Our Golf World writers might be in trouble. Our Facebook Front 9 Punchline Contest has been a success, for us, and for our fans who have been published in our magazine. Every Sunday, we invite readers to contribute a snappy comment for co-author our 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.
We narrowed our list to four finalists this week who we thought earned a nod!
This was the set-up line we supplied this week:
Time magazine names Yani Tseng one of 'The 100 Most Influential People in the World.'
The winning punchline, supplied by Thomas B. Allen of Middletown, Ohio appears in this week's (April 30) issue of Golf World:
Non-golfers said "Huh?", but he did not make the list this year.
Other punchline finalists:
Andrew Brandl Larsen of Chanhassen, Minn.:
"Bubba originally listed the house for $1.5 million, but dropped the price after a slight diaper-changing mishap."
Joy Niemack, Cape Town, South Africa:
"Move over Tebow, it's Tsenging Time."
A Facebook profile named 'PlayersTowel':
"The most repeated words in golf . . ."Yani Tseng is in the lead." ~ Scottsdale Az
James Melcer, Seattle:
"His real estate agent plans to take his commission in the form of golf lessons."
