Golf obstacles parallel life challenges and reinforce conventional wisdom that the only way to escape rough patches is through excessive clubbing. Power through impediments with today's Groupon: for $43, you get a golf-swing analysis and coaching session with Scott Seifferlein from GrandRapidsGolfLesson.com (a $100 value). Lessons are held at The Highlands Golf Club & Golf Academy, which offers indoor and outdoor facilities for year-round training.
Featured in several local media outlets and in Donald Trump’s book, The Best Golf Advice I Ever Received, PGA-certified golf guru Scott Seifferlein applies techniques learned from 18 years of experience as well as K-Vest TPI 3D-imaging technology to improve golf swings in a 30-minute lesson. After placing military-grade sensors on the pelvis, upper body, and lead wrist, the K-Vest motion-capture technology produces a three-dimensional model of the client to measure swing mechanics and imbalances. Using split-screen capabilities, Scott claims to eliminate slicing problems in five attempts or less, making this an ideal gift for golfers or nervous hibachi chefs with shaky hands.
Instructors at GrandRapidsGolfLesson.com correct golfers' swing imbalances using time-earned wisdom and cutting-edge technological analysis. In private lessons, the instructors focus on mechanics and setup, helping to correct bad habits such as flat takeaways or uncontrollable sneezing during downswings.
