Readers: Enter Golf World's "Front 9 Contest"

October 14, 2011

Are you a fan of Golf World's weekly magazine feature, "Front 9"? If so, you'll now 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 the our 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.

The last winner was T. William Anderson, whose winning entry appeared in the Oct. 3 issue of the magazine:

John Daly drowns club, storms off at European Tour event in Austria, his 16th WD in four years.

Daly's golfing life is starting to read like my shampoo bottle: "Lather. Rinse. Repeat."
