At Golf World, we love having our fans help us write our magazine. That's why we've enjoyed seeing our Front 9 Punchline Contest grow over the last 10 months.
If you're new to the game, the Punchline Contest gives our fans a voice in every section of the Front 9, in the front of the book of 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 (and send them a sleeve of golf balls, too!).
We narrowed our list down to four worthy candidates this week.
This was the set-up line we supplied:"Phil Mickelson drops his marker on his ball and incurs a penalty en route to missing the cut at the Greenbrier Classic"
The winning punchline, supplied by Nathan Wilson of Punta Gorda, Fla., appears in this week's Open Championship preview issue (July 16):
"Just another reason why the Rules of Golf need to be revamped."
