Jorge Campillo turns pro, signs with IMG

This post falls under the “more” category promised by the Scoop, but I thought it was worth sharing nonetheless.

I talked with now-former Indiana men’s golfer Jorge Campillo today. And from his home in Caceres, Spain, Campillo said he recently set his professional career into motion by signing with agency superpower IMG. IMG’s other clients include the likes of Tiger Woods, Peyton Manning and Jeff Gordon.

He also said he will be participating in next weekend’s BMW International Open. The open is one of the most-highly attended events on the European Tour. The tournament will pit Campillo against Jon Daly, Ratief Goosen, Colin Montgomerie and other seasoned vets.

Campillo said he plans to spend his summer on the European Tour before returning to finish school at IU in the fall. After school he intends to take aim at another school – the PGA Tour’s Q-School where he hopes to earn his PGA Tour card.

  1. I understand that this is kind of coming out of left field but I recently read in an article online that IU athletics has turned its financial situation around and is now “in the black”.

    I am glad to hear that, but is there a way for the average Joe to find out specific financial numbers concerning IU’s athletic department? I’m a huge fan and would really like to see what money is coming in that has enabled IU to come out of the red. Thanks.
