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:"The Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J. will host the 2017 U.S. Women's Open, the USGA announced."
The winning punchline, supplied by Gary Cushion of Overland Park, Kan., appears in this week's (May 14) issue:
"What's the over and under that Trump will be on TV more than the tournament leaders?"
Other punchline finalists:
Chris Sowers, Indianapolis:
"It's rumored that Trumps old wigs, will serve as the second cut of rough."
Dywan Washington, Tampa:
"Trump also demanded that the golfer's birth certificate's be shown to prove they are eligible to play"
Goofie Golfer, Phoenix:
"That's not how you cut the greens...get me my barber he knows how to cut them right..."
Marion Sherman Howard, Westport, Conn.:
"The USGA acceded to Trump's three conditions for the event. 1) The extra-long rough will be groomed "comb over style", 2) Players who M/C will be listed on the board as "fired", and 3) The trophy will be cast in solid gold and shall be referred to as "The Donald."
