Mastering a peerless golf swing requires intense concentration on the arc of the club and a healthy disregard for the condition of your neighbor's statue garden. Control your projectile's path with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a nine-hole golf lesson with golf pro Natalie Dunn from Executive Links, LLC (a $100 value). Today's deal can be redeemed at any golf course within 50 miles of Salem's center, and the client must cover the cost of a round of golf for him or herself.
Golf pro Natalie Dunn helps tune up games from tee to green, bestowing students with feedback and advice while playing through nine holes at one of any local golf courses. A former competitive collegiate golfer and current volunteer coach for the women’s golf program at Willamette University in Salem, Natalie draws on years of experience perfecting putts and reforming improper swing mechanics. Before teeing off, Natalie helps clients decide on a practice course, where she'll shadow her apprentice and dispense tips on stance and swing. As golfer and guru play through the nine holes, feedback on form are complemented with advice on course management and mental aspects of the game such as club selection and how to read greens that are written in toddler calligraphy.
Executive Links’ golfing reps play along with golfers in order to help them to perfect their game in real time. Under instructors' tutelage, golfletes will shear strokes from their averages on their choice of local course, as opposed to a driving range. Pros go beyond just perfecting swings and focus on the mental aspects of golfing, proffering advice on course-management tips, such as when to go for the green, when to lay up, and how to motivate lackadaisical ball washers. They mold lessons around pupils' styles and goals, ensuring athletes master new techniques without completely altering their personal styles. The teachers often give corporations a leg up on competitors by escorting prospective clients around the links and doling out instruction, employing the same degree of courtesy as Romeo would have required to meet Juliet’s parents.
