Front 9 Contest: Get published in our next issue

December 09, 2011

Are you a fan of Golf World's weekly "Front 9" magazine feature? If so, you have a chance to help write it.

Inspired by The New Yorker's cartoon-caption writing contest, Golf World is now featuring the "Front 9 Punchline Contest" every week. Here's how it works. Every Sunday afternoon, Golf World's editors will post a Front 9 setup line to our magazine's Facebook page. Readers will have approximately 24 hours to enter their best punchlines to that set up.

(An example from a recent Front 9: Yani Tseng wins in China for her 11th title of 2011. Come to think of it, if the LPGA played a 1995 schedule, Tseng could match Nelson's streak.)

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.

Our last winner was Daniel Fargo of Medina, Ohio, whose winning entry appeared in the Nov. 28 issue of the magazine:

Set-up line: The U.S. wins the Presidents Cup, 19-15, with Tiger Woods scoring the clinching point.

The winning punchline: "Looks like there's some progress in Tiger's Process Down Under."
