Scramble ball selection
Playing in a scramble today and wanted to get some opinions.


Anybody try to use a distance rock off the tee to drive with instead of their normal gamer, and then switch for the rest of the hole.

That ain't cheating in a scramble, but I know lots of people that do that shite for every round.

Any other scramble tactics you guys like? Normally hit shots in order of worst to best player?

re: Scramble ball selection
I am a fast pace player so I go first.

I am a good putter so I go third.

re: Scramble ball selection
Only way I know how to do well in a scramble is to cheat. Esp if it's a church or charity type one.

I'm too honest so never do well in these events.

re: Scramble ball selection
I won first place last year and won a round of golf so it's not worth cheating for.


The door prizes are usually better, which is probably the best way to do it.

re: Scramble ball selection
I like the “Mr. Honest” prize for lastplace. Always seemed fun to me.

Knowing up front the improbability of winning scrambles without cheating, I always just focus on the side games like long drive, closest to the pin, straightest drive, find the sluttiest cart girl,...

re: Scramble ball selection
Best way to win is to find a company to sponsor your team.

Buy a couple mulligans.

I feel like everyone should hit in the same order every time. One of the reasons why (I feel) good teams don't win is because of a lack of rhythm. Going in the same order every shot lets the team get into a rhythm.

This. Low spin = distance.

I like shortest - longest driver order on the tee box and highest handi to lowest handi on irons and putts. Bitches know they can cheat though. Last scramble I played the greens were rolling about 5-6 on the Stimp meter if I had to guess. Really long greens that they were trying to grow in before cutting them. Winning team turns in -16. You have to be throwing serious darts all day long to near gimme range to have makable putts to sink that many birdies. I call bull shite.

re: Scramble ball selection
Played charity scramble at TPC on Tuesday. They had a world longest drive tour guy raising money and hitting drives for teams on Par 5 11th.

Ball he hit for our team went 383 right down middle in about 15 mph side wind. It was pretty cool to see in person.

re: Scramble ball selection
Cooked then played in Bobby Hebert's Cystic Fibrosis tournament a couple years back and they had an LDA guy there...I think on hole 6. He went 411yds down the middle. We had 90yds out on a par 5

We only birdied it. Too many white cans....


This is him

How true it this post. Last scramble I played in, we made our own team, so ineligible to win. 4 younger guys late 20s early 30s, all of us capable of contributing.

We weren't within 10 strokes of the winner. There is no way they could have beaten u head to head, yet somehow they birdied every hole
