3 of our 4 semifinalists are decided with Billy George taking on Brendon Phelan and Brandon Harris awaiting the winner of Brandon Fiting and Nick Ludka.  -Brandon Harris defeated Deji Adebiyi 2up at Pheasant Run to advance -Billy Geroge and Will Bass played their remaining 4 holes yesterday. After halving the first hole, Billy took a one up lead after 16 with a perfect drive and an approach shot that left him inside of a foot for a tap-in birdie. They both found trouble off the tee on 18 after halving the par 3 17th. Billy rebounded to win the hole and win the match 2up The race at the top of the standings remains close as the top 3 are all within 150 points with Billy just edging out Brice for top spot with the match win.

We are now in the quarterfinal round of the Champions League knockout bracket. Let’s take a look at our matchups -Deji Adebiyi will be re-playing a group stage match against Brandon Harris. Brandon got the W the first time around but who comes out on top when it matters? -Brendon Phelan gets a bye straight to the semifinals, an early wedding gift -Brandon Fiting and Nick Ludka, our two lowest handicappers, will be squaring off -Billy George and Will Bass are currently 2/3 of the way through their match. They started play at Hilltop on Tuesday and got hit with some heavy rains starting on the 4th hole. They stuck it out for as long as they could but ended up calling it quits after 14. The match currently stands all square with 4 holes left to play Awesome to see that we have 4 players in contention to win it all…

Brendon Phelan pulled off a close win in the Saturday Showdown against Ali Beydoun to advance to the quarterfinals of the Champions League and become the second player through to the next round. He now sits in 5th place in the overall standings. A whole lot of matches will be taking place this weekend. -Daniel Mullan and Deji Adebiyi will be playing at Hilltop -DeAngelo Barrow and Brandon Harris will be playing at Northville Hills Golf Club -Brandon Fiting and Andrew Alexander will play their match at the Myth -Chase Kreger and Will Bass will be teeing it off at Devil’s Ridge on Sunday

We’ve got an exciting weekend coming up with a double header feature for our Round 1 matches. The winner of each match will square off against each other in the Quarterfinals.  Brice and Bowker squared off in the group stage with Bowker coming out victorious. Brice comes into this one as the underdog as the 13th seed but needs a win to keep pace with Billy in pursuit of the Black Jacket and EGA Tour glory. Bowker, with the 4th seed, will be hoping his 34 handicap will be enough to rattle Brice once again and allow him to sail smoothly into the next round. Taking place in neutral territory at Rouge Park, this is going to be a good one folks. In our second match we have Phelan in the 5th seed against Ali, the 12th seed. These guys have not played one another before so this could come…

Not much change in the standings for this week, however handicap degradation now takes effect. Here’s how it shakes out…

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…
