Baldwin and Sullivan finish tied 5th in Joberg Open

Tags : 

Matt Baldwin (68, 69, 68, 67) and Andy Sullivan (66, 72, 69, 65) both flew up the leaderboard on Sunday to finish tied 5th in the 2014 Joberg Open in South Africa.

Both players have made a great start to the 2014 season and are consistently challenging up at the business end of tournaments on the European Tour.

They were no doubt both buoyed by Liverpool FC’s win against Arsenal FC yesterday 🙂

Englishman Matthew Baldwin gave further credence to the power of positive thought when he moved into the lead at the halfway stage of the Golf Open Grand Toulouse on the European Challenge Tour.

The 25 year old from Southport carded a superb second round 63 at Golf de Toulouse-Seilh in south west France for a 12 under par total of 130 and a two shot lead over first round pacesetter Christophe Brazillier of France, who posted a 70 for 132, and Sweden’s Robin Wingardh who notched a 67 for the same total.

Currently 29th on the Challenge Tour Rankings and therefore within touching distance of the top 20 who will gain playing privileges on The 2012 European Tour at the end of the season, Baldwin revealed he is using every possible means to make the step up, including trying to harness the mental side of the game.

For most of this year, the Englishman has been working with sports psychologist Lee Crombleholme and admitted he is seeing a positive effect, as illustrated by four top 25 finishes in his last four outings on the Challenge Tour.

“I only actually see Lee about three or four times a year but I call him most tournament days,” said Baldwin, who carded four birdies in each half in a flawless second round showing, including birdie twos at each of the three par threes on the inward half of the Seilh venue.

“All the lads out here on Tour speak about all aspects of the game and while everyone probably knows how you should think out on the golf course, sometimes in the heat of competition you can forget. The calls I make to Lee hopefully help me remember.”

Leading the pursuit of Baldwin was another man heavily involved in the mental side of the game, Robin Wingardh, who turned professional in June after successfully completing a degree in sports psychology at the University of Tennessee.
