Our Front 9 Punchline Contest allows our Golf World fans' to help us write our magazine. Every Sunday, we invite readers to contribute a snappy comment for one item in the Front 9 feature each week. GW feeds the straight line on our Golf World Facebook page; readers contribute the punchline, which we publish.
We narrowed our list down to three worthy candidates this week.
This was the set-up line we supplied:"British bidder buys famous golf painting for $526,110 at an auction in London."
The winning punchline, supplied by Betsy Lindsay of North Hills, Calif., appears in this week's U.S. Open preview issue (June 11):
"Probably with the intent of photoshopping Sir Nick Faldo into the image."
Other punchline finalists:
Thomas B. Allen, Middletown, Ohio:
"He had just lost the bidding war for the original 'Four Dogs Playing Poker' painting, and was not going to be defeated this time."
Mark Harman, Ridgefield, S.C.:
"Another Euro later bid six figures to have a painting of Justin Leonard's historic 1999 Ryder Cup putt destroyed."
Check back for our next contest on our Golf World Facebook wall on Sunday for your next shot at getting published!
