The Englishman is seeking his fourth European Tour win – and his first since the 2015 Portugal Masters – and he recorded the lowest round of the week to get to fourteen under par and lead a strong home presence at the third event of the UK Swing.
South African Dean Burmester matched Sullivan’s back nine 28 in a round of 63 that left him a shot off the lead alongside another Englishman in Laurie Canter, who recorded a 65.
“It was very satisfying. I’m really happy with my day’s work. Yesterday and today were both slow on the front nine and didn’t get into my flow with the swing and wasn’t moving it the way I wanted to. Then on the back nine I freed up a little bit and got the putter going. I holed a lot of nice putts out there. I got a little bit of luck here and there as well, which when you shoot a low round it tends to go that way." said Sullivan after his round.
Three further home favourites in Richard Bland, Steven Brown and Andrew Johnston are among a group of nine players two shots further back on 11 under par.
