Scotch doubles

Posted by Big Dave Knight on June 03, 2007

"Scotch doubles" - In pool/billiard terms this means a doubles match in which team mates "share" an inning by playing alternate shots... But what is the origin of the phrase?

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide with this conundrum... This is a question that appears on pool web sites like mine almost every year!
