-way tie for the lead on day two of the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters after hanging up a bogey-free 32-35=67 on Friday to arrive at 8-under 136, a jump of 28 spots up the leaderboard.

He shares top spot with Bradley Dredge, Nacho Elvira, Mikko Korhonen, Andy Sullivan and Thomas Aiken after his morning lap of Doha GC. The Spaniard made his move with circles at 11, 14, 17 and 18 on his opening nine and, after eight pars, added a walk-off birdie at 9. "It was windier today. I played solid," said Campillo. "Missed quite a few fairways but they were in play all the time and I putted well. So it was a good round. It's a tough course today. The back nine plays a little easier than the front nine but it's not easy. The greens are getting harder and the wind is getting stronger, so it's going to be a tough afternoon I think."

After a career-high 42nd on last year's Race to Dubai, Jorge Campillo will hope to push on again in 2017 and bank some big points in this week's Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship.

Spaniards have tended to do well in the desert where they enjoy the familiar sunshine and Campillo made a good impression on his first start in Abu Dhabi with T9 after recovering from an opening 74. However, a failure to break par in round one has cost him on subsequent appearances (49-63-MC since) although he did close with a 66 two years ago. Another promising sign is that the 30-year-old posted T9 at last November's DP World Tour Championship, an event also held in the United Arab Emirates. Campillo shot 68-65 on the weekend in the Euro Tour's season closer and, riding that confidence, finished T10 on his 2017 Race to Dubai opener in Hong Kong the following month. He could be a player to watch this year.
Jan 18 - 7:54 AM

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
