Gary Player is a South African professional golfer widely considered one of the greatest golfers ever. One of the most traveled athlete ever, Player accumulated nine major championships on the regular tour and nine Champions Tour major championship victories. At the age of 29, Player won the 1965 U.S. Open and became the only non-American to win all four majors in a career, known as the Career Grand Slam.
Player was only the third golfer in history to win the Career Grand Slam following Gene Sarazen and Ben Hogan. Only Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods have performed the feat since Gary. Player also holds the distinction of being the only man in golf to win the Grand Slam on both the regular and Champions Senior tours. He has 165 tournament win on six continents over six decades and was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 1974. In addition to his accomplishments in competitive play, Mr. Player is also a renowned golf course architect with over 400 design projects on five continents. In addition, he has authoried or co-written 36 golf books. His extensive philanthropy, focus on education and promotion of physical and mental fitness are all hallmarks of this iconic golfer.
With several patents already issued and more on the way, years of research, development efforts and millions of investment dollars, we were able to bring to market the world’s first and only hollow metal core golf ball, the MA-1.0. We also became only the second company in roughly 100 years to cause the USGA to rewrite the rules governing golf ball construction, paving the way for our hollow metal core golf ball to be deemed USGA conforming. Because we aren’t the one-trick pony types, we also created the AVANT, a low compression ball with unrivaled distance for golfers wanting a softer feel.
We optimized our MA-1.0 to bring a softer and longer version of the most accurate ball on the market due to our hollow metal core technology and called it the Caliber. In 2017 we developed and launched what many believe is the best premium tour ball on the planet –the ELIXR. It boasts the highest allowable initial velocity off the tee, amazing distance, exceptionally tight shot dispersion, and unparalleled stability in windy conditions. With unique advanced materials and design, the ELIXR provides perimeter weighting (created by our innovative high density particles in the mantle) for spin and accuracy, while providing an outstanding soft feel around the greens which makes it the most complete ball you will ever play. No matter which ball you choose, OnCore Golf balls are best in class and bring greatness to every shot.
Most importantly, it is our steadfast mission to give back and empower golfers around the world of all ages. Team OnCore is closely involved with volunteer coaching and mentoring at our First Tee chapters in Buffalo/Western New York in addition to being featured guest speakers at STEM camps teaching the golfing generations of tomorrow the technology and engineering behind our technology infused golf balls. We also sponsor the International Junior Masters tournament fielding talented young players from around the globe to compete in one of the most prestigious tournaments of the year. In summary, OnCore Golf is always looking to give more in gratitude for the support that we continue to receive from You.
