Our Front 9 Contest is back!
After a break in publishing post-Ryder Cup, with a week delay due to Superstorm Sandy, our Front 9 Punchline Contest, which allows our fans to helps us write our magazine, continued to be a success this week.
Every Sunday, we've invited readers to contribute a snappy comment for one item in our Front 9 news feature. Our editors feed the straight line on our Golf World Facebook page; readers contribute the punchline, which we publish.
The competition has grown over the last year and a half, and it was no different this week.
This was the set-up line we supplied on Facebook:
"Tianlang Guan gets a Masters spot by winning the Asia-Pacific Amateur."
The winning punchline, supplied by Will Knights of New Lenox, Ill., appears in this week's (November 5th) issue:
"But we're still unsure if his parents have signed the permission slip."
ther punchline finalists:
Chris Hamman, Wichita, Kan.:
"That new addition to the clubhouse must be to provide day-care services."
Kenny Peacock, Minneola, Fla.:
"He can practice driving for his learners permit on Magnolia Lane."
Thomas B. Allen, Middletown, Ohio:
"He's so young he makes Beau Hossler look like old Tom Morris."
Erik Thulien, Appleton, Wisc.:
"His parents are still unsure if he can play, they dont know if his babysitter can afford to miss that much school."
