OnCore Welcomes Golf Industry Executive to Board of Directors

BUFFALO, N.Y., April 30, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- OnCore Golf, producers of the world's only USGA conforming hollow-metal core golf ball, announced today that Joseph J. White has been elected to the company's Board of Directors. White is a thirty-year veteran of the golf industry with experience in international businesses, sports marketing, business "start-ups", and long range business development.

"I am delighted and honored to be elected to the Board of Directors of OnCore™ Golf .  Since learning about the patented Hollow Metal Core technology behind the MA-1.0™ golf ball, I've been impressed that not only is it a game-changing evolution of golf ball design and construction, but that it represents a significant contribution to the enjoyment of the game by allowing players of all handicaps to play at a higher level.  What really drew me to the company and its patented innovation is the fact that unlike "game improving or illegal golf balls," OnCore Golf's core technology has now been accepted by the USGA and included in balls that fully conform to the Rules of Golf.   This technology is the only one that I am aware of that can generate significant enhancements of a ball's rifle spin to give a golfer's drives more accurate distance off the tee and yet, by applying these same unique spin properties around and on the greens, it provides better touch and putter face control where it counts the most.  This is extremely critical to Tour and better players."

The former Dunlop executive will be advising the company on a wide range of strategic, operational, and financial matters.  His prior experience includes numerous notable accomplishments including developing branding, packaging and advertising for the Dunlop XLT-15, DDH, DDH Tour and related DDH brands, sourcing of Dunlop's Tour balls from Sumitomo's (now Srixon) factories in Osaka, Japan, and negotiating Yamaha Sports' golf ball business relationship with Bridgestone while launching the brand in Europe.  Joe was previously the President of Ajay, Inc., Gary Player Sports, and is currently the CEO of Sector Sports.

 "I plan to use my decades long collective experience in the business of golf to assist the management team at OnCore Golf in bringing our patented golf ball technologies to the attention of both to the greater golfing public and to the at-large golf industry where growing the game and imparting greater game enjoyment will benefit everyone," he commented.
Keith Blakely, Chairman of OnCore Golf, added: "Joe is a terrific addition to the OnCore board with his decades of operational, financial, sales, and strategic experience.  He is highly regarded and well-connected in the industry and will be of tremendous help in achieving OnCore's full potential.  With a number of new products and exciting technologies in our pipeline, we are very fortunate to have Joe's insight and guidance as we move forward and establish OnCore as a leading developer of technology-based golf balls and related products appropriate for all levels of golfers."
