Visual Description:  The irrational optimist teeing up at the Green Monster.


Clue/Question:  Trying to reach the green with his drive was this.

Answer:  A LONG SHOT

(Maybe.  Just maybe, if you weren’t – somehowable to get some idea of the distance of this hole, then this might not have been one of the more obvious answers in a long, long time.  But, hey!  Dem’s da breaks!  No new clue words today, but they were all jumbled really well.  The answer letter layout was also a great jumble.  The slightly exaggerated cartoon is full of some fun details, like the curled up divot, the binoculars and the silly club covers.  I’ve never played a 595 yard Par 5 before.  I have played a 570 yarder, but from the white tees it’s more like 545.  I’ve caddied a 594 yard Par 5, but I never caddied for anyone who parred the hole.  It’s a beast, and too much for your average duffer.  I haven’t played real golf in nearly 40 years.  Putt-putt with the kids, who are now grown, and a few buckets at a rural driving range, every few years or so.  It’s not a poor man’s game, and there’s a big time commitment to playing golf.  With the right frame of mind it’s an enjoyable activity.  With the wrong frame of mind, like Mark Twain said, it’s: “a good walk spoiled.”  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    UNC- This jumble reminded me of my favorite golf movie CADDYSHACK, which starred many great actors/comedians including my favorite Rodney Dangerfield (RIP). Enjoy Wimpy
