OF COURSE!

Times Standard (Eureka) - - LIFESTYLE - BY JACK MOWAT AND JEFF CHEN / EDITED BY WILL SHORTZ

Jack Mowat, 20, of Omaha, Neb., is a sopho­more at Notre Dame study­ing civil en­gi­neer­ing. A self-de­scribed crossword “fa­natic,” he and his room­mate used to solve the New York Times crossword to­gether ev­ery day and hang the com­pleted puz­zles on the wall. The in­spi­ra­tion for this one was his dad, an avid golfer. This is Jack’s sec­ond puz­zle for The Times. His col­lab­o­ra­tor, Jeff Chen, is a writer and pro­fes­sional crossword con­struc­tor in Seat­tle. — W.S. ACROSS 1 Big inits. in news
