At Golf World, our Front 9 Punchline Contest submissions continue to crack us up. Every Sunday, we invite readers to contribute a snappy comment for one item in the Front 9 feature each week. GW feeds the straight set-up line on our Golf World Facebook page; readers contribute the punchline, which we publish.Related: Our magazine's Facebook page
We narrowed our list of more than 45 entrants to five finalists who had the most witty punchlines!
This was the set-up line we supplied this week:
"Bubba Watson is selling his North Carolina lake house for $1.499 million."
The winning punchline, supplied by Kevin Allen of Whiteford, Md., appears in this week's (April 23) issue:
"You should see his new house. It'll make you green with envy."
Other punchline finalists:
John Drummond, New York, N.Y.:
"Bubba originally listed the house for $1.5 million, but dropped the price after a slight diaper-changing mishap."
Justin Kannard, St. Louis:
"Reports are he needed the extra cash for a custom car seat for the little guy to ride shotgun in the General."
Todd Anderson, Browns Mills, N.J. (The second-ever winner of our contest.):
"A portion of the profits from the sale will be given to Louis Oosthuizen to use for high-five lessons, or to fill the gap in his teeth."
James Melcer, Seattle:
"His real estate agent plans to take his commission in the form of golf lessons."
