Phil Sutton: Forever the bridesmaid but never the bride… until now!

FORMER WALES No.1 badminton player Phillip Sutton found it fourth time lucky at the Welsh Seniors Championship, as he finally lifted the title after three runner-up finishes.

Sutton, a former badminton pro whose highest world ranking was 11, used his sporting experience – as well as lessons learned from those second places – to close out the event in wet and windy conditions at Aberdovey Golf Club.

There was a three-way tie for second with Royal Jersey’s Phil Evans coming through the field with a 71, four better than any other player in the final day to join Craig Buttivant and Michael Calvert.

“After the disappointment of being runner-up three times, this is absolutely fantastic – it makes all the previous heartache seem worth it to learn and to come through in those conditions,” said 62-year-old Sutton, from Ebbw Vale, who played at West Monmouthshire as a junior.

“On one occasion someone putted well, on another they hit some great shots, but the third time last year I made some mental mistakes that cost me dearly.

“But you put those things that happened in the memory bank, so I was patient on the back nine in particular and did not beat myself up for dropping shots.”
