    Break Through Putting Research

The PuttZones system is the ending result of the 2011 putting research « Better Understanding Putting Distance Perception and Goals ». This research was conducted by Swiss and UAE PGA member Stéphane Barras. The research was presented at the World Scientific Congress of Golf (WSCG 2012) www.golfscience.org  and later published in the International Journal of Golf Science. At last Stephane Barras was awarded GolfDigest 2020 #BestInternationalTeachers.

As a result of the research, for the first time in the history of golf, we could standardize the distance of each putting definition (Tap, Short, Medium and Long). For many aspects this is a key factor of putting performance understanding.

In 2013, Stéphane Barras launch CaddiePlayer a practical solution based on the research. In WSCG 2016 Stéphane Barras co-presented at the University of St-Andrews Scotland, a Tutorial Research called >  "The 4 Shots Rule". This Tutorial research is also connected with the PuttZones System.

The PuttZones System, part of CaddiePlayer solution, divide the putting green into 4 zones (Circle)

  1. The Tap.
  2. The Short.
  3. The Medium. 
  4. The Long.

Each Zone has its own procedure, strategy and goal.

From Stéphane's research on putting, we knows that in order to optimize your scoring each PuttZones Ratio (PZR) result must match a ideal % IN. Once you enter 12 rounds into www.CaddiePlayer.com data system, you will be able to see accuratly your "PZR" efficiency. (Below Exemple)

By using the PuttZones system properly we can guarantee that your putting average per round will be under 30 putts, this is a must condition if you aspire to be in the top of the leaderboard. By attending a PuttZones workshop with its founder, Stéphane Barras, you will be able to better understand how each Zone works and more importantly improve your In putts Ratio. 

Ultimatly you will learn:

  • The PuttZones Distances.
  • The PuttZones Language.
  • The PuttZones Walk.
  • The PuttZones Thought.
  • The PuttZones Drills.
  • More PuttZones technics to become the best putter you can imagine.

“I believe most golfers would become better putters if they followed a few basic fundamentals and took more notice of the mentality of this game within a game rather than purely technique. Psychology plays a vital part in putting”.
