tips for wining your next golf scramble

Well hello there golf scramble enthusiast!  You are here because you want the best golf scramble strategy and tips, and I hope to not disappoint!

Scrambles are fun.  In most cases, they are formed for a good cause, but sometimes they are formed merely as an excuse to get hammered with your golf buddies.  In any case, winning is the name of them game, and doing so in an honorable manner is the most satisfying accomplishment there is.

How to Win Your Next Golf Scramble

I know it sounds easy, but the best golf scramble tips I can give you are so simple.  For starters, you NEED to have a money putter on your team.  You’ve  heard it before and you will hear it again, driving is for show and putting is for dough.  To give you a better chance of winning your next golf scramble, get an ace putter on the team.  If he or she hits a 9 degree driver 185 who gives a shit, put them on your lineup because putting is where its at.

Another solid golf scramble strategy is to put good short game players on your roster over big hitters.  It’s great to have a guy that can rip the ball 330 off the tee, but it is accurate?  If not, you are better off with 280 and striped down the middle of the fairway.  From there, you rely on the guys on your team that have great iron and short games to get you in for bird.

Another factor you want to consider is order.  I see it all of the time, and I have no idea why, but some teams just do not care about the order they hit in.  For putting, this is even more important, as you want your ace putter going last so he/she can get all of the information and reads from the previous putters.  When it comes to tee shots, I personally think its your best bet to have your most accurate driver go first.  Once the fairways is hit, the others have the green light to let it rip.  There really is no right or wrong answer to this part of it, but at least think about it and try to come up with the most sensible plan.  Remember, failing to plan is planning to fail!

Sneaky (But Legal) Golf Scramble Tip

This one is something most other teams are not going to consider doing, but might be worth looking into.  In a golf scramble, it is not required that you play the same ball throughout an entire hole.  Therefore, why not use that pure distance ball off the tee, and switch up to a Pro V1 after?  Heck, the goal is to get the lowest scores, and if doing this can even help you go a little lower, it could be the difference between 1st and 2nd!

My last golf scramble strategy is very simple, and that is HAVE FUN!  Scrambles are hard to win, and in a lot of cases there will be some suspect scorecards turned in.  Don’t let that deter you from having a great time, because a bad day golfing trumps a good day at the office!  In the end, you are out there to have fun with your team, and network with others, which should be your top priority.
