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.

This.

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

    • It seems from the ratings that I have seen that, like me, there were a lot of people watching the final round of golf for both the women and the men at the Rio Olympics. The ratings for the men were in fact, second only to the Masters. That is truly fantastic to hear. Going into this Olympics, at least on the men's side, you might think that we were set for a complete disaster. All but a few of the high profile names dropped out for multiple reasons. Pika, safety, or the real reason - just plain tired. I suspect all that didn't play sort of wished they did. They will come out and say that they didn't miss it, because they don't want to look stupid, but the reality is they probably have a pit in their stomach for missing the first Olympics in over 100 years. I am talking about Jason Day, Jordan Spieth, and yes I suspect even Rory McIlroy.

    • Let us know how it goes when you get them.
    • According to GAME GOLF, I have 68% GIR and 13% birdies. 13%/68% (I almost never chip in for birdie) = 19.12%.
    • Damn dude, 4.1?  Wow.  I think you and I were about even when I joined here a couple years ago, 6-something.  You're going in the right direction, I'm headed the other way.  I'm actually at 9.4 at the minute but haven't updated here cuz it's painful and I consider it temporary .  Hand pain gone, actually went to the range this week, 1st time in a year.  So, I plan to throw down a 78 or so and be back under 9 by end of day, fingers crossed.  Keep rolling. No idea what my birdie conversion rate is, I'd guess pretty respectable cuz my putting never left me.
