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; The Greens inaugural Las Vegas Invitational Celebrity Golf Tournament and 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 28-30 includes 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 1-2) 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.”
