The dimples on a golf ball help it fly farther with greater accuracy, just as the dimples on a baby help it steal candy from gullible strangers. Find your adorably sporty sweet spots with today's Groupon: for $14, you get four tickets for a one-day admission to the New Mexico Golf Show at Expo New Mexico (up to a $28 value). The event takes place Saturday, April 16 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Sunday, April 17 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is free for children 14 and younger.
As they wander the New Mexico Golf Show's 27,000-square-foot bazaar of booths, enthusiasts of all ages can sneak a peek at brand-new accessories before they hit stores, barter for used and vintage equipment, and learn new techniques from the gurus of golf etiquette. Seminars with PGA pros enlighten the slice prone to the finer points of posture, grip, and swing. Treat a favorite club (no putters) to a free regripping from Lamkin Grips—or trade it for someone else’s erstwhile accouterments during the golf swap benefitting area junior golf programs. The collectors’ corner, meanwhile, will beckon nostalgics with its array of vintage and rare equipment such as the dream journal found in Arnold Palmer's golf bag and a mint-condition Jack Nicklaus frozen in carbonite.
Throughout the day, random drawings for numerous prizes will shower a lucky few hundred with golf accessories, a trial membership to Tanoan Country Club, tickets to the 2011 U.S. Women’s Open, or even a SYNLawn artificial putting green. Children younger than 15 can also qualify for a special prize drawing if they clear the nine activities and three sphinx riddles of the New Mexico Junior Golf Experience.
