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. (And, you'll win a sleeve of golf balls printed with the Golf World logo!)
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 any golf fan
(An example from our last Front 9: Poker-faced Jason Dufner wins for the second time in a month at the HP Byron Nelson Championship.)
Punchline: The man brings low-key to new depths.)
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.
Plus, even if you don't have the best one, your creativity won't go unnoticed. We'll give you a shout out on our new #Reaction blog. With the increased popularity of the contest, we've been getting too many quality responses to not acknowledge some of the best.These guys were good: The finalists from last week
Our last winner was Mark Harman of Ridgefield, S.C., whose winning entry appeared in the May 28 issue of the magazine:
The set-up line: Using borrowed clubs, Brandt Snedeker beats Thomas Bjorn in the first round of the Volvo Match Play."
The winning punchline: "His next opponent went to the airport to make sure his real clubs arrived safely at the course."Check our Facebook page on Sunday for your chance to appear in our next issue!
