In-form Jorge Campillo completed a strong week at his home Open de España with a closing 3-under-par 34-35=69, nudging two spots up the final leaderboard to tied fifth on 15-under 273.
That was five shots behind winner and compatriot Jon Rahm and made Campillo one of three home Spanish players to crack the top five. He needed to go super-low on Sunday to have any hope of snatching his first European Tour win and set out in ideal fashion with a trio of opening birdies. Campillo wasted that fast start with dropped shots at 4 and 6 before adding another circle at 7. He was quieter on the inward nine but, after trading a single birdie at 13 with a bogey at 14, Campillo climbed to T5 with a walk-off gain at 18. The win still won't come but this follows T4 in the Oman Open and second spot in the Maybank Championship so three top fives in four starts represent the most consistent spell of his career since he came on Tour in 2009.

Jorge Campillo's superb start to the season continued with T4 in the NBO Oman Open, earned with a final round of 4-under-par 35-33=68 for 11-under 277, five swings back of the winner Joost Luiten at Al Mouj Golf in Muscat.

Through ten holes on Sunday the Spaniard was treading water having exchanged two birdies (at 3 and 8, the latter a chip-in) with dropped shots at 6 and 10. But he accelerated to the finish with an eagle-3 at the 543-yard par-5 12th followed by birdies at 13 and 15. He missed the cut in Hong Kong and Dubai, but this result sits alongside T12 in the South African Open, T14 in the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship and T2 in the Maybank Championship, all good for a strong top ten presence in the Race to Dubai.

Jorge Campillo claimed a fourth European Tour second place finish with his final round 4-under-par 34-34=68 coming up two short of Shubhankar Sharma's winning total on 19-under 269 in the Maybank Championship at Saujana G&CC.

The Spaniard's trophy cupboard remains bare yet this was further proof that he is a solid performer who will surely find the missing ingredient sooner or later. Indeed, this was among his finest performances with the winning line in sight and he started it in absolutely perfect fashion with an eagle-3 at the 534-yard par-5 first hole. The long holes were good to him all week on the front nine and he added birdie at No. 5 (he was 9-under on the first and fifth through the week). A bogey at the ninth stalled his bid as ahead of him Sharma burned up the course and through the first seven holes of the back nine Campillo failed to make any headway. Par breakers at 17 and 18 lifted him clear of the chasing pack but the winning chance had gone by then.

Jorge Campillo is yet to win in 195 starts on the European Tour but he could put that right at the Maybank Championship in Malaysia after moving into a share of the lead after 54 holes thanks to a third-round bogey-free 6-under-par 32-34=66.

That flawless lap of Saujana G&CC put the Spaniard at 15-under 201 and tied for T1 with South African Dylan Frittelli, his playing partner on Saturday. On a cramped leaderboard, Khalin H Joshi and Berry Henson are a stroke back while the top 25 are covered by just four shots. Campillo got the ideal start with an eagle-3 at No. 1 and added red circles at 5 and 7 (tap-in) to be out in 32. Coming home, he added birdies at 13 and 16 and, for the second day running, kept a bogey off his card. "It was good," he said. "I played solid for most of the round. I had a few tough holes but I managed to make the putts so overall I played solid. It is a good day. I’m really looking forward to tomorrow. It is a nice position to be and I’m excited."
Feb 3 - 3:15 AM

Jorge Campillo will look to get back on the form horse in the Maybank Championship at Saujana G&CC in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

A neat start to the year (T12 in South Africa, T14 in Abu Dhabi) was somewhat marred by a missed cut in Dubai, but that shouldn't be a major concern. It all fitted a pattern: The Spaniard is good at ticking off results which earn cards, but less sure in contention. Abu Dhabi was the third time he has been T2 or better at halfway. Every time he's shot 73+ to fall backwards and his one 54-hole stage T2 was followed by a 72 for T5. It makes him a conundrum for gamers, especially, perhaps, this week, given he was T4 in this event two years ago (at Templar Park) and then T55 at Saujana last year. That sample size of being timid in the heat of battle is small. Too much so? He's clearly got something about him.

Jorge Campillo heads to this week's Omega Dubai Desert Classic at Emirates GC on the back of a pair of top 15s over the last fortnight.

The Spaniard shot three 70s and a Saturday 67 for T12 at the South African Open and then added T14 at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship to move up to 28th on the Race to Dubai. He was ranked 9th and 11th for greens in regulation respectively in those two events. And yet, Campillo still gives the impression he wilts when flying close to the sun. Last week in Abu Dhabi, he was second at halfway but could only manage 2-under on the weekend when the tournament reached the business end. He's 6-for-6 in this event, with T23 in 2014 and again last year his best two finishes. Campillo is certainly reliable but he struggles to land the big cheques.
Jan 24 - 6:53 AM

A pair of closing birdies gave Jorge Campillo the joint-lowest round of the week so far at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship, the Spaniard completing an excellent bogey-free second lap of 8-under-par 33-31=64 to vault into solo second place and just one behind clubhouse leader Thomas Pieters.

On his way to 11-under 133, Campillo birdied all four par 5s on Friday, a stark contrast to his opening 69 when he didn't pick up a shot on any of the long holes. The 31-year-old, who is still looking for his first European Tour win, started his birdie charge with back-to-back gains at 2 and 3 before quietening with four pars. But from that point he ticked six of his final 11 holes (8, 10, 11, 14, 17 and 18) to pull to within a shot of the lead. He said: "I hit all of the fairways, a lot of greens and I make the putts that I have to make. It was a nice day to shoot low and I played good. I played good last week (T12 South African Open). Practising hard this winter and I'm glad the work is paying off."

