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.

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.

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.
Jan 13 - 5:07 AM

Jorge Campillo has made the top 25 in both his starts at Glendower and returns again this year to contest the BMW South African Open.

The Spaniard took T25 last year and was also T22 on debut. Those results are part of an impressive run of results in South Africa which include a third place in last year's Africa Open and a T2 at the 2013 Nelson Mandela Championship. Former Indiana University grad Campillo had his best season in terms of earnings last year and also posted a career-high 74th on the Race to Dubai. He's made the top 100 for the last four years but, ahead of his 30th birthday this summer, will feel it's now time to kick on.
Jan 5 - 7:20 AM

Jorge Campillo teed it up 31 times on last season's Race to Dubai but is back for more as the 2016 European Tour schedule begins in South Africa this week.

The Alfred Dunhill Championship at Leopard Creek is the opening event once more and the Spaniard will try his luck again after cashing just once (T44 in 2013) in his three starts there. Campillo, who was 74th on the 2015 Race to Dubai, last teed it up at the Turkish Airlines Open four weeks ago and finished T20. Before that he was T6 in the Portugal Masters so he'll be hoping to carry that form over.

Jorge Campillo will hope to turn around his stuttering season in this week's Open d'Italia at Golf Club Milano.

The Spaniard is 77th on the Race To Dubai but has missed his last three cuts in Switzerland, Denmark and the Netherlands. The Indiana University grad doesn't look too far away though having shot a pair of 69s in last week's KLM Open which was just a single shot too many. He's 3-for-3 in this event while he was also runner-up in a Challenge Tour tournament in Italy in 2011.

Jorge Campillo played the last two holes in 3-under to set the clubhouse lead on the first morning of the BMW PGA Championship.

Playing in the first group of the day, the Spaniard posted a 4-under-par 33-35=68 over the West Coast at Wentworth. Campillo had traded three birdies against two bogeys through his first 16 holes but birdied the 17th and closed with an eagle-3 at the last to surge to the top of the leaderboard. The former Indiana standout split 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation. This is his first round in the 60s in nine laps of the course.

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.

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.
