EGP Members have a solid week in PHX

Posted on November 19, 2014 at 1:40 PM Comments comments (0)

Two of Elite Golf Program's finest tee'd it up in our partner's Tour Championship. That is the MJT Tour Championship which was held at Lagacy Golf Resort in the beautiful city of Phoenix. Legacy was prime for scoring as Darin got off to a hot start with a solid two over par 73 that included a birdie on the 9th for an even par front nine. Jeff wasn't far behind though with a 5 over 76. Both players sat in the Top 15 after day one, behind the leader (69 -2). Jeff played his way into the Top 10, sitting 8th respectively after a final round 72 for a very impressive 148 total. Darin fired a good round of 78, which kept him inside the Top 15 and a nice way to close out the year. Both players played well and we would like to congratulate them on the finishes! See you in 2015 guys! 

Who are the Top 3 to look for in 2015?

Posted on November 18, 2014 at 7:35 PM Comments comments (0)

The 2015 season is right around the corner. The countdown is 105 days, or just over three and a third of a month away! We had great play in 2014, with powerhouse players like Darin Bertschi winning 5 times, Grayson Constable winning 4 times and Drew Harvie winning a record 7 times, so here's our time to predict! Who are the Top 3 players to look for in 2015? Here's who we think will make a splash.

-Darin Bertschi

won 62.5% of the time in only a handful of events, and will be hungry coming short of the Stranville Living Cup. The venues set up well for him too, with the likes of Paradise Canyon, Lethbridge Country Club and Picture Butte Golf Club, all venues he played well at in 2014.

-Grayson Constable

One of the more dominent players in 2014, winning four times including the Players and the Masters. He will be looking for vengance as he lost in 19 holes against Drew Harvie in the Stranville Living Cup. Look for his length to benefit him.

-Trey Brandt 

One of the most underrated year's, Trey won twice including the full field Big Cup Challenge. Trey doesn't hit it far, but when he starts to this year he'll be a big threat. Watch out for him with the great short game and length combo is almost unbeatable 

Who had the most underrated season in 2014?

Posted on November 16, 2014 at 4:35 PM Comments comments (0)

The 2014 brought lots of good play, good venues, exciting championshp's and lots of good players toward's Elite Golf Program. Most people have heard about Grayson Constable's good 4 win season that included 2 of the big 6 events, or Drew's record setting 7 win year, or what about Ethan Choi's win at the MJT Banff Springs to get into EGP. Darin Bertschi would also be in that category, winning a second-to-one 5 times. But what about the most underrated season's? Two obvious choices stand out, and that's Trey Brandt and Jeff Masse. Trey Brandt won twice in 2014, at the Big Cup Challenge and the Modified Stableford Challenge, but what people do not usually realize is he didn't finish worse than fourth all year. Trey had 2 wins in 8 starts, winning 25% of the time, and finished 2nd twice, he finished back-to-back-to-back third place finishes in July and also added a fourth place finish. That's solid. Jeff Masse also had a very good season, but yet again underrated. Jeff won the first major of the year by a record 8 shots at Paradise Canyon. Everyone thought Jeff would go on a tear for 2014 and set the pace the whole year. Although this never happened, he came in fourth in the Stranville Living Cup and had a good season. Jeff won twice, highlighted by the 2014 EGP Open Championship, was low EGP Member at the Wolf Creek MJT event. Jeff had four runner-up finishes, 1 third and a fourth. Another player who didn't finish lower than fourth, is this where we hashtag #theseguysaregood.

Congratulations to Darin Bertschi who won May Player of the Month by one vote over Grayson Constable and Ethan Choi. Darin had a very good month with wins at the Front Nine Challenge and Spring Championship, finishing fourth at both the MJT Paraidse and MJT Banff, earning him POTM.

