Cargo shorts......but don't get people started on that... (i'd also accept 1 or 2 "extra" balls in your pockets if in a mockery mood)
I'll keep it in mind - if anyone starts to 'pat down' the field sometime I'll know why now.
seems to be three camps here:
1 - keep a spare in case you lose your ball and your cart is over on the other side of the fairway - or even 20 feet away is still a delay
2 - keep a spare to slip into the cup when no one is looking
3 - actually #1, but now self conscious about it..... ; )
I'm a 1 (pocket has ball, 5/6 tees, and my divot tool/ball marker - nothing else, absolutely, not even the receipt). But I'm self conscious about pace of play and lost balls. I'm also the guy with 2 dozen balls in the bag but only loses 2 or 3 at most during a round. Sue me.
On topic: how to deal with them?
1 - if they play for money......I don't play with them
2 - if they don't play for money.....encourage them, if it results in ready(er) golf
I'd be more inclined to tell him not to do any more tournaments.
'ask him', but this is a very decent answer that respects everyone involved (including the other players that never found out)
