Get published in Golf World: The Front 9 Punchline Contest

Are you a fan of Golf World's weekly "Front 9" magazine feature? If so, we're offering you a chance to co-author it.

Inspired by The New Yorker's cartoon-caption writing contest, Golf World is featuring the "Front 9 Punchline Contest" in each issue. Here's how it works: Every Sunday around noon, Golf World's editors will post a Front 9 setup line to our magazine's Facebook page. We'll give you until 3 p.m. on Monday to enter your best punchline to that setup.

(An example from a recent Front 9: LPGA releases 2012 schedule; number of events increases from 23 to 27.

It's only January, but is it too soon to pay commissioner Mike Whan his bonus?)

Golf World editors will then select the winning entry, which will appear (along with the writer's name and hometown) in that week's issue of Golf World. In addition to having their entry published in the magazine, winners will receive an official Golf World logo hat.

Our last winner was John Fox of Wyoming, Ohio, whose winning entry appeared in the Jan. 30 issue of the magazine:

The set-up line: Donald Trump threatens to shut down Scottish golf project because of nearby wind farms.

The winning punchline: "Giving new meaning to the term, 'Earth, Wind and Fired.' "
