Like performing dental work with a ballpoint pen or greeting your father-in-law, golf requires a steady hand and a wealth of patience. Learn the tools of the trade with today’s Groupon: for $75, you get your choice of a one-hour lesson; a club, putter, or ball fitting; a mental-game session; or a fitness evaluation at MetaGolf Learning Center in Englewood (a $150 value).
The knowledgeable links-loving staff at MetaGolf takes a three-step mind, body, and swing approach to mold bogey-prone walk spoilers into fundamentally sound golfers. With today's Groupon you can opt for a private one-hour lesson in which a golfing professional will evaluate your game and help to develop routines and techniques that will assist you on the driving range and the fairway known as life. An assessment of physical strength and flexibility addresses any limitations that could affect athletic performance, and a videotaped analysis helps identify problems with your swing and reminds you how good you look on film.
For those who are looking to hone specific aspects of their game, MetaGolf offers several other instructional sessions as an alternative to a private one-on-one lesson. Learn concentration skills that will boost confidence and calm nerves on the course with a mental-training session led by Dr. Bill Campbell. A fitness evaluation provides hands-on therapy as well as stretching and conditioning that will test everything from joint movement and core strength to spinal angle and fear of sand. Finally, players can choose a club, putter, or ball fitting, where instructors will use a launch monitor, video and computer analysis, or laser putting equipment to arm athletes with gear that is custom fit to their body and swing, producing optimal results that erase former feelings of plaid envy.
