Nacho Elvira scored two goals at the European Tournament Cazoo Open as his younger brother Manuel of Spain moved on in the clash at the invitation of Italy.
The overnight captain returned from an open hole overnight, gave up 67 cards in the second round and went under 11 to move, which strengthened the 34-year-old’s hopes of winning the European title on a European tour.
Elvira’s younger brother, Manuel, was also at the age of 11 after 36 holes in the Challenge Tour, with both brothers briefly running their events at the same time as Frederic Lacua moved forward in Italy.
“It’s unbelievable,” said the older brother, who has made just two of his last 11 cuts. “He played brilliantly. It’s amazing that we’re both 11 years old and a leader, it’s interesting – it never was.
“To be one hundred percent honest, I don’t really care where I end up. I’m happy with how I try to change my game, especially my mind. So let’s see what that brings.”

Elvira, in her second round in Wales, mixed six birds with two bugs, dodged overnight leader Vincent Norman and cleared only her third professional event, separating four from her last five holes for a two-to-69 card. .
Masahiro Kawamura of Japan recorded the lowest round of the day with four shots and moved up to third after eight to 63, with Matt Wallace – the tallest player on the field – four laps when he wanted to make his way back to Ryder Cup.
“I haven’t felt that way in a while, I’ve come to a race where expectations are a little higher,” said Wallace, who needs to win next week’s WGC-FedEx St Jude Invitational this week. “I still have high expectations of myself, but during this time I didn’t feel that way.
“That’s what I’m here for. I need a really good result – I don’t think the second one will be enough for me to get into WGC. That’s my goal for a week and I hope I can make a few less mistakes have – I’m “playing very well to get it done this week. “
