Thanks for that, appreciate it. I agree texas scramble is a fun format but with feuding members taking the format too seriously sometimes unfortuately we as a committee need to make a decision when common sense should have prevailed, and this site looked like a good place to throw the problem out to other golfers.
In a game of Texas Scramble Player A addresses the ball and has a fresh air. Before Player B in the team has a chance to take his shot Player A in a fit of temper swings his club at the ball and hits the ball into the rough. What happens next according to the rules.
