BUFFALO, NY, June 12, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ -- OnCore Golf is pleased to announce that PGA Professional Michael Hebert, a successful player on the Web.com Tour, has qualified for the 2018 U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club in Southampton, NY (June 14, 2018 – June 17, 2018).
Qualifying at Ansley Golf Club on the Settindown Creek Course in Georgia, Hebert tied for first in a field of 43, shooting two-under par at the 36-hole qualifier on Monday.
The 118th US Open, one of the most difficult tournaments to enter, is the first Major at which the ELIXR will be played.
"I've yet to play a ball that has the versatility of the ELIXR ball. The ball is both fast and controlled coming off the driver face and has given me an extremely soft touch around the greens to execute any type of shot that I may need," said Hebert.
"The golf world is becoming increasingly aware of OnCore Golf because of our emphasis on continuous innovation – from core to cover – and the performance advantages that those improvements deliver to golfers of all skill levels," stated Keith Blakely, CEO of OnCore Golf. "Our strategy from day one has been to let our golf balls speak for themselves. Once players are willing to give our product a test and compare it to the ball they traditionally play, they will experience how game-changing the ELIXR is."
Brian McGahey, OnCore's Director of Business and Player Development, commented: "Last year, shortly after the ELIXR was launched, professional golfer and three-time PGA Tour winner Fulton Allem predicted 'I think this ball will win a Major in the next two to three years.' We're looking forward to his prediction coming true and wish Michael Hebert best of luck in making that happen."
This is Michael Hebert's first US Open. He tees off on Thursday at 2:42 PM and Friday at 8:57 AM. Follow his journey this week via OnCore Golf's Instagram account @OnCoreGolf.
