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.

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.

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.

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.
