Help the Golf World editors write this week's Front 9 feature

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. (And, you'll win a sleeve of golf balls printed with the Golf World logo!)

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: *The House of Representatives votes to award Jack Nicklaus the Congressional Gold Medal.) *

Punchline: * Better than the silver medal he got from the Olympics Golf Course Selection Committee.*)

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.

Plus, even if you don't have the best one, your creativity won't go unnoticed. We'll give you a shout out on our new #Reaction blog. With the increased popularity of the contest, we've been getting too many quality responses to not acknowledge some of the best.

Our last winner was Thomas B. Allen of Middletown, Ohio, whose winning entry appeared in the April 30 issue of the magazine:

The set-up line: Time magazine names Yani Tseng one of "The 100 Most Influential People in the World."

The winning punchline: "Non-golfers said 'Huh?', but he did not make the list this year."

*Check our Facebook page on Sunday for your chance to appear in our next issue!
