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 morning, 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.Related: Golf World's Facebook page: Perfect for the golf fan
(An example from a recent Front 9: Louis Oosthuizen makes the fourth double eagle in Masters history.")
Punchline: He should have kept the ball, seeing how he missed the green jacket.)
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 some Golf World gear, too!
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.We picked our top five finalists from last week: Editors' Blog
Our last winner was Michael Cooney of Seattle, whose winning entry appeared in the April 16 issue of the magazine:
The set-up line: Tiger Woods apologizes to those offended by his meltdowns during the Masters."
The winning punchline: "Officials rescinded any fine when forensic audio analysis determined he was yelling 'Oosthuizen!' "Head to our Facebook page on Sunday for your chance to appear in our next issue!
