I'll take that team of a 1, 14, 15, 16 over a team of 2, 10, 10, and 26 anytime with those rules. Being forced to use 2 drives and 2 second shots per side with a 26'er is going to be crippling. The 10's aren't that much better than the 14-16 guys but 14-16 is a world of difference from a 26.Also, how in the world did your team shoot a 70? The 1 handicap should be right around there by himself. Clearly your team made absolutely no putts and everyone including the 1 played awful. That is simply a mind bogglingly bad round. The expected score for your team with those players should have been around 58-63 for a net of 50-55.The other team played pretty good but hardly exceptional. Clearly the 26'er had some nice shots for them to to shoot a 60.I used to play several scrambles a year back when I was a solid 2. At the company tournament every year there would be arguments over who got me so I'd just play with a different trio in my department each year. I think the worst my team ever shot was a 64 and the best was a 60. It was generally me and three guys in the mid to high 20's handicaps. Rarely was I playing with someone who could break 100 honestly on an average course.I've played scrambles with 3 75+ year old men none of which could drive it more than 175 yards who are all 30+ handicaps and shot in the mid 60's. One good player in the 1-3 handicap range should basically guarantee no worse than par on any hole with a reasonable or better birdie chance on most holes.That is just unfathomable how your team shot a 70. Take out the 1 handicap entirely and a 3 man scramble team of a 14, 15, and 16 should still break par by a bit.I can't imagine how frustrating that round must have been.
