Dear Tour Caddie, Tour Player, Coach and Amateur,
I am a Swiss PGA member since 1983 and a UAE PGA member since 2007. My great Cousin Géo Barras was the first Swiss golf professional back in 1943, My late Father Roger Barras caddie for the 1952 Swiss Open Champion, Ugo Grappassoni, and later became a Swiss Golf Champion. I was fortunate to learn from some of the best teacher in the world > John Redman, Gary Wiren, Mike Hebron, Bill StrausBaugh as well share students with David Leadbetter. I am also one of the few to have the Putting Storkes Gained app from Mark Broadie himself.
In 1995, I publish the golf Manuel “The Difference” and in 2009, famous Chinese Player Zhang Lian Wei invited me to China to be his coach. In respond to Golf being in the 2016 Olympics I launch the project "Par354", was the head of Haigang Golf at the Olympic City in Kunming and later assist Leading Chinese as Wu Ah Shun and Lia Hao Tong (Both represented China in Rio Olympic Games).
