Jorge Campillo finished T25 in last week's Shenzhen International and will look for more success in the Volvo China Open.
The Spaniard has been a model of consistency on the European Tour this year, making 10 cuts in 11 starts. His best is a tied third in the Africa Open while another decent showing at Shenzhen secured a fourth top 25 and took him to 55th on the Race to Dubai. The Indiana University grad has struggled in this event with two missed cuts and a modest T64 last year but this will be his first look at Tomson Shanghai Pudong GC. Apr 22 - 5:12 AM

Jorge Campillo posted his best finish of the season via a closing 6-under-par 32-34=66 in the Africa Open at East London GC.

By improving his score each day, the Spaniard climbed to T3 alongside compatriot Eduardo De La Riva and Dane Morten Orum Madsen even though winner Trevor Fisher, Jr. was a distant eight shots in front. Campillo has now made all eight cuts on the European Tour this year but hadn't managed better than a T15 in Malaysia prior to this week's event. An eagle-3 at the opening hole followed by four birdies in his next six holes suggested he might go stupid low on Sunday but bogeys at 9 and 11 put an end to that. Birdies at 12 and 14 put him back on track before he parred his way in. Campillo split 13 (of 15) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation in the final round.

Jorge Campillo lapped East London GC in 4-under-par 34-34=68 to put himself in prominent position at the Africa Open.

The Spaniard has made all three previous cuts in this event and is 7-for-7 on the European Tour this year. Make that 8-for-8 after he improved to 5-under 139 at the midpoint to nestle just inside the top 10 after the completion of the morning wave on day two. Campillo birdied three of the first four holes and added further par breakers at 11 and 14. The only disappointment was a bogey at the closing hole. As is stands, he's six behind clubhouse leader Matt Ford. Despite cashing every week, Campillo hasn't finished better than a T15 in Malaysia so will want to take advantage of this latest opportunity to make a title bid.

Jorge Campillo will make his debut in the Hero Indian Open this week but has some good memories to draw upon.

The Spaniard has played in two previous European Tour events in India and was runner-up in the first of those -- the 2012 Avantha Masters. The former Indiana standout, who was a two-time All-American during his career in Bloomington, is 5-for-5 on the European Tour this season and posted his best finish of the year so far when T15 in last week's True Thailand Classic. He started slowly with a 73 but carded 68-66 over the middle two rounds before closing with a 70 to complete a fine week.

Jorge Campillo and Colin Nel turned in bogey-free, 11-under-par 59s in the second round of the Nelson Mandela Championship in Durban, South Africa.

One of golf's sound barriers is that no one has ever gone sub-60 on the European Tour, and despite the achievement by both golfers at Mount Edgecombe Country Club, the circuit will not honor their scores as official records. This is due to the fact that lift, clean and place was in effect on a soggy course. Think of it as a sprinter that posts a world-record time on a wind-aided track. Campillo holed two eagles and seven birdies en route to respective nines of 31 and 28. He shares the 36-hole clubhouse lead at 11-under 129. Nel's card boasts nines of 29 and 30, respectively, and features one eagle complementing nine birdies. The South African opened with a 77 to reach the midpoint in 4-under 136. The second round is scheduled to resume at 6:00 a.m. local time on Saturday. The tournament was modified to end on Saturday since Mandela's funeral is on Sunday, but as a result of the weather and the priority to conclude in its new time frame, it has been shortened to 54 holes.
