“Erik is the perfect OnCore Ambassador to kick off the Speaker Series,” says OnCore Co-Founder Bret Blakely. “He embodies everything our brand stands for – perseverance and performance on the golf course, and integrity and dedication to his friends, family and fans of it.  We’re excited to have our Club OnCore members engage with Erik tomorrow evening.” 

Compton switched to OnCore’s VERO X1 in 2021 after rigorously testing the four-piece, 85 compression ball on and off the golf course and firing a seven-under-par round in competition. In 2022, he shifted to the recently released VERO X2, which features a firmer feel and higher compression (95), and achieved the lowest scoring average of his career, 69.5. 

Club OnCore members had the opportunity to submit questions in advance via the club’s exclusive Facebook Group for Compton to answer during the live session. To learn more about Club OnCore and Club OnCore Plus, visit
