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.

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.

    • Sounds like a good time. And y'all should have better weather this year.
    • I would assume McIlroy is in pretty good shape so resting HR would be something in the 60s. He's just on the tee about to hit and it's almost double that.  
    • @billchao, @nevets88, @jamo and I try to get together for a round every year. We generally try to meet in the middle. We are looking to see if other New England, NY and NJ members are interested to get an idea of numbers and location. No date has been set. Bill and I are going to Erie June 12 to 17, so that week is out.  There is also the meet up in Wisconsin in July that Bill is going to. It would be a weekend day.  Let us know if any of you would be interested and I can map out a place and a potential date. 
    • Why? And couldn't a person grip the club in an Arm Lock style such that they keep their hand against their forearm, so the putter is only contacting their hands?
    • The arm lock putters seem to have a lot more loft and offset than regular putters. How about putting limits on those things? Or, how about just making a rule that says the only points of contact for any club is the hands.
