The course I usually play has few opportunities to lose balls, so I typically start with four -- two odd and two even. I play an odd-numbered ball on holes 1, 3, 5, etc. and even-numbered ball on 2, 4, 6, etc. But when I play an unfamiliar course I start with 6. I usually play balls for two rounds or so (Bridgestone B330-RXS, fairly durable) and then donate them to junior golf.
