  1. I wonder if they are using new ProV1s or went and got bags of used TopFlites? 

    The question I have is that at a mile does a golf ball still sink?  When you hit one into the lake, even close to the surface, they will float around a little when you are trying to pick it out.

    I wondered why they are not pumping pebbles mixed with the heavy oil.  Even better would be something like a golf ball, but heavier, and would expand over time after it is exposed to water in the site.
