Nacho Elvira sealed victory at the Kazoo Open supported by Gareth Bale

Spaniard Nacho Elvira beat Justin Harding in a play-off to seal a first European Tour win at the Cazoo Open supported by Gareth Bale on Sunday.

World number 694 Elvira had gone into the final day with a six-shot lead, but the 34-year-old was caught by the chasing pack at the Celtic Manor Resort in Wales.

He three-putted on the final hole to sign for a 71 and finish at 16 under alongside Harding, who had carded a superb 65.

It was Harding's turn to three putt the par-five 18th in the play-off, though, handing Elvira victory at the 195th attempt on the European Tour.

"It means the world," Elvira said. "That's what we practise for and what we strive for. We try to win, to be at the best level on the European Tour and play with the best.

"I thought I had it all pretty under control but to be honest I got pretty nervous on the last couple of putts on the regular 18. I was more calm in the play-off than I was on the 18.

"It's a shame to see someone miss a putt, I suppose they felt the same for me when I missed, but I can't believe I won."

Finn Mikko Korhonen finished at 15 under after a 66, one clear of Englishman Callum Shinkwin who ended the tournament – which received backing from Real Madrid and Wales superstar Bale – with a 67.
