In golf, birdie refers to one stroke under par, whereas eagle refers to the flying carnivores players trained to swipe their opponents’ clubs. Swing through with today’s Groupon: for $30, you get an introductory golf lesson and evaluation at 3D Golf Instruction in Cary (a $125 value).
Within 3D Golf Instruction's modern training sanctuary, PGA-registered instructor Brett Dippolito incorporates the latest developments in biomechanical swing-tracking technology to perfect each golfer's range of motion. Upon arrival, pupils tuck their torsos into the K-Vest, whose motion-analysis software maps clients' swings as they pulverize orbs under the watchful gaze of Brett and his swing-tracking camera. Quicker than a hummingbird having a panic attack, the camera captures swings at a rate of 2,000 frames per second, providing players with piecemeal visual aids to help solidify Brett's advice. Combining K-Vest motion data and visual playback, 3D Golf's lessons reduce the swing to a series of empirical facts, which Brett deftly dispenses to repair chronic slices and improve clients' success rate at denting the neighbor's sports car.
