Inspired by The New Yorker's cartoon-caption writing contest, Golf World is starting the "Front 9 Punchline Contest." Here's how it will work.

Every Sunday afternoon, Golf World's editors will post a Front 9 setup line on the magazine's Facebook wall. Readers will have approximately 24 hours to enter their best punchlines to that set up. (An example from a recent Front 9: Rory McIlroy finishes T-3 in Switzerland and pronounces injured right wrist fully healed. He took all the precautions. For instance, he used only his left hand when applauding for Caroline Wozniacki.)

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.
