At Golf World, we continue to be blown away by the creativity of our
reader submissions in our Front 9 Punchline Contest. Every Sunday, we
invite readers to contribute a snappy comment for one item in the Front
9 feature each week. GW feeds the straight line on our Golf World
Facebook page; readers contribute the punchline, which we publish.
We narrowed our list of finalists down to the five most witty entries!
This was the set-up line we supplied this week:"British Open champion Darren Clarke up for membership at Pine Valley."
The winning punchline, supplied by John Breaker of Golden, Colo., appears in this week's (March 26) issue:
"Oh, sorry! I thought you said Pint Valley."
Other punchline finalists:
Michael Cooney, Seattle, Wash., (who almost won twice in three weeks!):
"Referred to as the "Little Guy" in the two-ball with playing partner Governor Chris Christie."
"According to unnamed insiders, the 2010 British Open champ's
application was denied when it was discovered he listed as references
Adam Chandler, Tad Martin, and Erica Kane."
Benny Min, Walnut Creek, Calif.:
"Why is this man smiling? Pine Valley's 10% discounts on Guinness
for anyone bringing their own claret jug."
Jeff Black, Pickerington, Ohio:
"The club is hoping for a record year in beer sales."
