Anyone ever get some of the tour only ProV1 balls?

I saw that a few players on tour use a lower spin version of the ProV (Rickie Fowler) and was wondering where I could get my hands on some.

Potentially. I am trying to hunt down the video where Rickie talks about it. He said its a lower spin version of the Pro V1

Kevin Na was playing a slightly different Pro V1x, and picked up a little ball speed.

Or that might have been psychological.
On Sundays, I used to play hickory

Hmm I know Callaway (SRs?) had a bunch of different models for tour use that could be found on RBG or Dallas or one of those sites.  Unsure of any ProV tour only balls in the last decade

Correct. All of the major OEM ball manufacturers have balls on the tours that are on the conforming ball list that are not available at retail. Numerous threads and posts about it here.
