Chinese Golf Flourishing at Shankai Classic

Print Friendly, PDF & Email



ChongQing - China - October 19th 2014

After 36 holes of the Shankai Classic there were reasons to be cheerful for Chinese golf fans everywhere as native professionals and amateurs alike showed what they are made of at Chongqing Poly Golf Club.

Hu Mu led the home charge through two rounds, carding scores of 70 and 68 to enter the final day in a tie for fifth some four shots adrift of the leader Antonio Hortal at ten under par, during a week in which 11 players from China survived the 18 hole cut after low visibility disrupted the first two days. One of the aims of the European Challenge Tour has always been to use its events to encourage the development of golf wherever it visits, and thanks to its relationship with the China Golf Association in staging tournaments such as this, that is something which is sure to continue.

It remains to be seen how Hu will perform in the final round, but the 25 year old was delighted to be in contention for a maiden title on the second tier, as he looks to build on the talent that had previously seen him heralded as a word beater when still in his teens. Alongside Chen heading into the final round was Zhou Guo-wu, who was the second highest ranked Chinese professional in the field heading into Sunday.

Rongjian Tang 17 years of age was another member of the unpaid ranks to have made the 18 hole cut alongside Chen in Chongqing, and he is benefitting from the unique approach of Swiss coach Stephane Barras, who is working with a number of players in China using his CaddiePlayer system.

Barras – who hails from Crans Montana, home of the Omega European Masters – is here this week scouting talent for the promoter Shankai in order to ensure golf in China continues to progress at pace.

Li Hao-tong Become Youngest Winner on OneAsia TOUR

Nanshan-China, October 12-2014


China’s Li Hao-tong became the youngest winner on OneAsia today when the 19-year-old claimed the US$1 million Nanshan China Masters. He triumphed by four strokes after shooting a final round one-under-par 70 at Nanshan International Golf Club in extreme wind. Australian Lee Jun Seok fired a 69 to claim sole possession of second place, while Todd Baek from Korea ended two shots further adrift in third position after posting a 74.


It has been a remarkable run for Li as he also won the Henan Open on the PGA TOUR China Series two weeks ago by eight strokes. The previous youngest winner had been Korean Kim Bi-o when claimed this very same event in 2011 aged 20. “I think I am too young to win a Masters event,” joked Li, who finished the tournament on nine under and US$180,000 richer. “I could not stand sometimes when I was putting as the wind was so strong. I never played in wind like this.” 


With the wind gusting up to 40mph on some parts of the course, Li held his game together admirably.

After making the turn he stumbled somewhat with a bogey on the 11th and a double bogey on the 12th that saw his lead cut to one. However, he showed his star qualities by making birdie on three of the last four holes. “I scored 100 points on those last few holes,” said Li. The rising star was one off the lead after the first round but led after the second and third days.

I had the opportunity to participate in a two day clinic with creator and researcher Stephane Barras « The Caddie Player » genius.  Firstly to be invited to this amazing facility at Château de Chailly, is something special.  To be impressed on arrival by this regal historic structure, in the centre of this quaint country village. The rolling hills of the Burgundy region of France,  flashes of autumn colours already appearing, despite the brisks winds, the sun was out and it was time to test this theory, and learn what I needed to know on how to improve my putting!

Stephane looked at me and said… »I can tell you seriously that even within two hours I will make you a better putter ! « First,  we talked about the system he created, his reserach, his findings and case studies for Caddie Player.  One needs to understand the logic of the system to be able to transform it, apply it and then put it into regular practice.

Ok….so the test!   On the putting green we go and we start with the Caddie Player test of playing a fictional round to arrive on the green with various putts to negociate, differing distances, differing scores…..scenarios such as:  sinking the putt for a birdie at 18 feet….sinking it for an eagle at 36 feet and so on.  Not much to ask…..really!  So, we finished the round, and followed through with the analysis.  OK, I’m not only honest, but realistic….my score was not exceptional, but with so much room for improvement, it could only be a positive result.

We finished the analysis on the computer and returned to the green.  It is an invaluable test making you aware of the susceptibility of many golfers on the green… Misreading of the greens,  missed speeds and distances.  Following some practical exercises and drills, in conjunction  with Stephane’s explanations and logical theory behind this method, the golfer has a much clearer idea how to successfully apply this system when actually on the green,  with a more relaxed mental focus.

So after the theory and training, it was time to execute all that I had learned on the course.  I couldn’t believe my luck to arrive on the first tee with Christian Cévaër, not only one of the recorder holders on the European Tour for the best putting average, but also a contributer and particpant to the Caddieplayer research.  Two professional players to assist my golf…..what could be better?

With CaddiePlayer, you don’t have to be  a professional golfer to benefit from this system.  In fact, it is quite simple once you understand the strategic method of Caddieplayer, you too will be putting like a professional!  Thank you Stephane for your wisdom and positive influence on sharpening up my putting game.
