What You'll Get
Besides improving one's game on the links, personalized golf instruction enables highly accurate paint flinging and better-aimed javelin throws at passing comets. Aim for the stars with today's Groupon: for $59, you get one full-game evaluation at Performance Golf Academies of America in Dublin (a $360 value).
Under the direction of Paul Newman and under the influence of his intoxicating resume, Performance Golf Academies’ staff members bolster ball-thwacking skills with tips based on advanced motion-capture technology. During a full-game evaluation, sensors strapped to the student's chest, waist, and lead wrist chart the body's torso twists, and an infrared transmitter clipped to the putter captures the motion of the club's head, offering easy-to-understand feedback and clever, multifaceted insults. The V1 digital coaching system can also compare your stroke to that of a PGA professional, with an instructor using the compiled information to identify areas for improvement and guide your transformation from an over-par ugly duckling to a hole-in-one golfer with webbed feet.
