Our increasingly-popular contest, allowing you to help us write Golf World's weekly "Front 9" magazine feature, is back. Your name could appear in the game's No. 1 newsweekly.
Inspired by The New Yorker's cartoon-caption writing contest, Golf World is featuring the "Front 9 Punchline Contest" in every issue. Here's how it works: Every Sunday morning, Golf World's editors will post a Front 9 setup line to our magazine's Facebook page. We'll give you until 3 p.m. on Monday to enter your best punchline to that setup.
(An example from a recent Front 9: *Luke Donald wins the Transitions Championship in sudden death, and retakes golf's No. 1 ranking from Rory McIlroy.") *
- Next step: Getting these guys to do their battle in the same tournament, instead of a computer program.*)
Golf World editors will then select the winning entry, which will appear (along with the writer's name and hometown) in that week's issue of Golf World. In addition to having their entry published in the magazine, winners will receive an official Golf World logo hat.
Hey, even if you don't have the best one, your creativity won't go unnoticed. We'll give you a shout out on our Editors' Blog: We've gotten too many quality responses to not acknowledge some of the best.
Our last winner was Chris Hamman of Wichita, Kan., whose winning entry appeared in the April 2 issue of the magazine:
The set-up line: TaylorMade CEO Mark King appears on TV's Undercover Boss." Read More http://www.golfdigest.com/magazine/blogs/golf-editors/2012/03/these-guys-are-good-golf-world.html#ixzz1qcIQMMiX .
The winning punchline: "And until his win at Bay Hill, Tiger Woods played the role of Undercover Golfer for 924 straight days."
