Feb. 19, 2012
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Former Indiana standout Jorge Campillo fired a final round 67 en route to a tie for second at the Avantha Masters on the European Tour over the weekend in New Delhi, India. Campillo's strong finish propelled him to 13th in the European Tour's Race To Dubai rankings.
Campillo finished the tournament at 12-under (72-71-66-67---276) and two shots back of winner Jbe Kruger. Campillo's 67 on Sunday tied for the lowest score of the final round.
The runner-up showing marks the best finish of his European Tour career. He has made the cut in four out of five events this season after earning his tour card following a stellar Challenge Tour season in 2011.
Campillo was a two-time All-American during his career in Bloomington. His Hoosier career included a second place finish at the 2008 NCAA Tournament, a Big Ten championship, two Big Ten Player of the Year awards, and the 2008 Indiana Male Athlete of the Year.
