I'm very familiar with the world of statistics and yes, you're right, 54 holes is not a representative sample size but way more representative than "they probably just didn't play as well as Tuesday...and that day they used the titleist proV1" or I like ball x because it feels better. The reason I stopped the test was that I was convinced that for the price diff, the C4 is at least equal in performance to the ProV1 if not better. That was good enough for me.
As for the blind "taste test", I contend the ball works for me I don't work for the ball. If by me knowing that I was hitting the C4 made me score better than the ProV then so be it. Whatever works. Don't forget I was a ProV fan boy before using this ball, if anything I was a skeptic, not a promoter of the new ball, so if anything, I would have been negatively biased towards the C4.
Also, as I stated in another thread, there were times when I was not aware of which ball I was hitting until the logo was in my line of sight, sometimes the approach shot, sometimes after the first putt, so it was semi blind if you will.
