What You'll Get
Like suntans and long-distance relationships, golf skills disappear if you don't keep working at them. Keep the magic alive with today's deal: for $29, you get a 30-minute private lesson using TrackMan analysis, and 60 minutes of driving practice and games using the TrackMan system (a $110 value) at Novo Golf in Tappan.
The innovative TrackMan system's shot analysis function uses radar technology to analyze the minute details of your every shot, including distance, spin, and launch angle. During your 30-minute private lesson ($70 value), a pro will program TrackMan to evaluate your driving technique with 150 golf balls ($14 value) and every club in your bag, including the misplaced baseball bat. After your lesson, you get an hour of practice time ($26 value) to continue perfecting your shots with TrackMan's tutelage, and its game function. Whether you set it to multi- or single player challenges, you'll hone your aim at nine or eighteen real targets. Each shot is scored based on its distance to the target and altitude upon landing. All of your shot data is available immediately for the settling of scores and bets, and the complete details of every game can be accessed online for convenient office gloating in the weeks and months ahead. TrackMan also possesses a club comparison function, which will allow you to test and review all of the clubs in your bag to determine each one's averages, and create a fact-based argument for this year's Christmas present.
The Novo Golf center at Tappan features 85 heated and weather-protected hitting stations. Club rentals are $1 each. With more than 300 yards of driving distance on 26 acres of open terrain, golfers need not fear upsetting neighbors or destroying gopher housing developments. Improve your ability to knock decommissioned Soviet satellites out of the sky with a well-driven golf ball, thanks to today's Groupon to Novo Golf.
- The radar sent the tracking data from each of my shots to a tethered laptop computer, which almost instantly rendered beautiful three-dimensional representations of my ball flight, superimposed on distance grids…Within half an hour he had identified a club that took my backspin rate down to 2,300 from 3,500 revolutions per minute, and dramatically improved several other numbers as well, including my launch angle, my descent angle and the amount of roll. – John Paul Newport, Wall Street Journal
