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 $49, you get a computerized video lesson with golf-swing analysis at Good Start Golf School in Delray Beach (a $125 value).
Good Start Golf School's experienced PGA instructors impart score-shaving techniques using advanced video swing-analysis software on the range at Villa Del Ray Golf Club. As pupils pulverize golf balls under the watchful eye of a Good Start instructor, video swing-analysis software reviews the minute motions of every stroke in real time and slow motion, revealing any askew movements or signs of sweaty-palm slippage. Client swings are then played alongside an ideal model swing to provide patrons with a better understanding of the adjustments needed to make their pendulous swat more dependable. After the one-hour session, pupils depart with a CD containing video of their swing along with instructional graphics that they can use for later reference or play on a nonstop loop at neighbors' dinner parties.
After more than 40 years of teaching and playing experience, it's safe to call second-generation PGA pro Frank A. Clark Jr. a specialist in the art of the golf swing. Rather than rely on his intuition alone, however, Frank couples his keen sense of stroke with video analysis. That way, golfers can examine their own mechanics and identify areas for improvement. The camera he uses during this portion of a lesson captures 300 frames per second, recording every moment of the swing in fine detail, from backswing and contact to the follow-through and victory dance. Students can also soak up Frank’s wisdom through other lesson formats, including individual and group playing lessons and clinics on varying topics. Frank also offers Golf Fit classes, which help students hone the specific movements and positions of the five basic golf shots while improving overall health and wellness.
