OnCore’s new Genius golf ball with GPS technology (2018 PGA Show)

Published

on

Why isn’t there a way to track your golf ball when it’s lost? Why can’t the golf ball deliver you data from the shot? OnCore — the company that brought the golfing world hollow golf balls with metal cores — answers those questions with its new Genius golf ball.

The Genius golf ball, which has raised over $110,000, has a chip in the core that, in conjunction with a phone app, can track you golf ball, and provide feedback such as ball velocity, spin rate, spin direction, carry and more.

OnCore had a prototype of the golf ball on display at the 2018 PGA Show. While the company didn’t reveal pricing, it did say the golf ball will hit retail “sometime in quarter 3 or quarter 4.”

    This video review of an actual product was posted in 2010. I saw the ball in Prazza’s booth at the 2011 PGA show. So not new at all.

      It’s not about finding your ball its about digitally retrieving data pertaining to your swing, its an information gathering device.

    The idea’s ok; getting my buddy who keeps slicing it into the woods yet always finds his ball sitting up with a shot into the green, to use it… that would be genius.

    But will it fly like Callaways new Chrome Soft and spin like a Pro V?

    Why not just embed a simple beeper in the ball that beeps for 2 minute after being hit?
    That would improve pace of play out of the rough!
