In the spirit of the 1993 movie “Grumpy Old Men”, this jigsaw puzzle entitled “Measuring the Distance” takes a humorous approach to amateurs playing the sport of golf. As I examine this picture, I can definitely see my octogenarian father down on his knees measuring the distance for his ball. I say this because a) like the people in this picture, he hasn’t fully grown up yet (love you Pop!) and b) he and my mother would do this all the time when I was a child. Although, often the pose that I saw them in out on the hot, sunny golf course was down on their knees looking for their golf balls in the woods, sand trap or pond! Thankfully, golf is one of the few sports that allow people of all ages to participate in.
As you and your loved ones assemble this Sunsout puzzle by Susan Brabeau, you could have fun discussions about which character fits your personality. You could also discuss some of your fun or frustrating times trying to play the sport of golf.
