European Golf Tour caddy Andy Sutton and British Open champion Ben Curtis were reunited the week of the 2003 Lancome Trophy European Tour golf tournament in Versailles, France for the first time since their British Open victory at Royal St. George's in early July 2003! They made the cut to the weekend at one under par. Andy has been caddying for his regular player John Bickerton on the European Tour since the Open victory with Curtis. Andy is again on the sack for Curtis in 2005! Here's our story about the great victory in the 2003 British Open at Royal St. Georges on the east coast of the English British Isles!
European tour caddy Andy Sutton was driving back from just having missed the cut at the Scottish Open near Glasgow where he had caddied for his regular player John Bickerton, and was pondering what his next move would be. He was headed towards his hometown of Maidstone, U.K., just up the road from where the 2003 British Open was to be played the next week in Sandwich, at Royal St. George's golf club.
Andy was making a comeback of sorts after
spending the previous year unable to work and in rehabilitation from a severely
fractured leg incurred while competing in an endurance motorcycle race. In
his caddy career he had been Andrew Coltart's caddy and worked for Joakim
Haeggman, when they won the Scandinavian Masters and also caddied for him in the
1993 Ryder Cup.
Curtis of course then holed his birdie three on # 10 and even though it was somewhat a struggle after that they managed to hold on during the hard holes coming in to post one under and win the tournament. Ben was just playing good golf and executing and having a good time at it too with his new friend and current compatriot Sutton. Sutton was just happy to have a job and having made the cut be in position for a good finish in the greatest of golf tournaments. Results weren't their focus as much as was the process of what each was doing out there. This all helped get Ben in the mode of playing one shot at a time instead of all that was happening to and around him.
So there you have it. Caddy picks up player
who's never played links golf before and is an immediate help. Player is
talented young and hungry. Caddy knows all the necessary golf psychology
to deal with the moment when it arrives. Voila!; Curtis wins the biggest
tournament title in golf and Andy Sutton goes from the 'Caddy Outhouse' to the
'Caddy Penthouse' all in one week's time. Ultimately it came down to
Andy's ability to 'make the right play at the right time' -that
timely phone call to IMG! All the rest is now history.
