The pro's get regular golf balls to practice with from what I understand.

If I was a multimillionaire pro, I'd have my own new batch of ProV1x's brought to hit at each range session. Donate them to the First Tee or another kids program after.

There's no need really. The ball flights aren't going to change that much between a normal range ball or a top shelf ball. When they're on the range, they're simply warming up and working on striking the ball well and testing the waters. The ProV1x's qualities are only going to come in to play in the short game and putting for the most part. Despite what people think about low-spin balls not slicing or hooking as much, the numbers actually don't change that much.

Can't argue with that. But if it was pennies to me, I'd probably do it anyhow! Haha

They get balls of their choice.

There are bags of ProV1, ProV1X, Callaway, Srixon, Nike,  whatever  - all available to them

They ONLY hit the balls they use in tournaments.

Interesting. I was actually wondering about this too. First time I saw a range use top end balls was when I flew to Arizona on a golf trip. We get range rocks up here in Canada :D

They use the ball they play on the course, period.

The tour provides range balls for use during tournament week. Last weeks Air Capital Classic had Bridgestone on the range.
