<div><p>Please welcome the newest member to Team OnCore, Professional golfer Erik Compton. Compton has officially made the switch to OnCore’s new VERO X1 tour ball. After shooting a 7-under par 65 in Monday’s qualifier at Banyan Cay in West Palm Beach, Erik is currently competing in this weeks Honda Classic.</p>

<p>Compton’s story is truly incredible.&nbsp; He is a two-time heart transplant recipient. When he was 9 years old, he was diagnosed with a heart condition that would eventually lead to two transplants, the first when he was 12 years old and the second taking place at 28 years old.</p>

<p>He is 41 now, currently competes on the Korn Ferry Tour and is making a run for a full-time return to the PGA Tour.</p>

<p>With 162 PGA Tour events under his belt, Compton is a highly-regarded golfer whose achievements are even more impressive given the medical challenges he’s had to overcome.&nbsp; His most notable career finish to date was a second-place finish in the 2014 U.S. Open at Pinehurst. &nbsp;At the <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Masters_Tournament">Masters Tournament</a> in April 2009, Compton received the <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ben_Hogan">Ben Hogan</a> Award, given annually to a golfer who has stayed active in the game despite a handicap or serious illness.</p>

<p>“Erik began testing the VERO X1 late last year after hearing about it from one of his other sponsors who had shot his first-ever bogey-free round with the ball,” commented Keith Blakely, OnCore CEO.&nbsp; “After several weeks of play-testing, Erik informed me that he was interested in making the change and was highly impressed with the ball’s overall performance.</p>

<p>OnCore has continued to leverage our proprietary materials expertise and perimeter weighting technology to create exceptional golf balls for players of all skill levels and we’re thrilled to have a competitor like Erik validating our success in that regard.&nbsp; We’re looking forward to being a part of Erik’s success this season and into the future.”</p>
