The support from OnCore will allow us to help more young minority professionals in their quest to reach the PGA TOUR,” said Kenneth Bentley, APGA CEO. “OnCore Golf’s mission, values and determination in growing the game of golf to players of all backgrounds made this partnership even easier to solidify.”
