Long ago, Scottish polo players longed for a game where they could explore scenic terrain, ride an obedient mechanical horse, and wear more courageously plaid knickers. Marvel in their subsequent invention with today's Groupon: for $39, you get a golf lesson and video analysis at Bobby Lopez Quick Fix Golf (a $79 value). The Groupon is good at three locations, including the Sports Center of Richmond on Overbrook Road, which has indoor golf facilities.
Bobby Lopez, a seasoned Class A PGA professional, identifies students' swing problems with the laser precision of a canny competitor and uses video software to prioritize areas where students can improve the quickest. After identifying the kinks, imbalances of black bile, and chi leakage points responsible for weaknesses in form, Lopez presents golfers with down-to-earth methods and drills to improve their swing. Forty-five minutes of slow-motion video analysis and swing repair will be recorded and sent to participants via email or CD so they can review their drills and goals as they practice. Golfers can also upgrade to higher-priced lessons or cybernetic arms to replace the fallible flesh responsible for shanks and wobbly slices.
Quick Fix Golf with Bobby Lopez
Bobby Lopez's passion for the game of golf was fostered by the expert tutelage of world-class players such as Bob Toski, Henry Cotton, and "Wild" Bill Melhorn. As a "Class A" member of the PGA, Bobby brings years of experience to his teaching game, a distinctive approach to instruction, and the ability to leap wide sand traps in a single bound. Bobby works with each golfer's mechanics and techniques, rather than against them, during drills he designed himself to help pupils cut strokes and time from their hosted game. When not developing students' drives, short games, and club choices, Bobby hosts "The Bobby Lopez Golf Hour" on Fox Sports 1340 AM, and also takes time to support the USO.
