Buffalo, NY. OnCore Golf ambassador and golf legend Gary Player will be teeing it up in Augusta for the third consecutive ceremonial tee shot with an OnCore tour ball. Along with Jack Nicklaus and Lee Elder, the Black Knight will be kicking off what is golf’s most famous and anticipated event each year. For Player, this year is particularly meaningful as it is the 60thanniversary of Gary’s first Masters win and green jacket ceremony.
“We’re thrilled to be associated with Mr. Player – his accomplishments, his character, and his impact on the game – here and around the globe are unmatched,” commented OnCore’s CEO Keith Blakely. “He has served as a role model for golfers everywhere with his emphasis on physical fitness, philanthropy, and personal integrity and wherever he goes, he is approached by individuals who thank him for personally inspiring or affecting their lives.”
Player used the OnCore ELIXR tour ball in 2019 for both the Par 3 tournament and the ceremonial tee shot. In 2020, OnCore introduced the VERO X1 – a tour ball designed for the best players in the world but offering performance advantages to players of all skill levels. After playtesting it for several weeks after its introduction last year, Gary commented in a call to Blakely: “I’ve never played a better ball.”
