FORMAT: "Step-Back Scramble"
A basic scramble works this way: Each player in the group tees off. The best of the four shots is selected, all players move their balls to that spot and play their second shots. The best of the second shots is selected, all players move their balls to that spot and play their third shots; and so on until the ball is holed.
In a "Step-Back Scramble", the twist is that the player whose shot is selected doesn't get to play the next shot. So, all four players tee off, the best shot is selected, then only three players hit their second shots. The best of the second shots is selected - and the player who hit it sits out the third shots; and so on until the ball is holed.
Let's call our team members Players A, B, C and D. After all four hit drives:
Player B's drive is chosen as the best. A, C and D pick up their golf balls and move them to the location of Player B's drive.
A, C and D then play their second shots. Player B does not, because it was his drive that was used.
The outcome of the second shots is compared, and Player D's is chosen as best. Players A and C move their balls to the spot of D's, and Player B drops a ball there. A, B and C play their third shots; Player D does not because it was his second shot that was used.
Play continues in this fashion until the hole is complete. All four tee off on the next hole.
