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

Congratulations to Darin Bertschi and Drew Harvie for clinching their spot in the Stranville Living Tournament of Champions October 15th at the Lethbridge Country Club. With all these events being cancelled a total of 27 events are on the schedule now, meaning to get into the TOC you need to win three times, which Bertschi achieved May 28th at the Spring Championship, and Harvie achieved that on July 7th at the Davis Invitational Junior Qualifier. Grayson Constable is the next cloest to clinching, with two wins (Drive, Chip and Putt, as well as the EGP Masters), his next win he'll join Drew and Darin October 15th.

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!

Congratulations to Darin Bertschi who finished in the top 4 at the MJT Banff Springs Event last weekend, Darin shot rounds of 80-75 to finish 4th, finishing 7 shots bhind eventual winner Jaxon Lynn. This is Darin's second top 5 of the MJT Season, finishing 4th again at the home event MJT Paradise Canyon, finishing one shot out of a 3 way playoff, after holding the 18 hole lead. Good job Darin!

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.
