2-man Alternate Shot

True Scotch today, gentlemen.  

That means nothing under your kilts!

Decide before you start your round, which partner will tee off on the odd holes, and which partner will tee off on the even holes.  Just one ball, player A tees off, player B hits the second shot, player A hits the third, and so on until you have holed out.

Don't forget to bring your team bottle, because its "make a double, drink a double" rules today.

This round will NOT be posted.

1 mulligan per hole (which CANNOT be taken on the green)

If you choose to take a Mulligan, you MUST continue playing the result of that Mulligan. YOU MAY NOT GO BACK TO USE THE FIRST SHOT YOU WERE REPLACING. CHOOSE WISELY. Finish out the hole with the result of the Mulligan.

Remember, the Mulligan cannot be on a putt from on the green.

You may be challenged to keep up with the group in front of you, but I know you have it in you. Or else!
