Enough other golfers showed up to fill up all of the other foursomes, except for us. Rookery golf pro Kyle Deas had a simple solution for how Conlon and I were supposed to compete in a scramble tourna- ment against a bunch of four- somes: "Just hit two balls each for each stroke, and pick the best one," he smiled. In essence, Conlon and I played mulligan golf for 18 holes, which was a lot of fun. On a few holes, our eventual picks for each stroke came from only one of us, but for 13 holes there was a mix like any other scramble we've ever played. The tournament scoring was gross only, so we didn't have any issues with how to handi- cap ourselves for a net version. The USGA suggests an A, B, C, D split of weighted handicaps for scramble foursomes, using 20 percent of the A player's handicap, 15 percent of the B, 10 percent of the C, and 5 percent of the D player's course handi- cap. For a two-person scramble, it suggests a 35/15 split. For Conlon and me, net scor- ing would have brought us well below par, but still well within the "participating" range our combined score earned us in the gross score category. We had fun anyway.
