Much like confronting a former bully at a high-school reunion, playing golf requires an efficient swing and at least three friends to cheer you on. Take a stand against a shank-producing stroke with today's Groupon: for $39, you get a one-hour lesson with high-speed video analysis ($80 value) from Steve Newman Golf with classes taking place at Coppage Creek Golf Center in Hendersonville.
Named a Top 25 Assistant Golf Professional in 2005, PGA professional instructor Steve Newman invokes more than 16 years of instructorship to assess creaky backswings and recalibrate misaligned follow-throughs. Nine years at the historic Oakland Hills Country Club instilled in Steve the deft touch that enables him to help fairway flailers remove wrenches from their golfing gears. The SwingVision high-speed camera captures drives, chips, and fist pumps at 300 frames per second, allowing Steve to dissect each aspect of your swing. All range balls and fees are included with the lesson, and swing videos can be sent to a smartphone or Facebook page.
