Biography

Won his second European Tour title in spectacular fashion in The Championship at Laguna National in May 2014. Holed his second shot for eagle on the par four 18th hole of the final round for a 62 - he played the back nine in 28 shots - to win the title by one stroke. The victory came six years after his maiden win, at the 2008 Enjoy Jakarta Astro Indonesia Open. Having been introduced to the game by his grandfather, Alfredo Schuler, who built a number of golf courses in Chile after emigrating from Germany, Aguilar won more than 30 events in Chile early in his professional career. Was forced to change his swing in 2004 when he broke a bone in his back, which took five months to heal. Had an unsuccessful rookie season on The European Tour in 2006 when he failed to keep his card, but bounced back with a sensational season on the 2007 Challenge Tour, winning twice to finish the year in third place in the Rankings. Educated at the University of North Florida where he studied International Business. Elected as a member of The European Tour Tournament Committee in 2012.
