- when i was playing laguna a long time ago, my friend and me all lost more than a dozen balls each by 12 hole. we decided any hole got water we just skip. ahhhhhhh, the fond memories ...... We still have a good laugh about it now.
Ah bro..laguna laguna...masters course.
Elsewhere i'd lose 1 or 2 balls usually.
But at masters, gteed i'd lose at least 6 balls. Max was 8.
The force is strong there.
Ya... That place is deceptively balls guzzler... We should play there again soon...

There was no bait involve. The dude asked my average score and then said he would quit and throw away all of his club if he were to play like me.
Does that constitute me as a buaya? I think it's mere luck and element in line. But I will leave it to your own judgement.
No I won't judge you. But you have to give me 5-5 adjustable.

Loosing balls all depends on whether you are challenging the hazzards (like water) or not. Of course some holes no choice lah, like island green. So if you take on the challenge instead of laying up that playing for bogey, walking off with your ball in hand (hahha), then you end up loosing more balls lah. For me, some weeks gain balls (found some in hazzards) but usually loose around average 1 ball every 2 rounds.

when i started playing golf a few years back, i usually lose about 15 balls each game and throughout the years, the number of balls that i lose reduces to about 3 per game.
i used to buy a lot of 2nd hand balls to keep as i always run out of balls. but now i can't even finished the balls which i have gotten 2 years ago....

Once I played a tough course and lost I think 3 sleeves of brand new Pro V1.
Then I smartened up and started carrying some cheaper balls like Titleist DT Tour and I choose the balls according to how I play.
If I'm playing well, the ProV1 comes out of the bag. If I start to lose them, the cheaper balls come out.
Then I discovered a universal law.
The duration the ball will keep up with you is directly proportional to how old and cheap it is.
So an old cheap scratched up ball will cheerfully stick around hole after hole, refusing to get lost.
A shiny new ProV1 I just took out of the bag will be lost in an instant.
I have developed very good ball-finding skills due to my constant practice. So if I lose a ball in the rough, after searching I sometimes come back with a few other balls. Once I played a round where my ball lost count was negative; I ended with more balls than I started with.
Which reminds me of another universal law, the balls you find are never as expensive as the one you just lost.
