Clue/Question:  The golfer’s erratic play on the course resulted in – – –

Bryson DeChambeau brings his long game to the Masters - Los Angeles Times

Answer:  MOOD SWINGS

(I don’t know for a fact, but I’d guess that a good number of heart attacks take place on golf courses!  The game/sport is one frustration after another.  Especially, for the average duffers.  Slicing it, hooking it, topping it, skying it, landing in the deep rough, landing in a sand bunker, landing out of bounds, landing in a pond or creek . . . or the ocean!  Even the pros can only control just so much.  Golf has been described as a good walk spoiled.  But the best explanation of golf I ever heard came from Robin Williams!  Look it up, and give it a watch.  It will crack you up!

All of today’s clue words have played through before.  However, all of the jumbles appear to be fresh out of the box.  All pretty straight forward.  No doglegs.  The answer letter layout was a thoughtful ten letter jumble.  I thought it was amply cryptic.  I guess I just picked up on the word “erratic”, because I saw the final answer quickly.

Fun cartoon of what looks like our guys on the golf course.  If it is, it looks like Jeff is the calm one and David is the hot-head.  Calm down, cuz!  I bet Bryson DeChambeau sucks at word puzzles!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

What's open on Labor Day: SoCal beaches, parks, trails - Los Angeles Times

Clue/Question:  She forgot that giraffes have seven vertebrae, but she’d try to remember – – –

Cervical Vertebrae - Assignment Point

Answer:  NECKS TIME

(Excellent pun!  I don’t think this was a s t r e t ch by any means.  I thought it was an easy r e a c h.  But, I have to admit that I was not aware of the fact that mammals have the same number of cervical – neck – vertebrae!  I guess I just never thought about it.  I’ll have to store this in my memory banks, in case it comes up on Jeopardy, or something.

We’ve seen all of today’s clue words in past Jumbles.  Three of the jumbles appear to be new, with only “lentk” having definitely been used before.  I was able to see all the clue words immediately this morning.  The answer letter layout was a nifty nine letter jumble.  I knew that NECK had to be in the answer, but I’ve been a little fuzzy lately in seeing the pun aspect.  But, I did get the answer in about seven seconds.

I always enjoy Jeff’s cartoons with kids and animals.  Almost as much as anthropomorphic animals, historical period pieces, sports themed puzzles, TV/Movie themed ones, and sea scenes with the classic sinking sailboats.  Congrats to Jeff for being the Champion of the 11th annual JCC Poker Tourney in Indiana!  Today’s song is dedicated to you, bud.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
