February 29, 2012 (Buffalo, NY) OnCore Golf announced today the addition of Jeffrey Herold to its growing Board of Advisors. Jeffrey is the founder and CEO of Club Glove, a company whose products are used by more touring professionals than any other product in golf. Jeff was recently nominated alongside Annika Sorenstam and legendary club designer Jim Flood for the 2012 ING Business Achievement award. Jeff had this to say; “Bringing a new golf ball into this world is like stepping into the ring with not one, but three heavyweights. It’s going to take hard work and careful consideration to generate success. The beauty is they have the technology that the best players in the world will soon demand so I am very optimistic about their chances. I imagine that people didn’t give me very good odds either when I started Club Glove in 1990. But today, our travel golf bags are used by more than 90% of PGA Tour players and were named one of the top 10 innovations in golf in the last 20 years by Golf Digest!”
Herold comes with 22 years of industry knowledge and relationships. OnCore plans to utilize his expertise in the areas of marketing, sales, advertising, and licensing. OnCore’s president Bret Blakely discussed the implications of Jeff’s advisory position; “We think the addition of Jeff shows OnCore’s commitment to building a world class team in preparation for our national launch of the Omen™ this spring. A next generation ball currently in development will be released later this year.” Steve Coulton, OnCore’s vice president remarked; “When I learned about Jeff’s journey in the industry that began with the 1991 PGA Merchandise Show I was immediately impressed with the entrepreneurism that has brought him to the level that the Club Glove brand has become today. We look forward to learning from Jeff’s experiences and are very excited about the immediate value he adds to our company.”
