How many balls - Page 2

post #19 of 46

I just have a pocket on my bag full of balls. I tend to put two in my pocket at a time.

post #20 of 46

I carry 4-6 balls with me.  I don't need the extra wieght.  At home, I've got probably 200 junk balls, 4 dozen good balls, and 3 dozen in between.  I usually buy a bunch before the season.  I bought 6 dozen this year and shouldn't have to buy anymore.

I begin my round with three balls. Two reasons, I walk and am concerned with weight and two, I always find a dozen or so.

 

I have about 40 dozen mint balls in my office closet and about 20 dozen less than mint in the garage. I give away the less than mints to high school golf teams from some of the poorer schools.

Revive this thread. I just bought a sun mountain four 5 and will start carrying this year. Wondering how many balls most people bring. I'm around 15-20 balls but am scared that's to heavy. Lately I Havnt been losing many but can get a nasty slice once in a while were I just lose my driver.

I carry up to a dozen since that's about how many the pouch on my bag holds.  I usually have a box in the trunk of my car for when the pouch gets low but other than that I don't keep any around.

I like to have 2-3 sleeves of new balls plus I always have a half dozen used or found balls in the bag.

I can't help myself, my avatar picture is the side pocket of my golf bag, say no more. I have about 17 sleeves of balls in there all tour balls. When callaway, Nike, taylormade bring out a new tour ball, I immediately buy a box, play it and if I like them I will continue to use them. I am happy with most of the tour balls but mostly play Nike rzn platinum or callaway sr 3 at the moment.

I allow myself ONE sleeve of new balls per round ... if I lose those, I have to dig into the bottom of the ball bag & play old ratty found balls.    It's a good incentive to play in control and not lose balls...

If I am carrying the bag which I am trying to do more I limit how many balls.  6 at the most.  I don't have junk balls or found balls because I won't play them.  If they are good I give them away.  If they are iffy I drop them in the side of a tee.

 

Costo was clearing out their Yellow Callaway 4 piece urethane covered balls for $15 a dozen.  It was the ball I prefer to play so I have a supply that should last several years.

 

If I lose 2 balls a round it is a lot.  I usually abandon a ball because it is marked up first.

I try to have one sleeve of brand new balls ready to go. Other than that I have tons of used balls or ones that I picked up in the woods or around the courses. So besides a sleeve of four new balls, I probably have 20 used ones ready to go.

Isn't a sleeve 3 balls?

Damn you're right. For some reason I thought my Wilson Staff balls came in sleeves of four. But yeah so I have one sleeve of new balls in my bag at all times.

10 to 12 at a time in my bag. Tons at home ready for play and to shag around in the woods behind my house!

post #33 of 46
I found out today that I had a grand total of sixty-two balls in my bag. I usually carry a couple sleeves of new ones plus about a dozen scuffed etc for use as loaners or for crazy shots. I pick up one or two on the course over a round, but I forgot to empty them out and made that discovery yesterday when my ball pocket wouldn't zip shut.

I carry a dozen new at any time.  If my game goes to junk, I tend to pull out whatever balls are in my pouch.  I need to carry less as an incentive to play better as mentioned above but I always worry I will not have enough to finish a round

I usually carry a sleeve and an odd ball or two, depending on where I am playing. My usual course is not too much of a ball trap, although I usually find a few. I recently played about 36 holes or so with the same ball. If I am playing an unfamiliar course or one where I have a history of lost balls, I will usually load up 2 sleeves plus the odd one or two from the last sleeve.

I buy a dozen, then supplement those with ones I find on the course while I play. One benefit to playing by myself is I almost always have time to stroll about. I typically find 12+ extra of various types. I'll typically save up the good ones for when I am playing well and use the crap ones when I'm not. I've only bought 3 dozen balls so far this season, which is pretty good for me.
