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

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.

Drew drifted out of contention with a second round 88 to finish T-5. It was all grayson as he started off scrambly, with a triple off the 10th (his first) and then played the final 8 holes in 4 holes to finish with a 43 on the back (his front). He played the back nine (his front) in five over  to cap out an impressive 41 on a quick day on the greens at the Superb Lethbridge Country Club. He talked about his round after, "it was a tough day out on the course, started of really rough but work my way back to the top of the leaderboard. With the high wind speed's and the fast greens I was pleased with the way I played. Deffenetly room for improvement.Congrats to Matt Richot on his victory".

MJT final round provides tough finish for EGP members

Posted on August 8, 2013 at 5:45 PM Comments comments (0)

The final round of MJT In chestamere provides gloomy weather and spotty rain for the competitors. Grayson lead off with 4 over through 3 holes, and made the turn at 41. His back nice was solid except for the fact that 2 balls went OB on 17, to take him out of contention for low Lethbridian. Overall though it was not a bad week as he shot his lowest round in the second round with a 78, which is something positive to look forward to next year going forward. Drew Harvie started off with three straight bogeys, then three straight pars, than 2 bogeys in a row. He stepped up to the ninth, and tripled for a disappointing 43 front. It was a good back for Drew as he was 3 over heading to 16, jarred a wedge to about 8 feet and rolled in the putt. He played the final 3 holes in 2 under for a back nine 37 to top off a decent week and a 80. Darin Bertchi, who tried out for the team and currently sits 3rd behind Drew and Grayson shot 85 in the final round.

Day 2 better for EGP teammates, still not great

The second day of the MJT at Lakeside greens yeilded a lot of low scores on a day that was rype for scoring. Today was better for Grayson as he ended up shooting 78 for a respectable score through 36 holes of 166. Drew however did not have a very solid day as his first tee shot hit a tree on the left, giving him about 200 in on the par 4 1st, which measured 400 yards. Drew hit a 4 iron into the green, pin high right, and 2 putt for par. He went out in 42, a rough stretch of holes that included a triple and a double, with 2 bogeys to top the front nine off. He started 2 under on the back through 3 holes and let bad iron play spoil his round. Drew went double, double, double on the next three holes and ended up shooting 41 on the back for a OK round of 83 with a total of 157 through 36 holes. Drew is tied with fellow Lethbridge native and EGP tryoutee, Darin Bertchi, who went 76, 81 for a 157 total as well. Leader: 70-68 138 Drew Harvie T-11 74-83 157 Darin Bertchi T-11 76-81 157 Grayson Constable 14th 88-78 166

Elite Golf Program teammates go seperate ways on day 1

Posted on August 7, 2013 at 10:05 PM Comments comments (0)

On a beautiful day where the greens were slow and fairways were hard, Grayson Constable and Drew Harvie tied to conquer a lakeside greens course with water on 13 of it's 18 holes. Drew was near the leaderboard the whole way as he was 1 over on the 18th tee, hit a chuck-hook-sky hybrid and had 215 in to the pin over water. He elected to go for it. He chucked his hybrid and had to drop about 150 out, hit a solid 8 iron and 2 putted for a double bogey to sit in a tie for 3rd with 4 others at +3. It was different for Grayson as he would have been 78 but a fellow playing competitor, kept giving him unfair rule calls and ended up being 10 strokes in penalties.
