Re: Golf balls at the rangeWhat kind of question is that? It's sort of like asking, "Unattended clubs outside the restroom at the range... do you nick 'em?"
No. Stealing range balls is theft. It's minor theft, but theft nonetheless. Most of the balls at my range are cheap yellow range balls with the black stripes, so it'd be obvious if you did it. When I do find the nice balls, such as the pristine Pro V1x I found in the bucket today, I consider it a chance to take a practice shot on a real ball. I put those aside until I'm warm, and use whatever club I'm most interested in practicing with. Then I hit it into the range and, if I'm lucky, watch it sail farther than the shots I was hitting with the range balls and get to leave with a fuzzy feeling.
