At OnCore, we routinely come into contact with amazing entrepreneurs innovating in the golf space. We wanted to highlight a few of those people and their products or services as we come to a close in 2014. We collaborate with some, help promote others, and some we’ve just come across through the glorious power of the internet. We’re all about innovation and so we get excited when we see other companies that encourage interest in the great game of golf. Here are five phenomenal companies that we think you should know about.
1) BombTech Golf- Owner and Captain, Sully will be the first to greet you when you visit his website www.bombtechgolf.com . He’s making custom drivers and hybrids in the bucolic confines of Vermont. Sully has a growing following of die hard golfers eager to buck the stalwarts. Check out his innovative approach to custom built drivers and latest tee shirts egging you on to hit it past the red tee’s.
2) Fore Performance- Not in Rochester? Not a problem! The owners of Fore Performance – Ryan Steenberg and Joe Lusardi- will fly to you. They train some of the best junior golfers in the world. On a recent meeting with Ryan, in walks Pittsford native Will Thompson, to train on Fore Performance’s tech’d out simulators. Ryan focuses on the strength training and Joe on the swing analysis.
3) Edel Golf- these custom wedges rock! Love the artistic approach and superior craftsmanship. Direct from Edel “Variable face thickness produces optimal feel and forgiveness, and heel toe weighting increases stability and creates a larger sweet spot” http://edelgolf.com/
4) Urban Putt- When talented designers, artists, architects and engineers have a little bit too much time on their hands this is what happens! The ultimate miniature golf course in the Bay area, funded partially through Kickstarter! The photos don’t do this project justice, please watch the video! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RJjsWTlxR-s
