Biography

Made an incredible surge at the end of the 2013 Challenge Tour season, following up successive top ten finishes in the Kharkov Superior Cup and Kazakhstan Open with victory at The Foshan Open, before another top ten at the penultimate National Bank of Oman Classic. The win in China lifted him from 50th place in the Rankings to inside the top 15, before a strong finish at the Dubai Festival City Challenge Tour Grand Final hosted by Al Badia Golf Club earned him 14th place in the Rankings and a rookie season on The European Tour. His delight in Dubai was heightened by the success of his close friend and room-mate for three years at Texas A&M University, Andrea Pavan, who finished as Challenge Tour Number One. The Spaniard is a rare case in golf, saying that nobody in his family had any interest in the game until he started showing some promise when swinging a golf club as a five year old. A local teaching professional alerted Elvira’s father to his son’s natural talent, and now the three men in his family – he, his father and his brother – are hooked.
