The Same Exact Time Scramble Format is Awesome


This past weekend, my best buddy in the world got hitched up. On Thursday, like many golfing husbands do, we had a little golf tournament to celebrate the event. Too bad we didn't hear about this new Same Exact Time Scramble format that is all the rage these days, because it looks absolutely incredible.

See, scrambles are fun, don't get me wrong, but if you play in too many they get a little boring. The SET Scramble allows every player to hit the exact shot at the exact same time, meaning that you get to watch four balls fly in the air (or piddle down the fairway) in hopes that yours might be the one they take.

Doug McCracken is the CEO and founder of the SET Scramble. He came up with the format as a way to speed up play, always a problem in scrambles (and any other golf tournament, for that matter), and to eliminate cheating. Having all four players from one team hit at the same time is an obvious time-saver and, better yet, it allows for eightsomes. Your foursome will play with another foursome, which should cut down on rules fudging and keep players honest in skill contests like closest to the pin and long drive.

Another thing I feel it would do is take some of the pressure off the "A" players in a scramble. Too many times you'll be standing over a shot, knowing that if you miss the green your team is screwed. Now, you just get to prepare for a golf shot, hit it, and hope that you've executed the way you always want when playing this silly game.

I have to say, a SET scramble in my near future. With a group of guys out in Scottsdale that tend to want more fun that seriousness when heading out to hit the links, the SET seems like a perfect Saturday morning.
