Booyah! Congratulations!

It sure can be scored typical but as you can see the G4 on the right isnít quite as impressive as the left G4 and then it goes down hill from there! He scored 386 typical his gross non typical is 438 and some change..

What am I missing, he looks typical to me?

Nevermind I see now. 

Thats not his G 4, thats a G 3.5. 

It looks like he grew an extra point there, which is really impressive.  Great bull man!

Great bull and welcome to the site.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

Every father should remember that one day his children will follow his example instead of his advice.
