Like a peaceful hammock nap, the game of golf typically involves relaxation, fresh air, and the hope that gophers will remain underground or, at the very least, civil. Pave the way toward smoother strokes with today's Groupon: for $50, you get a personal Callaway golf performance assessment at The World of Golf (a $150 value) in Midtown.
The World of Golf boasts New York's only Callaway Performance Center, a state-of-the-art training system that comprehensively analyzes any stroke. High-speed optics and a four-camera system accurately capture each golfer's swing, measuring data such as ball speed, launch angle, and the player's ability to resist throwing scorecards at his or her caddy. A specialist then analyzes the results to provide insight on the swing and to identify the optimal shaft and head combination. Armed with a new club, players can expect to experience drives that are longer, more accurate, and more consistent overall.
The World of Golf is located just a pitching wedge's range away from Grand Central Station. If desired, golfers can choose to undergo the swing analysis only, opting themselves out of the club-pairing experience. Online appointments are required for all sessions.
- I picked up a Calloway [sic] driver here a while back and it was a great experience. I not only got to demo the club upstairs, but I also got to check my swing callibration [sic]. It's a cool spot. Really friendly staff, great prices, and convenient midtown location. I definitely recommend this place for all golfers. – NYC311, Citysearch
