What is Team Texas Scramble? Texas Scramble is a form of team competition in golf. All members of the team – teams are normally of 3 or 4 players – tee off. Then one of these drives is chosen to be used for the next shot and all members of the team place their balls were the chosen drive ended up, and all the team play the second shot from this spot.
From these second shots, one is chosen and all play a third shot from there – and so on until the ball is holed. Each team returns one score for each hole and the team with the lowest score for the round wins.
One of the attractions of Texas Scramble is that poor golfers can join in with little fear of embarrassment or of being a burden to other players, If a golfer’s drives whimper off deep into a nearby undergrowth no worries – just choose one of the other two or three drives.
