Texas Scramble at Tilgate!
Texas Scrambles involve 4 or 3 person teams playing their balls, but with each shot coming from the same spot (the best of the three or four drives is chosen and all team members then hit from that spot, and so on).
The variation in a Texas Scramble is that at least four drives of each member of the team must be used during the course of the round or five balls if it is a three player team. At least four drives hit by Player A, four by Player B, and so on. In a regular scramble, a great driver might have his tee ball used on every hole. A Texas Scramble eliminates that possibility and allows even the weakest driver on the team to get into the action.
Why the word Texas is used nobody knows.... or maybe you do?
On 22 November the Tilgate Texas Sramble was won by Alex Milne, Bryan Foster and Gordon Kennedy. In second place was Alan Smith, Roger Pearce, Joe Burgin and Fred Green. Third place went to John Rae, Mark Hart, Bill Power and Ken Pattenden.
