I finished this one in four. It’s my second finish in four in a row. The last time I got a four was Sunday, April 23.
Welcome back to the daily Wordle blog post! Today’s puzzle word was LOFTY, and it was a bit of a challenge, but I managed to solve it in just four guesses.
My first guess was GRIFT, which turned out to be incorrect, with both F and T in the wrong places. Next, I tried FATED, which also didn’t help me much, with F and T still in the wrong positions.
For my third guess, I went with TOFUS, and while it didn’t reveal any correct letters in the correct positions, it did give me some valuable information. Specifically, the letters O and F were both in the right positions, which allowed me to narrow down the possibilities for my next guess.
Finally, on my fourth guess, I went with LOFTY, and I was delighted to find that I had solved the puzzle! It’s always a great feeling to figure out the puzzle word, and I especially appreciated the fact that today’s word had a connection to my personal life.
Yesterday, I played golf, and golf clubs have a feature called “loft,” which refers to the angle of the club face that helps lift the ball into the air. It was a nice coincidence that today’s puzzle word also had the word “loft” in it.
Overall, I’m happy with my solve today, and I’m looking forward to tomorrow’s puzzle word. Tune in tomorrow for the next installment of the Wordle blog post!
