How many balls do you bring for a round?

Ok, random question.  How many balls do you usually bring in your golf bag for a round?  I usually take at least 2 dozen premium balls, and a couple beat up balls to hit over the hazards.  I rarely lose more than 4-5 balls per round, but I think not having to worry about running out helps me lay much better.

No more than a few sleeves.  Do not want all of the added weight while walking and would never use a different ball for a hazard.


My thoughts exactly!

2 sleves of new X's and some used for side bets....

Last two rounds I've only used one ball. Or to put it this way, one ball per 18 holes of golf...

I always bring a new sleeve with me for each round.  I typically do not lose balls, but will change out for a new one after nine, or after a couple of bogies in a row.  I keep a fair amount of balls in my bag, but will empty them into my shag bag every month as the bag starts to get too heavy.

It is funny that you bring this up as I had my shag bag on the hill a few weeks ago.  Weather in NE finally broke 40.  The guy next to me asked what I was hitting.  I told him Titleist ProV1's.  He came over and looked closer at the balls and said my shag bag balls were in better shape than the balls he puts in play.  I told him that the ProV1's will outlast and perform much better than the ball he was playing...non-Titliest.

Spreading the word of Performance when I can.  Can not say enough good words about Titleist and their entire line-up including Foot Joy.

true, the people who carry at least 3 dozen balls per round don't walk for sure.

On my home course, I have 6 or 8 balls. When I play a new course I have about 12 - 18 balls. I read here, a lot of guys use old balls over a hazard. You should never have negative thoughts, like loosing a ball, in your head, while playing golf.

I put a dozen in my bag at the start of the year. Once I get down to three I refill. 


Two sleeves of Pro V1x's......and if I happen to find balls on the course, I use those to practice with.

Two sleeves ProV1X.


I carry a dozen Pro V1X's to play with and 6 Titleist Velocitys when I'm not having a good day, I will switch to them. It's a very good ball also.

Depends how many balls are already in my bag!  I usually try to keep a couple sleeves of new balls in my bag but I hit older balls first.  If I don't lose a golf ball in 9 or so holes I usually chuck it anyway.  I love ProV1's but the covers on them just don't hold up for 18 holes to my liking.  Nonetheless, I don't have any intentions of changing ball any time soon, they're just so darn good...

New course, practice round 1 sleeve brand new, 1 sleeve previously played but still in good shape.  And whatever my playing group plays, they often flip me the odd Pro V's they find during the round.  Home course, rotate a sleeve every 3 holes  = 1 ball 6 holes; unless......  Just call me Mr. Titleist.

I just stock up my bag an when I have like 3 balls left in my bag I re-stock

I bring nine new or like new. I try not to hit a ball more than one full round. I'll keep playing that ball if I'm hot, but once it gets scuffed it's out.
