OnCore Golf establishes international distribution agreements

BUFFALO, N.Y. -- OnCore Golf, a high technology golf company, announced that it had signed international distribution agreements covering the Japanese, Australian, New Zealand, and South African markets. The company is launching a proprietary, hollow core, golf ball that offers significant performance advantages over traditional solid core golf balls. The company will launch the ball officially at the 2013 PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, Fla., and has already received significant interest from abroad leading up to the show.

Adroit Distribution Ltd, based in Auckland, New Zealand, will handle distribution into Australian and New Zealand territories. Adroit Distribution's founder Neil Dorset commented, "We were one of the early evaluators of the OnCore ball, following their successful Kickstarter campaign. We distributed samples of the balls to local course pros who all commented very favorably on the product. The majority of pros indicated that they were very impressed with the ball's superior accuracy off the tee. Their reactions confirmed our belief that OnCore had an exciting product to offer golfers around the world. Given the extended golf season in many parts of Australia, we are very excited to be offering the product beginning with the 2013 golf season."

Separately, OnCore Golf has entered into an agreement with Infin8 Inc. ( www.infin8.co.jp ), exclusive distributor to the Japanese market. Sam Miyano, Infin8's Managing Partner remarked, "The Japanese market is very receptive to high technology products and what OnCore is offering with their hollow core technology is sure to catch fire here in Japan. There has never been a more unique golf ball in the history of the game."

In addition to signing distribution rights in Japan, New Zealand and Australia, OnCore Golf will work with Labelled British, to distribute the ball in South Africa, "We are incredibly excited with the launch of OnCore's new innovation in golf ball technology. South Africa is a fast growing golfing destination and we feel the product will assist in the growth of golf. We have a large distribution network and can't wait to supply the range early next year" Kevin Kyle - Managing Director of Labelled British

In preparation for their global launch, OnCore is looking to partner with other interested retailers, pro-shops and distributors around the world; "We are excited to debut the ball later this month at the PGA show and encourage those attending the show to stop by our booth and learn more about the next generation of ball technology," said Steve Coulton, Vice President and Co-Founder of OnCore Golf.
