Emotional Elvira claims maiden European Tour title

It was tougher than I thought, it’s golf and you have to play 72 holes. I was playing with Callum, he was playing great – he was hitting at every pin and trying to catch some ground. I had a little bit of a shaky start and woke up on number six, then started playing some solid golf. I missed a couple of shots. I was trying to be not too aggressive.

I think the putter wasn’t as sharp today as it was the last two days, you could see that on 18, obviously. After six I was pretty relaxed until 18, the last three putts were tough. I don’t think I’ve ever been nervous, and I’m not ashamed to admit I was quite nervous.

“I was more relaxed in the play-off than I was in regulation. I hit a good drive, just a little bit left, and I didn’t catch a good lie – on the rough. I had good distance to go for it, but the lie wasn’t good enough. I saw Justin laid up, so decided to get a good yardage and try to hit a great shot – that’s what I did. After that I hit a great putt, just a little bit short.

“(Seve Ballesteros and José María Olazábal) will probably have their heads in the ground after that last putt on 18. I hope they’re proud. I hope Seve, wherever he is is proud, and I hope José María is proud as well. To be honest, I was thinking, especially on the last nine or ten holes about Celia Barquín (Arozamena), she passed away a few years ago and I was good friends with the family. This is for her.”
