No. The purpose of Scramble Format Golf is to allow the team to work together. The rules are as follows: Each Player on a 4 person team hits their T shot. They select the 'best shot' and then play from that location to the conlusion of the hole. The final score is the team score. So if you hit yours in the woods and another team member is in the fairway, you can play their shot. This alternating format goes on each hole until the round of 18 holes is complete.
