Power through impediments with today’s Groupon: for $75, you get a golf instruction package at Brian Machen Golf in Irwin (a $150 total value). The package includes:

Former Marine and PGA-section-tournament champion Brian Machen straightens the kinks in his students’ swings with disciplined techniques refined during 12 years of teaching experience. Brian’s common-sense approach breaks down his students’ swing mechanics and isolates fundamental components until the full motion becomes second nature. During a half-hour swing analysis, players launch balls from the practice area while Brian jumps out from behind bulky golf bags to capture their swings and startled expressions with high-resolution JC video-system software. These video images form the basis for two private follow-up lessons in which Brian takes turf-shoveling strokes to task, helping with subtle adjustments in stance and switching out polka-dotted sweater vests for respectable plaid polos.
Brian’s fact-based, comprehensive cadre of techniques applies to beginners, midhandicap players, and touring professions alike. Golfers of all ages and abilities can perfect their long drives on indoor or outdoor greens, and later access an online video lesson to force loved ones to watch during family movie nights.
