Did you know?

Sullivan's solid amateur career culminated in a Walker Cup appearance in 2011, where he came up against the tough proposition of Jordan Spieth in the singles. Spieth ran out the winner 3 and 2. Not undaunted, Sullivan turned professional later in 2011 and qualified for the 2012 European Tour through Q-School.

Although 2012 was a mixed year without any top-10 finishes, 2013 and 2014 saw steady progress and the development of a stronger game on the Tour. Andy's breakthrough win came early in 2015 in the South African Open. He won again in South Africa at the Joburg Open in March and rounded off an excellent 2015 with a win on European soil in the Portugal Masters. A first appearance in the Ryder Cup followed in 2016.

What Andy's fan base, known as "Sulli's Army" take most pleasure in, is the positive, cheery and respectful way Andy conducts himself on the course .... a role model for the scores of more intense "corporate robots" on the pro tours.
