The innovators of today create the standards of tomorrow. What we see transpiring in the golf industry is part of a much larger, dynamic, and natural tug of war between progress and stability. The decline in participation over the last 5 years has created an economic vacuum, and entrepreneurs like Blakely are setting up shop at the intersection of these two forces, creating solutions to the biggest problems golfer’s face in today’s world.
In Bret's case, the company he co-founded in 2009 with his close friend Steve Colton, OnCore Golf, has a clear mission: grow the game by designing a golf ball that helps the player score better, more often, and therefore have more fun in less time. OnCore’s patented technology dares to spare us those precious, valuable inches and feet, but the promise didn’t come easily. I was personally inspired by Bret’s story, and I hope you are too.
We hope you enjoy part 1 of our conversation with Bret Blakely. Be sure to check back next week as we get further into the unfolding story of OnCore Golf. Bret takes us through the difficult challenges, temporary defeats, and ultimately, historic triumphs he and the rest of the team have experienced since getting started back in 2009. You don’t want to miss it.
