Andy Sullivan said he has been working on his short game and is feeling quite confident ahead of the inaugural Cazoo Classic despite an admitted lack of form over the past couple of weeks.

“I feel like the game is good. I’ve been playing nicely without doing anything special just not being getting up and down around the greens enough in honesty. Short game has been letting me down, just absolutely zapping momentum halfway through rounds. I’ve been going along nicely, not getting up and down and you know come back a couple of shots or a shot and it’s like just completely zaps all momentum in the round so I’ve been doing a bit of work the last couple of weeks on that trying to you know get that tighter but the game feels in good shape. We’re all out here to be competitive, aren’t we, and when you’re not it is frustrating and there’s no hiding that and I’m not going to stand here and go I’m really happy I finished 50th the last two weeks because I’m not I’m fuming with it. I want to be at the top end of the leaderboard, it’s not nice going into Sunday’s and not really got much to play for so I’ll try and rectify that this week and make sure the short game is tight.. Loving the greens this week, the greens are really quick which is a lot more my alley so without having too much form coming in here I’m actually feeling quite confident my game”.
