The Loop

Get published in the next issue of Golf World

February 03, 2012

Are you a fan of Golf World's weekly "Front 9" magazine feature? If so, we're offering you a chance to co-author it.

Inspired by The New Yorker's cartoon-caption writing contest, Golf World is featuring the "Front 9 Punchline Contest" in each issue. Here's how it works: Every Sunday around noon, 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: Dan Forsman wins the Champions Tour's opener, the Mitsubishi Electric Championship.

And then he cried in the post-round interview. It's about time someone started emulating Steve Stricker.)

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 Ruel Gaviola of Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., whose winning entry appeared in the Feb. 6 issue of the magazine:

The set-up line: Bubba Watson buys "General Lee," the car used in "The Dukes of Hazzard" television show.

The winning punchline: *"Thankfully, Bubba refused to bid on a pair of Daisy Dukes." *
