Good Monday morning, everyone! It looks like David and Jeff wanted to gently ease us into another week of puzzle solving. Today’s game was on par with what we’ve come to expect for a Monday, so I’ll keep my post to a minimum and patiently wait for the challenges that’ll undoubtedly arrive as the week progresses.
All of our clue words were old friends from the past couple of years. PURSUE, last seen on 6/3/19, was the only one to cause me a few seconds of delay. It looked like USURP at first, but it in the end it solved just as easily as the others. Both of the 5-letter anagrams have been used in the past, while both of the 6-letter ones are coming up as new.
Today’s cartoon has us heading out to the fairways, and it’s there that we see a couple of Jumble characters sizing up a particularly challenging hole. The sentence informs us that the distance from the tee is a whopping 600 yards, and the par 5 indicates that it is expected to take 5 strokes to complete.
Both of our golfers know the general area where the hole is, but they just can’t quite seem to find the green. 600 yards converts to .34 miles so you can easily understand their conundrum. The gentleman on the right can be seen making a finger frame with his hands while his buddy shades his eyes as he looks off into the distance.
The final solve was anagram consisting of 5-letters. There’s no way that David could hide the 2-word solution in such a small amount of letters so it ended up being an instant solve. Easy peasy lemon squeezy! Have a great start to your week, and I’ll see you right back here tomorrow.
