To lengthen his drive, Arnold Palmer famously consumed a combination of lemonade and iced tea; to master his short game, Jack Nicklaus famously practiced. Give your golf game The Golden Bear treatment with today's deal: for $59, you get one 45-minute private lesson at the Jack Nicklaus Academy of Golf at DragonRidge Country Club, located in Henderson. Clubs are not included in this deal.
The swing scientists at Nicklaus Academy at DragonRidge hone in on fostering club mastery, helping golfers of all levels sharpen their game in a climate-controlled coaching studio. Students focus their 45-minute lesson on one of three aspects of their game. The full-swing lesson employs high-speed video capture and analysis in the Jack Nicklaus coaching studio to correct flaws in stroke and dissect the most celebrated sports bloopers. Clients can also choose to galvanize their greens game with a putting lesson, complete with computer-generated stroke capture and analysis in the TOMI putting lab, or smarten their short-shot approach with in-depth instruction in the Nicklaus Academy Short Game Training Area.
Swing through for a lesson and receive the philosophical insights derived from Nicklaus as well as the analytical insights from calculative technology. The academy's coaching studio is fully equipped with launch monitors, kinetic movement sensors, pressure-sensitive mats, and a high-speed video system to pinpoint problems and realign your stroke. Unlike doing the Macarena in the mirror, seeing your fluid movements on the monitor leads to a more comprehensive understanding of your game. Your knowledgeable instructor will explain the subtle nuances of your movement and tailor the lesson accordingly.
The team can analyze your swing until the cows come to mow the fairways, but their mission is to take the initial findings and get you on the fast track to tee-time triumph. With their results-oriented approach, they won't pressure you to reinvent your entire game; instead, they'll build around your stroke's strengths to achieve impactful results on an abbreviated learning curve. One lesson is enough to transform a slapstick short gamer into a well-informed shooter with calm confidence.
