Felipe Andrés Aguilar Schuller (born November 7, 1974) is a Chilean professional golfer who has won over 30 events in Chile and now plays on the European Tour.

In 2006 he became the second Chilean, after Roy Mackenzie to earn full membership to the European Tour but failed to retain full playing rights at the end of the season. In 2007 he won two events on the Challenge Tour in a 4-week span. Due to his success on the Challenge Tour he rejoined the European Tour in 2008.

In February 2008, Aguilar won his first European Tour event at the Astro Indonesia Open. He birdied the final hole while the erstwhile leader Jeev Milkha Singh bogeyed for a two shot swing that saw the Chilean win by one stroke.

In April 2013, Aguilar was part of the joint longest sudden-death playoff, lasting nine extra holes, in European Tour history at the Open de España. He was eliminated at the third extra hole when he made par. He ended 50th in the Race to Dubai with eight top 10s in 27 tournaments.

In May 2014, Aguilar won his second European Tour title at The Championship at Laguna National, a co-sanctioned event with the Asian Tour. Aguilar shot a final round 62, which included a birdie-eagle finish in a 28 on the back nine to storm through the field and take a one shot victory.

Aguilar won the gold medal at the 2014 South American Games and the silver medal at the 2015 Pan American Games
