Texas Scramble is a competition format that is a basic scramble
with a slight twist.
Scrambles involve 4-person teams playing four balls, but with
each shot coming from the same spot (the best of the four drives is chosen and
all four 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: 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.
