Loving the Originals, plenty of room for the toes to move freely and absolutely zero heel slip. Also couldn't be happier with the comfort. My Eccos are gonna collect dust. These are the best golf shoes I have worn.
I was a sportswriter about 20 years ago and did a story on the behind-the-scenes details of running a pro golf tournament. I was told that various manufacturers each provided a few thousand balls so players using that ball in competition would have the same model to practice with. Every few hours the machines would collect the balls and volunteers would wash and sort them. At the end of the week the balls (marked "practice") would be donated to local junior golf. As far as I know, that's still how it's done. I'm guessing that today they would provide Pro V-1 and Pro V-1x, Taylormade TP5 and TP5x, Bridgestone B330, Srixon Z-Star, Callaway Chrome Soft and Chrome Soft x, etc.
I've been a volunteer working the range at LPGA tournaments and have noticed that only Pro V-1s are available for practice. They are re-used for several tournaments and then replaced. Some players who don't like that ball bring their own to hit on the range but have no way to get them back.
Yeah, but the fairway is only 20 yards wide!
I really don’t get this whole, it’s boring thing.
It’s a really long, hard golf course. The best players in the world are struggling. Doesn’t seem so boring to me…
