Much like King Kong, egos, and huggable lightning, golf is at once powerful and delicate. Fine-tune the balance of your game with today’s Groupon: for $79, you get a one-hour golf-swing evaluation with computer analysis at GolfTec (up to a $175 value depending on location). This Groupon is good at all three of GolfTec's Bay Area locations in Pleasanton, San Carlos, and San Jose.
Staffed by experienced coaches and computers who’ve sworn allegiance to the three laws of golfing robotics, GolfTec’s motion sensors and high-speed cameras monitor swings and break down each individual’s form on a high-definition video display. Sensors chirp with approval whenever they detect the perfect stroke or an especially witty golfing joke. GolfTec’s certified personal coaches will point out flaws and strengths while providing golfers with tips on how to permanently improve their games from tee to green. A pro-advised personal-improvement plan can also help linksmen chisel the sought-after golfer’s physique by offering ideas to balance technique, equipment, and physical conditioning.
