Get creative to get published: Front 9 Punchline Contest

Our increasingly-popular contest, allowing you to help us write Golf World's weekly "Front 9" magazine feature, is back. Your name could appear in the game's No. 1 newsweekly.

Inspired by The New Yorker's cartoon-caption writing contest, Golf World is featuring the "Front 9 Punchline Contest" in every 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: Jessica Korda, 18, wins the ISPS Australian Handa Women's Open, the LPGA's season-opening event.")

Korda, Lexi Thompson, Lydia Ko . . . These days the media guide of women's golf looks like a high school yearbook.)

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.

Hey, even if you don't have the best one, your creativity won't go unnoticed. We'll give you a shout out on our Editors' Blog: We've gotten too many quality responses to not acknowledge some of the best.

Our last winner was Kelly J. Hahn of Wilmore, Ky., whose winning entry appeared in the March 19 issue of the magazine:

The set-up line: Rory McIlroy wins a point from tennis player Maria Sharapova during exhibition match in New York.

The winning punchline: "Following the match, McIlroy bowled a 300 and declared for the NFL Draft."
