CaddiePlayer Baig join 30 on their Journey to Jordan

With three players tied for 29th place, a playoff was needed to find out the two players who secured their cards. England’s Mark James, Pakistan’s Ahmad Baig and Sweden’s William Nygard were the ones left in the battle. Baig birdied the first hole to take his card while Nygard three-putted from 15 feet for par to give James an unexpected lifeline.

Scientist DeChambeau first International win in Dubai

Since my first participation as a delegate to the 1998 World Science Congress of Golf and later as a speaker presenter (2012-2016), I become an active believer/promoter in Golf Science. I could not miss the opportunity to follow sunday Omega Dubai Desert Classic final round to witness not only a great duel between the “Scientist” Bryson DeChambeau and the “defending champion” Li Hao Tong* but as well a fantastic opportunity to see another history making in Dubai. 

The opportunity would also let me benchmark/research their performance using the CaddiePlayer & PuttZones metrics. The "duel" Bryson versus Li went quite short as after the second hole only, Li made a poor chip followed by 3 putts as Bryson back to back birdies cruised to a 64 to finish -24 and in his pocket his first International win.

What impressed me the most in Bryson game was not his putting but his SwingScore58, which according the the "4ShotsRule" (Barras-Baradie) would have been made possible a score of 54 matching the "Vision54"  quest from Lynn Marriott and Pia Nilsson.

“The more you can understand the world around you the more prepare you will be” 

I was then privilege to be one of the few able to attend DeChambeau press conference and to get more insite of his “Secrets” which many might think its about putting… Actually its not… According to Bryson it all comes to the “DOMINO” effects...

One season ends, another start, 2018 our best “feed us all”


I am currently in Dubai reading the book “The Year 1000”; a book that describes what life was like in England in the year 1000.

In their exploration of what life was like at the turn of the first millennium, authors Robert Lacey and Danny Danziger refernce the historical document of the “Juluis Work Calendar” produced in a writing studio of Canterbury Cathedral some time around Ad 1020.

1018 thousand year ago, life was regulated by the length of night and day light and had a direct influence on the primary survival objective of the time: the creation and production of food. “The ploughman feed us all” proclaimed a common saying of the time, and the calendar of holly days and festivities served to instill faith toward God and the King: the protectors of the people.

In the year 1000 the forests were farmed like fields. Wood was the fuel of the times. People's main fear was famine and starvation in a time when coins and currency were just getting organized.

Now days the world has become global and the tools of modernization give us the freedom to fly where the skies are always blue and the sun always shines.  At CaddiePlayer, we like to say “The player feed us all” as our moto. 1018 years later we record our best “Tour Work Calendar” thanks to LPGA Celine Herbin, European Tour Raphael Jacquelin, Richard Sterne and Matthieu Pavon (July-August).

For our 2018 record performance book:

·         1 Top 5, 4 top ten

·         4  times club house leader

·         4 major participations, 2 cuts, 1 top25

·         1 best career score card > 62

·         1 albatros, more eagles and countless birdies

·         over 1 million Euro in prize money, but most importantly Celine, Raphael, Richard and Mattieu kept their Tour card privilege to further “feed” 2019…. Thanks to the fuel fly to the sun, 2019 season has allready started….

Stephane in the second millennium in another dimension.
