SYNDEY, AUSTRALIA (Jan 28, 2011) --Englishman Andy Sullivan (Nuneaton Golf Club, UK) has secured a convincing victory in the 2011 NSW Medal, finishing at 18-under after the four rounds of play, winning the event by five shots.
Sullivan was 14 under after 36-holes, tied with 17-year-old Jake Higginbottom (The Australian), however consistency over the last 36-holes saw him pull away from the field to collect the title. Despite being nine shots off the leaders going into the final day’s play, Jack Senior (Haysham, UK) (Concord) played consistently over the last 36-holes with scores of 68 and 68 to finish with 13-under overall and finish as runner-up on a countback.
Lincoln Tighe (Moore Park) also finished on 13-under, and finished in third place. The English players really excelled in the event, with four of the top six place getters all from the UK.
