Answer:  TWOSOME

(Funky pun . . . even if it’s NOT the way David L. Hoyt wanted it to come out . . . which was actually “TWO-SUM”.  I haven’t golfed since I was a kid, but I guess in golf . . . four and four equal two?  I knew something was up with the answer, then I saw that David sent a preemptive comment, explaining that some editors changed it on them.  These things happen, from time to time.  Anyway, there were no new clue words, but all of the jumbles are coming up as new.  Nothing wrong with the answer letter layout.  And, the cartoon was a dandy.  Nice twins.  They kinda resemble Tom Hanks.  Any golfers out there care to explain how 4 and 4 are a 2 SUM?  Maybe it’s golf jargon?  I think – in a few ways – this Jumble failed to make par.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Got it. I thought it was a play on “four-some.” Maybe not. Not too sure I would have gotten two-sum!!! Either way, grand ‘ole puzzler!
