    Alt shot is a nerve wracking experience if you haven’t played it a lot. Nothing like ruining a sweet tee shot with a hosel rocket!

    Scramble is always my favorite. It’s fun to try for a hero shot when one ball is safely in play.

    I love all of the formats. Honestly we all play stroke play enough as it is, i enjoy finding new ways to enjoy competition, especially when it’s team golf.

    You may not always have your best stuff but your partner can pick you up and vice versa. That’s where the true team aspect comes into play and I’m pumped for that dynamic.

    What is the format on the first day of golf that you are looking forward to the most and the least? Assuming it would be scramble, shamble and Alt shot.

    For me it would be scramble the most, just an easy format IMO. The alt shot can be really fun but very tough.
    Someone needs to go back and read a few Grandaddy Live Update threads.

    I don't think me and ChristopherKee left each other a total of ten good shots in our alternate shot match in the 2014 Gauntlet.

    "Boy, Chris, you really pounded that ball. If its long enough it might make it to the next fairway and I'll have a shot."

    "I've got the s**nks, I don't want the tee on any par 3s."

    DMoney79 and I each put tee shots into a hazard and skipped the other completely at the SEC Regional Rivalry. That was the day we conceded albatross on a par 5.

    I really like alternate shot.

    Don't remember Alt shot being a Grandaddy thing as that would sort of suck given the event as a whole! Would miss out on a lot even if it was for 9 holes.

    I was using an assumption, I will go back and look at past formats.
    Driver Maybe something Flash?
    Fairways Some more awesome Flash?
    Irons I have no idea what might go in here!!!
    Wedges probably some MD goodness
    probably something that rolls awesome
    an awesone ball
