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 $75, you get two one-hour private golf lessons with PGA professional Steve Kirkpatrick at Golf Rx in Mt. Juliet (a $160 value).
Steve Kirkpatrick, author of three instructional golf books and 22-year Class A member of the PGA, remedies shoddy, undisciplined golf games with private instruction in an indoor facility set at a comfortable 70 degrees year-round. Kirkpatrick schools club swingers of all levels during one-hour sessions, fine-tuning form, building technique, and correcting poor golfing habits. A V1 digital video system helps Kirkpatrick further analyze and amend wayward swings, while a Full Swing Golf Simulator measures the impact and ball flight needed to knock the neighbors' satellite off their roof.