On the north side of Alberta Jeff Masse tried to take on the renowned Red Tail Landing golf course in Leduc, and fired a solid round of 79 to sit 14 back. Tyler Saunders lit of the vaulrable Red Tail course to fire a -7 65 to lead by 4. Hopefully Jeff can pull out another good score and get into the top 10 (he sits 11th), goodluck to Jeff!

Darin Bertschi notches second top 5 of the season at the MJT Banff

Darin Bertschi wins 3rd of the season, Harvie records 8th straight top 5

Posted on May 28, 2014 at 10:10 PM Comments comments (0)

Darin Bertschi shot a 1 over 37 on a recently aireted Lethbridge Country Club to win his third of the seaon by 1 over Grayson Constable. Darin is one win away from punching his ticket to the Tournament of Champions, which you need four wins to get exemption. The most impressive part his won is its 3rd win in four starts, and with a 75% win percentage, thats tough to beat on any tour. Grayson Constable finished one back (+2) after winning the Drive, Chip and Putt Championship two weeks ago, beginning an impressive play as of late. Trey Brandt notched his 4th top 3 of the season, another impressive feat, finishing runner-up three times, and third once, but still no wins for Trey. Lukas Ferguson got his best finish of the season with a T-4th, and said "I've really been playing well lately, its going to come"! One of the current big headliners of EGP right now is Drew's current streak of top 5's, currently on 8 and going strong "yeah its nice to always be in the top 5, its close to winning again, i havent won since the Evergreen Open in March so I'd love to get another win and get hot, but finishing in the top 5 is always nice and having the longest streak going in EGP has its perks as well"! Aidan Peacock played his first tournament of the year, but didnt play solid which was dissapointing, but lots of talent and lots of time we will see Aidan develop into a great player! Jackson Harvie played his first of 3 exempt events, but finished 7th. The next EGP Tourmament is the years second Major, the EGP Masters at the Lethbridge Country Club June 13-15, with the Monday Qualifier June 9th. 

Jeff Massé finishes 6th in MJT Lacombe

Posted on May 20, 2014 at 12:35 AM Comments comments (0)

Jeff Massé came back a disappointing first day of 83 to fire an impressive 73 to finish in the top 6. This is Jeff's first top 10 of the year, and will certainly not be the last! Good job Jeff! He plans to play in this weekends MJT Banff Springs event, a counting Stranville Living Cup event and SAJGR event.

Jackson Harvie earns next 3 EGP Events

Posted on May 20, 2014 at 12:30 AM Comments comments (0)

The Drive, Chip and Putt last Wednesday was successful for many reasons, but one of them for a certain Junior golfer stood out. Jackson Harvie finished 3rd, which earned him the next 3 Stranville Living Cup Events. This will help him get on his was to earning a EGP membership through Stranville Living Cup points. Congratulations to Jackson and we hope to see you soon!

Grayson Constable wins for the first time, Drew Harvie records record 7th straight top 5

Posted on May 14, 2014 at 11:15 PM Comments comments (0)

It was a fun event for EGP Members and invitees as they played the first of two Drive, Chip and Putt Championship's throughout the season. Grayson Constable got his first Win of the season with a whopping 124 point total, followed by Drew Harvie at second, and Jackson Harvie (I) in third to round out medalist honours. This was a big event for all three players as they all earned something desperately needed. Grayson got his first solid finish after a couple of slow starts to the season, moved out of the cutline for the EGP Ryder Cup and gained valuable EGP Cup and SAJGR points. Drew Harvei recorded a 7th straight top 5, which is an ongoing record that is very impressive in itself, and Jackson Harvie earned more invitations to EGP Cup events with his 3rd place finish. He earned invites to the next 3 Stranville Living Cup Events, which are the Spring Championship (May 28th), The Thompson 9 Challenge (June 18th) and the 1934 Challenge (June 28th), he joins Blake Marczuk as the two players to get invited into more events, with Blake still having two exemptions in the Spring Championship and the Thompson 9 Challenge.
