OnCore Golf sponsors The Greens Las Vegas Invitational Celebrity Golf Tournament and George Lopez’s Celebrity Golf Classic

BUFFALO, N.Y. OnCore Golf Technology the Buffalo, New York-based golf ball and technology company is gearing up for a West Coast circuit sponsoring two events; (1) The Greens inaugural Las Vegas Invitational Celebrity Golf Tournament and (2) the George Lopez Celebrity Golf Classic (Burbank, CA).  Known for their award-winning perimeter-weighted suite of golf balls, the demand for OnCore Golf being the featured golf ball at high-profiled events is becoming the new normal.

“We are seeing an acceleration in requests for OnCore to be involved in these high-profiled events,” said Bret Blakely, OnCore Golf co-founder. “Athletes and celebrities alike are becoming huge fans of OnCore Golf because of the exceptional performance of our golf balls.  After experiencing our ball’s performance at a tournament, many of these avid golfers ask us to participate in their own sponsored events.  We are proud of how many of these high-profile names (and outstanding golfers) are converting to our VERO X1 or ELIXR tour balls exclusively.”

The Inaugural Greens tournament – being held April 28th – 30th – is expected to include a star-studded field of more than 40 sports and entertainment personalities who will head to Las Vegas to compete in the tournament across 3 days. The field of participants already features World Series, Super Bowl, and NBA Champions as well as film, television, and music stars who will be competing for over $400,000 in cash and prizes. Proceeds from the event also are donated back to the First Tee, an organization that focuses on providing access to the game of golf as a platform to teach life skills to underprivileged youth.

“On behalf of my team here at The Greens, we are excited to have OnCore as our official ball sponsor at our Las Vegas Invitational together with our partner Resorts World Las Vegas,” said Mike Sherman, co-founder. “We’re happy to welcome OnCore to The Greens and look forward to future events together!”

The George Lopez Celebrity Classic (May 1st - 2nd) is an event that OnCore Golf has been involved with for over five years. “Golfing for a Great Cause” proceeds from the George Lopez Celebrity Classic promotes the awareness for kidney disease and the important of organ donation.

"We have established an awesome relationship that now goes back many years with OnCore Golf for the George Lopez Celebrity Golf Tournament," said George Lopez. "We are happy to have the team back at this year's tournament and always appreciate their support!"

Constructing a golf ball for every golfer, OnCore customers have the choice between three outstanding and award-winning products.  The AVANT 55 has a large soft inner core for low compression, soft feel, and straighter, longer shots off the tee. A perfect balance of flight and control for golfers with lower swing speeds, its soft surlyn cover allows for optimal trajectory and playability. The ELIXR, a three-piece tour ball with perimeter-weighting for tight shot-dispersion, stability in the wind, and a unique polybutadiene core that delivers outstanding coefficient of restitution (CoR) for higher ball speed, resulting in more carry and roll, superior greenside control, durability and unmatched performance in its category. The VERO X1 is OnCore’s premier tour ball and features enhanced perimeter-weighting generating the highest allowable velocity off the club face and up to 60% less sidespin. The result? Distance that must be seen to be believed along with a thin cast urethane cover for excellent spin and responsiveness around the greens.
