With Billy cashing in on his first round bye in the Champions League Quarterfinals, he reclaims the top spot in the tour after Brice spent 7 weeks at number one.  DeAngelo jumps into the 5th spot with help from what is now the second largest handicap delta. He also got some points for a group stage match with Deji that I didn’t include in last week’s charts. 

Congrats guys, we passed the official halfway mark of the 2021 season last Friday! We celebrated with the All-Star Break on Saturday at Fox Hills. It was an unexpected challenge as heavy rains the night before forced walking only conditions. The morning event was the 3-Club challenge, one that I had personally been looking forward to all season. With a 4-iron, 7-iron and 56 degree I came out on top with Deji in second and Brice in third after a playoff hole between him, Billy and Brandon. Brandon hit two great shots and was looking at a 20 foot birdie putt while Billy and Brice found the green on their 4th shots. Brice made a nice 12 footer to save bogey using the sand wedge at the equator technique. Brandon, needing just two putts to ensure victory, ended up taking 4 putts to find the cup after using the sole of…

Another event completed and some more big moves were made in the standings.Nick had himself quite the week… Starting on Friday he defeated Brice 4&2 and Will 5&4 at The Myth, getting him to 2-0 in his Group Stage matches. Shooting a 76, he also took over the crown for King of the Course With just a one shot lead after Saturday at the Youth Classic, he shot a 76 to Amir’s 80 to take the win by 5 strokes and take the trophy as our first Detroit Youth Classic champion With one of the biggest jumps in the standings to date, he went from 15th to 3rd After losing on Friday to Nick, Will was able to rebound for the weekend and earn a spot in the final group on Sunday after a first round 90. While he may not have been fighting for the overall win, he shot an 85…

Not a lot of action this past week, but a few switch-ups in the top 10 of the standings -Bowker gets back into the top 10 after getting his GHIN and getting some rounds in the books pushing Andrew on the outside looking in -Chase takes 4th spot from Andres, who is riding the scramble victory

Just like the weather, Week 13 was a wash for most of the EGA roster with only a few highlights. -Chase jumps into the top 5 of the standings with a match win against Brendon -Brandon drops into the green figures, dipping below his Week 1 handicap by 4 tenths to jump back into the top 5. -DeAngelo got his official handicap established and jumped up a few spots to tie Deji and Ali in 12th.  -Brice was able to break the tie for King of the Course at Downing Farms with a 76. His lead now extends beyond 1,000 points over Billy in second. Flashback to Week 7, Billy had jumped out to a near 1,900 point advantage, which was overcome in just 3 weeks by our current number 1. How long can Brice hold on to the top spot? Check out the updated rankings/score animated chart through week 13…

We have surpassed the 3,000 point mark as Brice remains on top despite some match wins from second place holder, Bill George. Don’t fret though if you find yourself further down the leaderboard, as there are still a lot of points up for grabs 5,250 event points still to be won 129 days left for round tracking = 3,225 points if you played everyday until Oct 31st King of Course are certainly not decided, I believe we can do better than the 89 and 91 for The Myth and Devil’s Ridge Group D met last Saturday and completed all of their matches. Billy had already defeated Andrew earlier in the year and added a W with a win over Ali 4&3. Dan was able to match that as he beat Andrew 4&3 and Ali 1up, and tied his match against Billy, giving him a boost up the leaderboard to 5th…

Get his signature while you can, our very own Brice Kinney could be going pro by next year at the rate he’s currently on. He has come into full form mid-season and he’s putting in some great rounds, highlighted by an even-par 71 at Golden Hawk. He now sits at a 6.4 handicap, with the largest delta of the season so far. That puts him back into first place.  Further down the standings, Jake and Deji are hanging on to the 9th and 10th spots but could be relegated by match wins from Ali and Dan as their group meets at Fieldstone this weekend to battle it out. Billy will look to reclaim that top spot with a couple wins of his own. 

After Billy shot up the points in last week’s rankings, Brice has punched back with a strong week bringing him back into second. Matching the 78 at Downing Farms, he now shares King of the Course with Billy. He was also able to shoot an 89 at The Myth, which beats the current score of 90 he and Brandon had both posted.  As many of us are hitting full stride we’re starting to see some handicaps dropping. Billy, Brice, Brendon and Chase are all down from their week 1 handicaps.

We’re back after a week hiatus from the weekly updates and, as you can see from the rankings below, the points race has really taken off after our first event of the year, the Spring Scramble. Billy retakes the top spot after bagging just shy of 2,000 points between Week 6 and Week 8. Andres, our other winner from the scramble comes from nowhere to take over 3rd in the rankings. Kyle and Jake put in a solid performance in the scramble and bank some much needed points, taking second after winning a playoff hole against Deji and Brice. Billy was also able to snatch away King of the Course at Downing with a 78, a fantastic score that could hold up for some time. Brice has jumped to a large lead in the rounds played, closing in on 20 in just under two months time.
