6 or 9 at a time. I've never needed more than 4, but better to be safe than sorry. 24 is extreme WS. Surely you aren't that bad :-)

Just two, but occasionally I put a golf ball in my pocket if I'm leaving my bag a distance from the tee. There's always the possibility that a provisional might be required.

About 2% as many as Frank. We thought his wallet was big, it's got nothing on the fullness of his golf bag's ball compartment. (please note restraint and careful use of language)

About 15-20, always carry a spare ball in my pocket but usually do not lose them, I seem to keep down the middle most of the time. Always lose one if I don't carry a spare.

When I first saw this topic, I thought Kiwi must have started it. (After he saw my contents last Friday) I tend to use my bag as a 'storage' and throw any ball I get from comp etc into the ball compartment. I don't lose too many so they tend to mount up over time. After a few rounds they end up in another part of the bag.....where I use these in the practice netts. I decided to clean out the 'oldies' the other day and they are destined to the local range. I have moved some of the 'distance' balls into this other part of the bag........... but all up.... it would have to be quite a few dozen. Anyone from Vic that would like to hazard a guess this week..........all will be revealed on Sunday at Curlewis. The winner gets a couple of free balls. :-)

Probably about a dozen or two, somewhere around there. Like others, I use a couple to warm up with in the nets ............ then as I play or practice most days, and play a couple of balls at a time during practice ........ I tend to go through them fairly quickly. So I probably go thru half a dozen balls or so, each week. For a comp round I'll throw in a sleeve of new balls, so they do tend to accumulate. I try to clean the bag out every couple of weeks and some of the more worn balls get relegated to my big box of "chipping balls" in the garage at home ....... while a few of the less worn balls become my warm up balls. So it's an ongoing rotation of balls thru my golf bag. As for Frank's ball count ........ put me down for 67 please.
