The OP never qualified whether he plays a 'tough' course or not. Just that he loses 5-6 balls a round. Even on the toughest courses I've ever played- Royal County Down, Pebble Beach and a few others I didn't need spectators to find my ball and didn't lose 6 balls. My point was to take a few lessons to LESSEN the chance of losing the ball. Cut down on those really bad flailing slices or hooks, so that maybe the ball rolls into some heavier rough 200 yards out instead of flying in 40 ft in the air at 100mph only 50 yds off the tee. If they're losing the balls carrying water, then maybe a different club or style of course management would be better. OP didn't say that either, so we're all guessing on what the issue is. Either way- developing a swing that doesn't result in reaching into the ball pocket for another will certainly make the game more enjoyable.
