Thank you Patrick for a phenomenal review on our Avant ball! Big fan of your golf photography.
We pride ourselves on building the most innovative and disruptive golf ball technologies- with that said when we get reviews like these, everyday, it feels good to share with the world!
Chris B left the following 5 star review for the AVANT
Great Balls of Fire.
I don't know if it's me or the ball yet, but I seem to hit it farther and straighter. I told the boys that I bought these balls that are designed to go straight. They said ya, sure, ok. The first time I hit one it went right down the middle. They all said wow. I normally drive about 200 yds. That one went 240 and felt so good. I now tell them I'm going to use my straight ball and they say, that's not fair. My wife says I want some of those! Guess I need to buy more. Will you be making pink?

Tips from OnCore LPGA teaching instructor Courtney Mahon on how to hit a fried egg bunker shot. Hood the club face, weight on front foot, ball in center of stance, steep angle of approach...simple right? Easier said than done so practice, practice, practice and you will ace this shot!
We all know intuitively that accuracy is tantamount to a well played round of golf. The habitual scramblers out there may disagree, but you're certainly a minority. Most of us mere mortals that end up in the tree's might as well post the double bogey or possibly worse before we even hit the green. Figure 8's and snowman aside, keeping it in the short grass will give you access to more greens in regulation and more pars and birdies, plain and simple!
Are you a long hitter that struggles to keep the ball in play? Try teeing off with your 3 wood instead of the big dog occasionally and learn to control your misses. Consider adding a hybrid to your arsenal and learn be deadly accurate with it. Consider playing an OnCore ball as well- Okay you knew it was coming...a shameless product plug. But let me digress a bit on spin, specifically your golf balls spin...
Every golf ball has three components of spin- backspin lifts the ball, side-spin pulls it left or right and rifle spin stabilizes the ball. Our Avant golf ball is one of the lowest spinning, read backspin, off the driver. Why is this important? Less backspin also means less sidespin which means straighter shots off the tee. It also means MORE distance! This is a phenomenal combination in golf and something you should look for regardless of what company's ball you play.
Our Caliber golf ball has more rifle spin. Despite a slightly higher backspin off the driver, the hollow core technology promotes increased rifle spin which in turn stabilizes the ball and give you a tighter shot dispersion. More fairways in a round leads to lower scores and one happy golfer.
A customer wrote in asking why a 65 compression ball would be good for a high swing speed like his? We put the question to our handy dandy engineer, here is his response;
"Low compression does not mean distance is impaired anymore. Core chemistry is such that we can make a soft core without giving up speed. Also, lower compression helps with lower spin, particularly off the tee. Spin around the greens is mainly controlled by cover hardness.
Another side benefit is that the ball feels much better. Everyone is going to lower compression product to promote improved feel."

"OnCore Golf Avant is a terrific golf ball that makes it even more enticing considering it’s price point. A lot of bang for the golfer buck. Long, soft feel and durable. Nothing but positives for the Avant. It’s price per dozen is $20 USD. If you’re looking for a ball that is “off the beaten track” than give this “indie” golf ball a try. Go ahead… #beMOREwithONcore."
Congrats to Xeve Perez for winning the Georgia State Championships! Youngest recorded win with our Avant ball. Thanks for sharing Team Xeve
We are proud to announce that the all new Caliber is finally available online, and on the shelves of your local golf shop (we hope!). With the newest in hollow core technology, this ball allows both the average and experienced golfer to achieve greater accuracy and dominate the fairways.
The features include an 80 compression, 392 dimple pattern, and a .9 inch hollow metal core surrounded by our SoftCell technology. We have optimized our innovative hollow metal core technology to offer you a ball that travels further while providing you more control and accuracy.
By reducing side spin and increasing rifle spin, the Caliber’s core allows the ball to travel along a straight trajectory similar to a bullet leaving the barrel. This technology, primarily improving your ball flight, adds an additional bonus on the putting greens. Due to perimeter weighting the ball is able to roll on a true path. This is akin to creating a wide track tire effect and allows the ball to hold a more stable line on putts.
A couple of months ago, I was contacted by the director of the Western New York chapter of First Tee. First Tee is an incredible program that I think most folks in the golf industry know about and respect their mission to “encourage and inspire positive values and healthy choices through the experience of golf”. As millennial aged founders of a golf ball/lifestyle company, Steve Coulton and I have been keen on involving ourselves with organizations like First Tee. As of this month, I’ve jumped head first into this and have already felt the reward of working with these kids.
It started with providing some golf balls for the groups of kids that are in the program which was a no brainer but I wanted more. I wanted to interact and create a bond with the kids as well. One of the first things I noticed upon arriving to meet some of the coaches and the groups of young First Tee participants is that it was a really diverse group, which I love. I immediately started to reflect on how powerful it was for me having an incredibly diverse group of friends growing up. I had friends of all races, religions and economic backgrounds. From an early age it opened my eyes to other cultures and helped me develop a perspective about the value of “being different” while I was growing up. To be honest, I think that exposure to people different than myself actually played a huge role in what would be the vision for OnCore.
After attending several classes, multiple high fives and fist bumps and a few goofy faced pictures with the kids, the First Tee organizers asked if I would come and talk to the kids about “following your dreams, perseverance and the story of OnCore”. The story of OnCore is much like the story of our world and I was happy to deliver a positive message to the kids through the story and experiences as a result of OnCore Golf.
I asked the kids if they thought that there were people who were afraid of others, simply because they were different from them. They said yes. I asked if they thought that people sometimes judged others based on the way they look or where they grew up or the religion they practiced. Again, they said yes. I asked if they thought they could learn a lot from someone who was different from them and has had different experiences growing up. They said yes. This is where the story of OnCore and the story of society tie together seamlessly.
The hollow metal core ball we have created through OnCore Golf was targeted and rejected based on it looking different than other golf balls. We were told that it would never be allowed before it was even tested. The game of golf went through a long time of exclusivity rather than inclusivity and only now is that starting to change. I tried to deliver the message that it is our differences that that make the world a beautiful place. We should seek out and celebrate the diversity in humanity and experiences just as we took pride in how different our golf ball was. To start a golf ball company by being the same as every other ball manufacturer would have been insanity. The reason that our golf ball was rejected – unique construction and performance – is the reason that OnCore Golf is now a golf ball brand being sold around the world in 21 countries and in all 50 states. It was OnCore’s perseverance and its willingness to be different which helped us overcome that rejection and eventually be accepted in the industry (and by the USGA). It is our differences that separate us from the rest and I hope that my message empowered these young minds to believe that the parts of them that are different are also the most beautiful and important and will help shape their perspective for the future. I asked the kids to promise me that they would seek out someone different from them every day and try to learn something from them. I wish that more adults in this country would promote that message because here at OnCore Golf we are not in the golf industry to build walls…we are here to build bridges and I am grateful to be doing anything I can to establish a stronger foundation upon which to build.
