England’s Andy Sullivan wins easily in homeland

With 27-under total, Sullivan breezes to 7-stroke victory at European Tour’s English Championship for his 1st title in 5 years

7: Number of strokes by which England’s Andy Sullivan won the European Tour’s English Championship on Sunday in Ware, England. Sullivan, 33, birdied four of his final seven holes at Hanbury Manor Marriott Hotel & Country Club to cap a 6-under 65 and win going away. He finished at 27-under 257. It was his fourth career triumph on the European Tour but his first since a three-victory season in 2015, the year before he made Europe’s Ryder Cup team. “It’s frustrating that I didn’t kick on from 2015, but it’s just one of those things," Sullivan said. "It feels like the weight of the world is lifted off my shoulders that I’m back in the winner’s circle. I’m just proud of myself to come back and get that win in the manner I did.” Spain’s Adrian Otaegui (66) finished second at 20-under 264. Rasmus Hojgaard, a 19-year-old from Denmark, closed with 64 for a 19-under 265 total and third place. It was his third consecutive top-six finish on the U.K. Swing of the tour’s revised 2020 schedule (scores).
