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 $50, you get a private, 90-minute videotaped golf lesson with a take-home CD of the lesson from Golf Instruction with Perry Green at The Golf Club at Wescott Plantation (a $120 value for adults, an $85 value for ages 5–17).
Instructor Perry Green enlists video analysis and nearly three decades of PGA membership to deftly diagnose swing deficiencies in private, 90-minute sessions. Armed with JC Video technology and a tripod that once qualified for the PGA Championship, Green recalibrates unsightly swings and grotesque putting strokes, helping club-toting trainees of all ages and abilities increase confidence in their short game, add extra distance to their drives, and overcome their fear of ball washers. Along with trusted technical advice, Green edifies clients with the hard-won competitive wisdom that guided him to a lengthy career, including the 2005 Illinois Senior Masters championship. Students walk away with a digital record of the lesson, allowing them to refresh waning muscle memories before their next high-stakes round or to ensure accuracy before shattering their neighbors' recently installed 2,000-kilowatt searchlight with a precise lob-wedge.
