Visual Description:  Unnecessary explanation.

NUCKL  =  CLUNK,  TOARI  =  RATIO,  DIRSUA  =  RADIUS,  YEPDES  =  SPEEDY   —   Giving us:  CUROISSED

Clue/Question:  He talked about Frisbee Golf for so long, that it was sounding like a – – –

Answer:  DISCOURSE

(A fairly challenging stinky pun!  I wonder how many of you struggled with this one some?  I saw the word DISC right off the bat.  That left me with UROSE, which helped me to see the COURSE portion.  The guys played this one pretty straight.  They could have gone with a hyphen, maybe an extra C, and quotation marks.  But, they decided to keep it simple, which might have made it harder to solve.

Someone call ralis95 away from the pool.  But down the cocktail, brother.  You’ve got some work to do.  The first clue word, “clunk” needs to be added to the world famous clue word database!  I was a little surprised, but not shocked to see that it wasn’t already on the list.  Three of the jumbles came up as new, with only “dirsua” having been definitely used before.  I thought it was the toughest one.  The answer letter layout was another fine nine letter jumble.  Without the cartoon and the clue/question it might have been a tough one to unscramble.

Fine cartoon of a Frisbee Golf course!  The big mouth might be the course pro.  The players look kind of typical.  I liked the guy’s cargo shorts, black socks, and sandals.  They don’t exactly look like world class athletes.  I don’t think they could handle Spike Ball!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Only a brief delay. You know what rant is coming from me. O…M…G… this is our *second* final golf answer pivoting off COURSE in the past *14 days* and third going back to last August! No, adding a Frisbee disc doesn’t make it better.

    Here’s a challenge to our golf-obsessed puzzlers: come up with a final golf (or marathon, track, or car race) answer that includes C, O, U, R, S, and E but not in that order. Trying to solve that has the potential to DRIVE me nuts for a long time and exact a measure of revenge for my griping about it.

    I wouldn’t be too upset, David. For me, the main part of the answer was DISC. COURSE was secondary. What other word than SOURCE do you want the guys to do with those letters, bud? — YUR

    I thought, “Huh…,” when I saw the nine-letter grid but then recognized C, O, U, R, S, E in the available letters, plugged that in, and the three remaining letters made D, I, S (and C) clear. I saw COURSE before DISC because of the golf theme but understand why you would focus on the Frisbee and get it the other way around.

    I was suggesting the use of those six letters somewhere in the final answer other than for COURSE for added challenge. Though now that you mention it, using the word SOURCE, or at least a six-letter word in the answer, could add to the challenge, like having an -ING rabbit hole (a clue setting up an -ING word with those letters available but then not use them that way). Those answers can be tough to unscramble due to the fake-out.
