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 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. Darin also takes over Player of the Year race, with 14pts, he's one clear of Jeff Masse and two clear of Drew Harvie. Darin joins Drew Harvie (March) and Jeff Masse (April) as other players to win Player of the Month.


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!

Power Rankings: EGP Regular Season Opener at Henderson Lake Golf Club

Posted on April 8, 2014 at 10:45 AM Comments comments (0)
The EGP Regular Season is just 24 hours away, and with that in mind, let's see who's trending and who's not in this weeks power rankings. 1. Jeff Masse -Coming off two second place finishes in the Pre-Season (Evergreen Open, EGPGC-Par 3 Invitational) and is currently is second in the EGP Cup standings, and is the second highest ranked player in the field, expect him to be in contention. 2. Mason Harder -Coming off his win at the EGPGC-Par 3 Invitational, should be rolling and loves Henderson. The years biggest jumper so far in the SAJGR at 11th, he's the third highest ranked in the field, currently leads the EGP Cup Standings by a wide margin and could add to that this week. 3. Trey Brandt -Tied second at the EGPGC, and making his EGP member debut (along with Mason and Aidan) but his accuracy and skill arounds the greens should come in handy at Henderson with the small greens that demand pin-point accuracy. Sitting in 3rd in the EGP Cup standings. 4. Grayson Constable -Coming off a disappointing fourth at the EGPGC-Par 3, but should look to get his rhythm back at a nice and short Henderson set-up, the highest ranked player in the field should help him with confidence and give him a swagger. 5. Lukas Ferguson -Hasn't completed in a full EGP event, but has shown signs of positive improvement over the winter. Technically it's his EGP Cup debut, but played in the EGPGC-Par 3 Invitational before WD'ing on his 19th green. 6. Aidan Peacock -Making his EGP Cup debut, with big improvement from last year in his game, this event will be just getting back into the tournament flow and rythym. Look for positive signs and him to start trending in the right direction
