Omaha Steaks

unnamed (1)

Is your dad hungry… all the time? Treat him to a home cooked t-bone dinner he won’t soon forget. The folks at Omaha Steaks not only sell some of the best cuts on earth, they also offer special packages for almost every special occasion, including Father’s Day. This year their “Father’s Day T-Bone Dinner” caught our attention in a big way.

Headlining this combo is one gargantuan (30oz) T-Bone steak with the flavor enhancing bone in the middle. And this steak a mammoth! Almost 2″ tick at the bone you’ll want to give this T-Bone some extra time too cook. Add in some Potatoes Au Gratin and you’ve got a complete meal. But what would Father’s Day be without treating Dad to dessert? When he’s about to keel over from the steak and potatoes you can knock his socks off with some delicious New York Cheesecake for dessert. But that’s not all… if he wants lunch the next day this package also comes with a pack of Gourmet Jumbo Franks and Omaha Steaks Sliders. Buy this present for dad, but make sure he shares it with you!

Arccos 360


Arccos 360 comes in with 13 low-profile sensors and 1 putter sensor that screw into the end of each club grip and track each shot that you hit during your round.  When you tee off and then hit your second shot you will get to see how far your drive was and the distance remaining to the green.  After each hole, you will get real-time analytics that show you how far you hit each shot, and if you hit the green in regulation, how many putts you hit and other useful metrics.  Arccos also delivers round by round summaries and the ability to compare and monitor your improvement.

For the price of a new driver, you can get dad a system that will help him work on his game. While it is not a coach, you can read the analytics to tell you where your game is going well and where you really need to pick it up. For example, during a recent round the front nine was a disaster, and after making the turn I noticed my driving distance was below 215 yards and thus making it hard for me to hit the green in regulation. I decided to make some changes and focus on my driving distance. On the back nine, I was able to get an average of 245, which was reducing my average approach shot distance and getting on the greens faster. The system allows you to focus on the area of your game that needs attention. The bad thing about the system is it is very honest so if you don’t like seeing bad things about your game, then you might not want to look until the end of the around. Overall, if you want a system that is like your own personal caddie and will hold you accountable while helping you improve, then the Arccos 360 deserve dad’s attention.
