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 set-up line on our Golf World Facebook page; readers contribute the punchline, which we publish.Related: Our magazine's Facebook page
But we've narrowed our list of finalists down to the five most witty entries!
This was the set-up line we supplied this week:
"Tiger Woods offers apology to those offended by his meltdowns during the second round of the Masters."
The winning punchline, supplied by Michael Cooney of Seattle, appears in this week's (April 16) issue:
"Officials rescinded any fine when forensic audio analysis determined he was yelling 'Oosthuizen!"
Other punchline finalists:
Brian DiMaio, Jacksonville, Fla., (who almost won twice in three weeks!):
"Even Navy SEALS were blushing at his language."
Mike Fox, Wyoming, Ohio:
"..then gets hired as the new placekicker for the Green Bay Packers."
Pete Desjardins, Boston:
"Right, just like a 10-year-old apologizes, and keeps on doing what he does."
Gary Faulhaber, Erie, Pa.:
"Bubba offers no apology, and no one is offended, after his emotional meltdown after winning the Masters."
