  1. any truck gurus?

    I've always been into anything with an engine. We race karts right now. I haven't had anything in a while as far as projects. I inherited my dad's 98 silverado when he passed that I plan on fixing up once we are done racing karts. I currently have an 06 Trailblazer SS, but it's pretty much been kept stock.
  2. Nice info @Train Your Aim   Unfortunately, my course has been closed recently due to inclement weather so I am down to putting in my living room which isn't ideal. I can't wait to get it out on the greens and actually put it to use where I can get some good feedback
  3. That might not be a bad idea. It doesn't bother me that they are the same color though. But I haven't had a chance to get it outside on a practice green yet either
  4. I received my Dirty Larry - Navigator today as well. I was pretty impressed with the packaging. Although, I do believe the cost could have been a little less with a different packaging system. I agree that it is very obvious that it is American made and there is a lot of pride in that fact. The Navigator included a nice set of instructions that tell you everything you need to know. It installed very easily and using the box for setting it up really helped. I think that was a nice idea and I'm sure is the reson for the box in the box. He doesn't want the main box getting destroyed in shipping and lose the alignment capability. I look forward to getting this out to the course and trying it out! Disregard that putter shaft. I have had it for years and it stays in the garage...
  5. The Train Your Aim putting aid by David Keller arrived on Saturday which I was very impressed with. The shipping time gets a definite thumbs up from me. My initial thoughts upon first opening were that the TYA aid was compact and should fit in my bag with no issues. This is another thumbs up as it will be very easy to carry at all times.  The instructions on the back of the package were also very simple to follow, but did not mention that the pointer was adjustable. Other than that detail, using the aid should be pretty simple as well.  Installation on the putter is self explanatory even without the instructions. I actually like the bright orange color because it stands out and allows you to easily focus on the pointer and the face angle. One of the immediate things I noticed was how easy it was to see what your club face is doing. So far I like it and the 9.99 price tag. Once the weather breaks and I can take it to the practice green, I will make a final opinion on the TYA and update.

    Yeah, I've got to figure out a strategy as well. But like you said, plenty of time to learn a strategy. Worst case, it will be great learning experience for next year's strategy

  9. AMA Thread (@iacas)

    What are your thoughts on someone going into business with a partner even though they have a successful job now?
  10. I think you may have misunderstood me. I meant that as it's not "only" a BB thing. I have been there and done that. You are correct. To take in 4k calories with "clean" food, it's tough. It is easier if you spread it around with more meals obviously. But it's not a necessity. I don't like supplements personally, so I try to get all of my calories in with food. I don't think your diet has to be "strict" to be 12% or even 8-10%. I just think it needs to be quality foods. The trainer I used to work with has a few guys that have 2-3 cheat "days" during the week. And by cheat days, I mean they are eating 6-10k + calories on those days. Obviously they can't eat that much clean, but they will eat a lot of clean foods topped off with pizza or ice cream or whatever they wish to help hit the cals and are in that BF range. The key is getting your metabolism in check. I know that once I start watching what I eat and following certain macros, I will get to where I can eat like crazy! That's the key to getting all of those calories in with a couple meals. Just look at the warrior diet (I believe it was the warrior diet) for example. You eat very little during the day (blueberries, some almonds etc...) then you eat all of your calories in one meal. I've seen plenty of guys do well on this type diet too. All of these different styles can work. It basically just comes down to what style fits you the best and will allow you to stick to it without a lot of stress over your diet.
  11. New clubs suggestions...

    Well, I bit the bullet and ordered the clubs for him. I requested we go with a comparable steel shaft though. I want him to be the best he can be and having these new fitted clubs are the first step. I figure they should be here within 2 weeks.
  12. I was told a long time ago from a well known trainer that the number of meals didn't matter. It all comes down to getting in the appropriate amount of calories within that day. I've tried them all at one point in time. I found that it was much easier not to worry about the number of meals and just concentrate on the calories and macros. 6 meals a day is pretty strenuous for a lot people with their jobs. If you stress over getting your meals in, then you are working against yourself as stress does not work well for weight loss. 6 meals a day is not necessarily a BB thing. It's a metabolism thing. I remember when everyone went through the multiple meals a day so strictly they were setting their alarms to get up in the middle of the night to eat...haha. Come on man, that's too much.
  13. Where are you on the distance issue?

    Yeah, I was curious on the average distance for irons today so I did a search. I ran across this table from June 6th, 2014. I voted indifferent. I'm not 100% sure how I feel about the distance issue yet. I enjoy seeing the long ball hit but don't want the game coming down to bomb and gouge either.
  14. I voted yes. It can for sure work. I've been with a non-golfer for 9+ years and have had no issues. She tried it once with me and actually did really good but she just doesn't like sports. Now our 14 year old is hooked, so that will help out..haha!
  15. Play and practice more. Work on helping my 14 year old be the best high school golfer he can be. Have a more optimistic outlook on life and spend as much time with my family as possible
