– Staffer takes dramatic wire-to-wire play-off victory at The Celtic Manor Resort in Wales –
(Chessington, UK – July 26, 2021) Victorious Callaway Staff Professional Nacho Elvira led the Cazoo Open from start to finish to record his maiden European Tour title using a full bag of Callaway and Odyssey equipment.
The 34-year-old Spaniard eventually won the event in a play-off, having carded impressive rounds of 64, 67, 66 and 71, for a -16 total, earning him a €191,570 winner’s cheque. Fellow #TeamCallaway staffers, Callum Shinkwin and Matt Wallace also featured in the Top 10.
Nacho’s equipment included Callaway Epic MAX LS Driver, Epic Speed Fairway Wood, Apex TCB Irons, Mack Daddy 5 JAWS Wedges, an Odyssey Toulon Long Island Putter, and a Chrome Soft X Golf Ball.
The Epic MAX LS Driver is designed for mid-to-low handicap players who want more speed, neutral ball flight and forgiveness in a lower spin, high MOI package.
MAX ball speeds come from a new Jailbreak A.I. Speed Frame that works in combination with the A.I. Designed Flash Face. This unique driver head provides enhanced fade bias capabilities, along with Adjustable Perimeter Weighting to fine tune ball flight off the tee.
Talking immediately after his victory, Nacho said: “I’m shaking right now. It feels like all the hard work has paid off a little bit. We still have to keep working and try to put ourselves more in this position.
“This is what we practise for and what we strive for. It means the world to me.”
Odyssey also continued its week-on-week dominance on the European Tour.
It was the #1 Putter at the Cazoo Open, with more players choosing Odyssey than any other brand, with the 2-Ball TEN the most popular model.
Odyssey continues to be the #1 Putter on EVERY major Tour worldwide.
President and Managing Director, Callaway EMEA, Neil Howie, commented: “Huge congratulations to Nacho, a fantastic achievement. He has been so close to his first win a number of times and to now get the job done, gives him a fantastic winning platform from which to build on.”
