I hit the micro-target from 3' in 6 tries the night before last and 10 tries last night.  It took me 36 tries tonight.  And poor Allie took 40 whacks at it without keeping it in the micro-target.  But that's the beauty of it.  If I asked her to hit and make 40 3-footers, she'd get bored after about 10 putts.  But she stood there and ground out 40 putts trying to hit that stupid little hole.  

Allie got it in 7 tries tonight.  And I got it in the first try.  Walk off...

Have any of you been able to put something under the mats to simulate a break?  

Have you tried the training aids on an actual putting green to see how using the mat translates to the greens?

Something that I really have enjoyed about my PuttOUT trainer is to use it during outings.  I'm sure we've all been there when the putting green is packed and there are 5 people hitting to the same hole.  I've made my own hole on the putting green by taking out the trainer and using it in an open area of the practice green.

I have yet to do this, but it folds up so small that I'll definitely try it.

I wouldn't be surprised if more precise speed control on 6 foot putts transfers in some degree to longer putts. 

Totally agree with that -- I try to think of my 6 ft putt speed as my baseline from which I try to calibrate the stroke on longer (or uphill), and shorter (or downhill), putts.

Also..

Interested to hear more testers' thoughts about the mirror, as you each get more experience working with it!

2nd week with the mirror. It's getting better, more natural... but still don't like the contact with the ball when using the mirror.

It's giving Allie fits, trying to hit it through the gate, but she's doing much better with keeping her eyes over the ball.  And same with me.  I feel like I'm SBST when I'm putting my best (never been on SAM or anything like that), so having my eyes over the ball really makes it seem easier to put a good stroke on the ball.

Fellow testers - Are you noticing a groove forming in the mat?  My oldest says she thinks she can see a groove in the mat.  I don't know if I see it or not.

Has the mirror caused anyone to change their setup and eye position?   If you did change,  what was the reason was it because you thought you were doing something you weren't (thought eyes were over the ball) or because people say your eyes should be over the ball?

Absolutely for me. I thought my eyes were over the ball, they were about 3 inches outside.

My practice routine now starts with about 10 putts using the mirror to check and regrain my setup 

I'm not sure if this setup issue is only since my injury hiatus, or if it's been a long term thing. I can see myself (did you like that😉) using the mirror long term for a quick checkup.

I was thinking about a groove forming the other day. Im not sure, but there could be a slight texture change happening. I might start putting from the other end of the mat for a while, then alternating.

Yes, I've definitely changed to get my eyes over the ball.  I suppose I should say that it's not a change as much as a correction back to what I know is correct for me.  I don't know that the position of my eyes really matters, but when I have my eyes over the ball, I keep my weight toward the balls of my feet and my hands higher.  I can do all of that with my eyes inside the line, but everything falls into place when my eyes are over the ball.  When my weight gets back on my heels, I tend to pull putts.  

After missing a couple of four-footers in a round last fall, I worked with one of the pros at TFT on this, and he confirmed that for me, I putt better with my weight forward and my eyes over the ball.  I won't say that this works for everyone.  I believe Ben Crenshaw has his eyes well inside the line.  Between Ben and me, we've won two Masters 🤣, so I think it's whatever works best for your stroke, but you would do well to have an expert pair of eyes observe how you putt.

Took my mirror to the practice green myself today and I was also too far away with my eyes about 4" inside, and very open to target with my feet and shoulders. Ball position had also crept beyond my left (forward to target as a righty) eye as well. Got everything back on track and got a good feel of the Spider X after today's 2 hour session.

OK, I'm not the only seeing things then.

I don't see the groove forming, but I did notice the ball going offline shortly before the hole. I thought maybe there was something under the mat creating the break, so I lift the mat and it's all flat. It's the same spot I've been using the past 2 weeks and the break wasn't there.

I try to set-up naturally with the mirror cover. Then have my kids remove the cover and to see where my eyes are at. I'm pretty much over the ball, maybe 1 inch inside. But doesn't seem to affect my stroke nor the results.

I wanted to log my ShotScope results for yesterday's tournament and the battery died after 8 holes. Bummer!

This is what I've heard from the reviews of the mat, and what made me hesitate on pulling the trigger. I hope it's not true!!

 

Anyone have any plush carpet they can test the mat on? I don't have a long enough hard surface in my house so if I were to buy one, I'd have to put it on the carpet and we got some pretty plush stuff with soft padding underneath.

The groove in the mat has been the only thing holding me back from getting it. I noticed it videos and pictures of other users that grooves had formed down the middle. I read somewhere also that you cant vaccum them out either.

I vaccuumed mine and it seemed to help make it appear like there was less groove. Putt Out seems to recommend rolling it back up and putting it in the tube. I always leave mine laid out on my cork floor in the basement. 

The other option is to move the hole left and right of the center line which will also add difficulty and help prove if you'lining up as well as you think with less lines to help.

      Simple but effective. Set up an indoor hitting bay using 1/2 the garage. Anyone else have a good indoor set up?

      Hello there!
      Since there aren’t near ranges where I live and courses memberships and fees are expensive, I have searched for alternatives.
      Found the famous Birdie balls and the Almost Golf Balls and yesterday I came across this new ball: Sci-Core practice ball: here’s a link to a video of them: https://youtu.be/sjVC1mCJEF4
      I have to admit they look good at least. They seem to be similar to the Almost Golf Balls.
      Has anyone from this forum tried them? Would love to see your reviews and experiences

      Yesterday I had the opportunity to play a very nice away course that I really enjoy and haven't played in several years. We got there in plenty of time to warm up, almost an hour before the round.
      It was hot and I didn't want to over do it. But I took a small bucket maybe 30 balls and hit 15 or so 7 irons and 10 drivers and about 5 wedges or so.  
      I hit all three very solidly and was happy.  Then went and putted for 20 minutes.  Rolled in my 2nd putt from 30 feet.   Ok this is going to be a good day.
      Get to the 1st tee a pretty wide fairway and only about 340 yards.   I proceed to push it dead right into the pond that had to be at least 70 yards from the center of the fairway. 
      Doubled the hole and tripled the next with an OB 7 iron off the tee off par 3. 
      Went like that the rest of the day...except for the driver.  But every iron I hit was horrible.  Wedges werent as sharp as usual and I swear I forgot how-to putt in the first 25 minutes of the round.  
      All this led to a disheartening 102, filled with 7 penalty strokes and 5 three putts. 
      Earlier this year. I've gone straight from the office   without litteraly 3 practice swings by the cart before the first tee and shot in the 80's. 
      So it makes me wonder if a range session really helps me before a round.  Maybe 10 minutes swinging the Orange or Yellow Whip is all I need to go play.  
      What are your all's thoughts on the importance of hitting the range before a round.

      Curious to hear and glean some tips from some of y'all's practice routines. What kind of routines do you go with to keep your game crisp? Range routines, short game practice, at home practice, whatever you're doing to get that Handicap dropping!
      What kind of frequency you're practicing, specific things you're focusing on, games you play on the range to get closer to real-round scenarios, let us hear it!
