"DJ" 's FedexCup win reveals his PGA tour domination since 2008 and reminds us of the 2011 "TAP" Putting breakthrough research findings by "SB".

Speaking from the DucksInn/Aberlady/EastLothian/Scotland, by Stephane Barras 

Should we say a "Tap" or a "Tap IN"? What is its distance and how should we execute it?

These are many questions that were unanswered before 2011. Since 2012 and the International research publication of "Better Understanding Putting Definition Perception and Goals"  every thing is clearer today due to the so called the Barras SPD (Standard Putting Definition) .

During my 6 months quest/research around the world as far as Australia to better understand putting, I had the privilege to and or follow/coach/caddie/interview some of the best players in the World. At that time Dustin Johnston was the World no.9 and I attended one of his media interview.

Quote from Dustin Johnston after his 66 second round at the 2011 Austrailian Open : "Today I have missed a few short putts. Most birdies I made were "TAP-IN" or from 3 to 4 feet"  

As a result and after gathering all the data and information needed. > We now should say "TAP" (from 0 to 2 feet - Zone1) > You can find all details described in my book "LaDifference" 5th (French) edition page on 164 http://www.editions-carte.ch/editions/difference-976.html or on www.puttzones.com (English).

Well done DJ!  "TAP" seulement "IN" ... by "SB"

Best "SwingScore" to win the FedEx BMW Championship or?

We will surely remember the two monster putts that went in at Olympic Fields as the way to win golf tournaments  > One from Dustin on 18th from 33 feet to force the Playoff and the other one from Rham 66 feet to win it.... not forgeting John's "Drop" brain down on Saturday... > https://www.golfdigest.com/story/watch-jon-rahm-make-this-utterly-unbelievable-66-foot-birdie-putt-to-clinch-the--bmw-championship

What we see @CaddiePlayer is that both players did not reach our long putt ratio target 10% In from Zone4 and that once again the best #SwingScore wins.

Any Comments? 



Quote from Justin Ray @15thClub

An incredible final round at the BMW Championship concluded with Jon Rahm making a 66-foot putt on the first playoff hole to defeat Dustin Johnson. It was the longest putt Rahm has made on the PGA Tour all season long and just two feet away from being his career-long make. Rahm now has eleven official worldwide wins since 2017, tied with Justin Thomas for most in that span.

My father Roger was a caddie in the 40's a player in the 50's and a teacher in the 60's when I was born (1963). Thanks to him and his patience, I have learn from him in the 70's, caddied/played with him in the 80's, taught with him in the 90's. In 2000 this day at 0h500 he booked his tee time to heaven and since then I am his score card keeper (CaddiePlayer).

I do not have children myself, therefore all children are "mine" and their fathers a mirror to my own. Over the past year I have encountered countless fathers and I have often asked myself what kind of a father would I have been?

From Holly Riordan

"Being a good father means supporting your children with their dreams. It means giving them the freedom to choose. It means letting them make their own decisions because you trust that you raised them the right way. Because you trust that they have the tools they need to succeed."

From Ghalil Ghibran

Today I have a special thoughts for my father as well for father Marc Langasque (father of Romain Langasque Winner yesterday of the Wales Open Romain first European tour win) : "Je suis le plus heureux des papas" > https://www.facebook.com/marc.langasque/posts/10220964156446279 - https://www.europeantour.com/european-tour/wales-open-2020/

Until next time fathers...

Scotland, EastLothian/Aberlady

After 8 months of Covid19, travelling as far as Thailand via Saudi, being confined in Dubai for 6 weeks, stuck in Switzerland 2 months, and a on going project in France, I am now back to Scotland my new home.

Initially I was supposed to be Onsite CaddiePlayer at the Scottish Ladies Open instead I have ended up as Online CaddiePlayer at TheDucks Inn, where the TV crew and LET co-founder and commentator Mickey Walker stayed. OnLine CaddiePlayer from the Ducks gave me extra time together with my local associate, Ian Butcher, to initiate the transcript biography of the British Open Champion 1904 JackWhite and here the first draft: 

"John White, known as Jack was born on the 15 of august 1873 in Pefferside cottage 5 miles east of North Berwick between Scoughall and Whitekirk. John’s father was involved in agricultural laboring on the estate of Mr Laidlay who’s son, John Ernest Laidlay, became one of the great amateur golfers of East Lothian by winning the British Amateur Championship twice (1889/1891) as well as inventing the most used grip today, known as “The Vardon Grip”…"

Jack White's birthday 147 years ago, was last saturday august 15th and to my great satisfaction it coincided with a win from CaddiePlayer Junior U14 Celeste Mangeat from Switzerland. (Instagram: @cegolf242)
