scramble
 v.— «“It’s been a long week,” Delio said. “I played well. When my approach shots weren’t hit that well, I saved myself by scrambling. If I teed a green, I was pretty solid all week.” Scrambling in golf is a term for missing the green off the tee, then hitting out of the rough and back down into the hole.» —“Delio delivers with gold medal” by Bruce Bourquin The Signal (Santa Clarita, California) June 22, 2008.
