6-6-6 Format Components
A shamble is a format where the best drive is used by both players on the team, then they both play their own shots from that point forward. Best ball is traditional play by which each team member will play his own ball. The best score from the hole becomes the team's score. The alternate shot format is as the name implies where the players will take turns playing the ball from their partner's last shot. The mix of formats makes the day more fun and allows the golfers of lesser to skill to be competitive.
