Cantiague Park Golf League 'Scrambles'
On May 17 the Cantiague Park Senior Men's Golf League held its fifth bi-monthly tournament. This week the group played a tournament with a different format. They played a game called "Scramble." All four golfers tee off; whoever has the best shot leaves his ball there and all four golfers hit their second shot from that spot. Then they do the same with the third shot, etc. until someone puts the ball in the hole. That is the score for the team. There is no score for the individual golfer. The team with the lowest score wins the tournament.
