Who are the Top 3 to look for in 2015?

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?

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.
