A Google-a-Day Puzzle for Wednesday, May 11th

Reading Time: 2 minutes

As we’ve reported before, our good friends over at Google are starting up a daily puzzle challenge. Each day’s puzzle will task your googling skills a little more, leading you to Google mastery.

And much to our enjoyment, they’ve decided to share the puzzles with us at GeekDad (hmm… Google a Day? GD? GeekDad?), so each morning at 12:01am ET you’ll see a new puzzle, and the previous day’s answer (in invisitext) posted here.

SPOILER WARNING: As a test, we’re going to leave the comments on so people can work together to find the answer. As such, if you want to figure it out all by yourself, DON’T READ THE COMMENTS!

Also, with the knowledge that because others may publish their answers before you do, if you want to be able to search for information without accidentally seeing the answer somewhere, you can use the Google-a-Day site’s search tool, which will automatically filter out published answers, to give you a spoiler-free experience.

And now, without further ado…

TODAY’S PUZZLE:

The same man who illustrated “Princess Parizade Bringing Home the Singing Tree” also illustrated a cover for Harper’s Weekly. What hole of golf are the men playing on that cover?

YESTERDAY’S ANSWER (HIGHLIGHT TO SEE):

Go to Google Maps to see which part of the United States could be closer to China than New Zealand is to China. See that some of the Aleutian Islands in Alaska are farther west than New Zealand. Search [westernmost Aleutian Islands]. Find out that you must be standing on Alaska’s Near Islands.
