Enoch and Whitnell share Cazoo Classic lead

British players lead the way in final event of the UK Swing

Rhys Enoch and Dale Whitnell share a one-stroke lead heading into the weekend at the Cazoo Classic, where British players dominate the leaderboard in the final event of the European Tour's UK Swing.

Welshman Enoch carded the round of the day at London Golf Club with a bogey-free seven-under 65 which moved him to a ten under par total. The 33-year-old already has two Sunshine Tour titles and one Challenge Tour victory to his name but will enter the weekend seeking a maiden European Tour win.
“I haven’t had time to think about the round yet, I was a bit concerned about how bumpy the green were going to get with this poana grass but I’m chuffed to get into the house with a 65," said Enoch.
"It was really a bit of a grind, but you just have to put one foot in front of the other, play hole-by-hole and we managed to do that."
Whitnell, meanwhile, has never led or shared a lead after any round on the European Tour and the Englishman is also seeking a first victory. His four under 68 also came without a single dropped shot and the 33-year-old parred every one of his final nine holes.
“It was solid, I haven’t missed many fairways today. The swing feels in good shape and I’ve just got to keep doing what I’m doing," said Whitnell.
“Angie is great on the bag, she knows nothing about golf so there’s not a lot of input there other than moral support but it seems to work well so we just need to keep doing what we’re doing."

England's Jordan Smith and Callum Hill of Scotland, both of whom have had good chances to win during the UK Swing, share third place on nine under par after respective rounds of 69 and 67, while Richard Bland and Maverick Antcliffe are one stroke further back.
