The PGA Tour season is back; so is the Golf World Front 9 Punchline Contest!

January 04, 2013

We hope you're as excited as we are for the 2013 golf season. The PGA Tour kicks off the year with its opening Hyundai Tournament of Champions this week at Kapalua, and we'll be publishing our first issue to start the new year.

That means, too, Golf World's Front 9 Contest is back.

Inspired by The New Yorker's cartoon-caption writing contest, Golf World features the "Front 9 Punchline Contest" every week. Here's how it works: Every Sunday afternoon, Golf World's editors post a Front 9 setup line to our magazine's Facebook wall. We publish the most creative punchline in the magazine, so you'll get ink along with the biggest newsmakers in golf that week!

Our last winner, from our Dec. 10 year-in-review issue, was J. Michael DeAgostino of Traverse City, Mich.

This was the set-up line we supplied on Facebook:

"Renovations begin at St. Andrews' Old Course ahead of the 2015 British Open."

And his winning punchline:

"We hope you like the new escalator in the Road Hole Bunker."