Jorge Campillo will look to build on a promising record in the UBS Hong Kong Open at Hong Kong Golf Club in Fanling this week.

A third visit for the Spaniard and it's not hard to see why. On debut in 2013 he struggled in round one with a 73 for T99, but bounced back with a 65 to make the cut and two 69s at the weekend, ending the tournament T24. Last year he opened with a 66 for T3 before adding 71-70-67 to finish T10. He is one of the quiet achievers on tour. In fact he embarking on a seventh straight season with a full European Tour card. He's played well in Asia (T2 2012 Avantha Masters at DLF, T4 2016 Maybank Championship at Royal Selangor) and tight tracks (T7 2016 Italian Open at GC Milano) so it's not entirely surprising he's enjoyed this venue.

Jorge Campillo will have plenty of home support this week as he heads back to his native Spain to contest the Andalucia Valderrama Masters.

Campillo is one of 15 Spaniards in the field and will hope for a better experience than on his course debut last year. In a tournament won with one-over, the brutal conditions at Valderrama proved too tough as he fired 78-75 to exit after 36 holes. As well as trying to perform in front of his home fans, Campillo has the added incentive of the Race to Dubai. Right now, he occupies the 60th and final slot for entry to the season-ending DP World Championship in Dubai so needs to keep pushing. He's played the last five European Tour events and made the cut in four but a best of T29 in Portugal has done little to advance his position. T7 in the 2015 Open de Espana is his best previous finish on home soil.

Jorge Campillo's only top 25 in six starts at the KLM Open came at The Dutch last year; he'll look for more success at the new course this week.

The Spaniard had struggled at Kennemer (47-58-MC-MC) and Hilversumsche (MC) but shot consistent rounds of 70-68-69-70 at The Dutch 12 months ago to take T24. He returns on the back of a disappointing missed cut at the Omega European Masters in Switzerland, his fourth early exit in seven strokeplay starts since the start of June. That underwhelming summer run means he's 60th on the Race to Dubai after cashing in 13 of his 19 starts. It puts him right on the bubble for a place in the season-ending DP Tour Championship so Campillo will want to climb the rankings with just eight more tournaments before the the final event. He has incentive and course form but his current play isn't convincing.

Jorge Campillo is 0-for-2 at the Porsche European Open but the new venue could boost his chances this week.

This year the tournament switches to the North Course at Green Eagle GC and the Spaniard played there when it held a Challenge Tour event in 2010, finishing T34. Campillo has been rather hit-and-miss for managers since finishing runner-up at March's Tshwane Open. Since then, he's missed half his 10 cuts but finished T26 or better in four of his other five starts. The latest was T26 in the Scottish Open where his game looked in good shape (fifth on the All-Around). Campillo was T20 in June's BMW International Open on his last trip to Germany and heads back slotted in at 52nd on the Race to Dubai (16 starts).

Jorge Campillo will now partner Pablo Larrázabal at the GolfSixes in England after Alejandro Cañizares was unable to take his place in the Spanish team.

Campillo had been due to sit this one out but Cañizares is suffering from an injury to his left wrist. This will hardly weaken Spain's bid for glory in the European Tour's newest event as Campillo finished T9 in last week's Volvo China Open, four shots behind partner Larrázabal, who took solo third. Spain take on Thailand in their Group B Opener at 11:00 local time before further six-hole matches against Scotland and Belgium. Campillo is 34th on the Race to Dubai and has three top 20s in his last five starts. He's also finished in the top 20 in his last two appearances in England but this will be his first crack at pairs golf as a pro.

Jorge Campillo made a rough start and finish, yet still posted 4-under-par 34-34=68 in round one of the Volvo China Open at Topwin Golf & CC.

The Spaniard began his tour from the 10th tee and made bogey there. He then closed out his round with blue at No. 9, but in between it was all sweetness and light as he carded three birdies on the back nine (at 11, 12 and 18) then three on the front (at 4, 7 and 8). The score left him T5, yet five back of the early pace-setter Alex Levy on a day of low scoring. His career-best finish in China was this season's T10 in the Hong Kong Open, but he missed the cut last week in Shenzhen with rounds of 72-76.

After shooting 72-76 to miss the cut in last week's Shenzhen International, Jorge Campillo will aim to get back on track in the Volvo China Open at Topwin Golf & CC in Beijing.

The Spaniard enjoyed a run of seven top 25s in 11 starts from October to March but has wobbled recently by failing to cash in two of his last three tournaments. However, between those early exits he was T19 in the Trophee Hassan II and in early March the 30-year-old was runner-up at the Tshwane Open so he can't be too far off. Campillo had struggled previously in this event (MC-MC-64-MC) but played well when the tournament moved to Topwin for the first time last year. He opened 70-67-68 to sit T12 with 18 holes to play but then carded a disappointing 73 in his closer to finish T34.

Jorge Campillo smoothed a 4-under-par 36-33=69 to rise over 40 spots on the live leaderboard at the Trophee Hassan II; his 36-hole total of 3-under 143 sends him into the weekend in the top ten at Royal Golf Dar Es Salam.

The 30-year-old Spaniard was T2 at the Tshwane Open in early March, but just five days later posted an 80 in the Indian Open to miss the cut. He appears to have used the subsequent downtime to re-tune his game. He knocked off the rust with a 74 in round one then moved into contention on Friday. Starting from the tenth tee he made an immediate move with a birdie-4, but then made bogeys at 13 and 15; no matter he bounced back both times with red numbers. The front nine was all about moving forward. He made eagle-3 at the 587-yard par-5 fifth then rounded off his day with a rare birdie-2 at the island green par-3 ninth. He lies three behind the clubhouse leader Gregory Havret.
