These Golf World "Punchline" guys are good! Here are this week's finalists and winner.
As you know, Golf World invites readers to contribute a snappy comment for one item in the Front 9 list each week. GW feeds the straight line; readers contribute the punchline, which we publish. We've been getting so many good ones lately, we think the winner and the close contenders deserve a little more love. Henceforth, the Editors' Blog will publish those each week.
For this week's issue:
Golf World editors supplied this news item:
Thanks to the raucous 16th hole, the Waste Management Open breaks the PGA Tour attendance record.
And the readers took off on it. Golf World's Stephen Hennessey then selected the finalists and Editor Geoff Russell confirmed Steve's proposed winner.
He was Mike Coulson, Ventura, CA:

Mark Harman, Ridgeland, SC:

Christopher Benner, Murfreesboro, TN:

MT Diehl, Orange City, IA:
In related news, the PGA Tour changes its slogan to, "These guys are loud."

Love 'em all. Great job, guys.
