Chile’s Felipe Aguilar, one of the Challenge Tour’s most consistent players in 2007, has his eye on only one prize as he heads to this week’s €200,000 Rolex Trophy – namely a return to The European Tour.
With five top five finishes already this season, Aguilar has climbed to second place on the Rankings, proving that consistency can be as potent as victory on the Challenge Tour as it returns to the stunning Golf Club de Genève in Switzerland.
But has coming close on so many occasions and not yet standing on the winner’s podium been a source of any frustration?
“I’ll win one when I make some more putts!” he said. “Hopefully I can win one soon. Hopefully it will be this week, but my goal for the season is to get back on The European Tour.
“That’s the number one goal. Some guys win an event and miss some cuts, but that’s not the way it is happening for me. I have been very consistent and building a lot of confidence. I’m not too worried about winning, I am just thinking about getting where I need to be next year.
“I’m going out to the Rolex Trophy to enjoy it and to do as well as I can – it’s going to be a fun event because it is different to what we are used to playing.”
The Rolex Trophy is a unique event on the Challenge Tour Schedule, with an elite field of 39 players (the top 36 on the Rankings as at August 2, 2007, and three invitations for players who moved into the top 36 after last week’s Scottish Challenge presented by Bank of Scotland Corporate) playing in a Pro-Am format.
