Twenty four vets’ teams of three contested a Texas Scramble at East Devon, writes Paul Willoughby.

For those who don’t know, the rules of a Texas Scramble require all players to drive then they choose the best position from the drives from which to take the second shot.

They make the same choice of best position after the third shot and so on, which should result in the players hitting from the optimum position each time resulting in low scores. That’s the theory anyway!

So, no pressure; you can always rely on a team member to get on the green or sink that putt but the pressure mounts when they don’t and all of a sudden you are faced with making a three foot left to right putt to score the points.

The teams that proved the theory were; 1, Godfrey Kent, Ron Jefford and John Lee with 44 points; 2, Bob Harriott, George Rogers and Leonard Fry (43); 3, John Maidment, David Bowyer and John Jago, (43); 4, Martin Bright, Ian Sampson and Roger Maunder, (43); 5, Bill Cole, Geoff Whiteley and Bob Loman, (43); 6, Jack Jones, John Cowing and Joe O’Boyle, also with 43

There was a two’s pot of £72 to be shared between six teams with the team of Kent, Jefford and Lee and the team of Lewis Maby, Ron Jefford and John Lee claiming two of them at the fourth and 10th.
