Campillo shares lead in China, 4 days after win in Morocco

SHENZHEN, China — Spanish golfer Jorge Campillo began his bid for back-to-back European Tour titles by shooting 7-under 65 to share the lead with two other players after the first round of the Volvo China Open on Thursday.

Four days after winning the Trophee Hassan II in Morocco for his first victory on tour, Campillo made five birdies and an eagle in a bogey-free round at the Genzon Golf Club.

David Lipsky, a winner this season at the Alfred Dunhill Championship, and Tapio Pulkkanen also shot 65s.

The trio is a stroke clear of 2015 winner Wu Ashun, another Chinese player in Jin Daxing, and John Catlin.

With Li Haotong a shot further back on 5 under, China has three players in the top seven.
