Sullivan misses cut in Africa.

Byline: Derek Brown

NUNEATON'S Andy Sullivan failed to beat the halfway cut in the Africa Open following a disappointing second round 74 at the East London course.

Following a two-under par 71 on Thursday, the 24-yearold from Stockingford struggled to find his A game on his first appearance as a fully-fledged European Tour player.

Starting on the tenth, Sullivan (pictured) dropped shots on 14 for the second day running and the 17th to turn in 38 but responded in bullish fashion with birdies on the second and fourth holes to give him hope of making the cut off point of minus five.

However, over the last five holes it was a real topsy-turvy spell for the Great Britain & Ireland Walker Cup ace as he bogeyed hole five, seven and nine with birdies on six and eight to leave him signing for a 74 and one under overall, four shots away from making the weekend action.

However, Kenilworth's seasoned professional Jamie Elson ground out a splendid 71 to add to his first day's 70 to leave him right on the cut line of five under to scramble through to today and tomorrow plus a definite pay day for his exertions at Buffalo City.

The 30-year-old was solid throughout the second round with no dropped shots on his cards that had 16 pars plus birdies on 13 and 15 to qualify.
