Tournament Format - Two Low Ball Shamble

This year’s tournament will be a four-man scramble. In this format, each team’s players hit from the teebox, then the team members choose the best of the four shots for the next shot. All team members then play the second shot from that location, and again choose the best shot. Play continues in this manner until the hole is completed.
