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 a set-up line on our Golf World Facebook page; readers contribute the punchline, which we publish.
It's always a debate as to which creative entry we'll choose. But we've narrowed our list of finalists down to the five most witty entries from this week!
This was the set-up line we supplied:"Angel Cabrera hits three balls into the water on Sawgrass' 17th hole Thursday (he made a 9), then withdraws from The Players."
The winning punchline, supplied by Richard Alan Shirley, Anderson, S.C.., appears in this week's (May 21) issue:
"I miss, I miss, I miss. I leave!"
Other punchline finalists:
"Argentinians do have a track record of failing to hold islands."
Brent Lee, Tsawwassen, BC, Canada:
"Sergio may be known as El Nino, but we now have an El Nine-o."
M.T. Diehl, Orange City, Iowa:
"Overheard later, 'I drowned so many balls, I felt an immediate urge to drown my sorrows.' "
Wally Lukowski, South Lyon, Mich.
"Then he spent the rest of his weekend fishing with the proper equipment."
Check back for our next contest on our Golf World Facebook wall on Sunday for your next shot at getting published!
