2019 Official Forum Member Review-Putt Out Golf Practice System


Recommended Posts

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. 

I roll mine up after every practice session (or the kids will end up playing on it) and the groove is still there.

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.

I have it on a fairly firm oriental rug.  Doesn't seem to be an issue, but nothing like plush carpet.

I did not know that.  I will start rolling mine up every night.  My wife will probably appreciate that.

That's no bueno.  I'll still try it and report back.

The mat definitely wrinkles when Allie steps on it.  If I pull the right edge taut, it's fine.  Tomorrow night, I'll try with a book.  So far, I'm loving the target and the mirror, but I can't see spending $90 on a mat that develops a groove in two weeks.

Well I was wondering why I was having issues with following the routine on the package and it's because of my path. Wow I knew it was off but my goodness I started to use the mirror and the gates and couldn't do crap. This review may end up in my revamping my whole putting stroke.

The good part is I think I found an old putting stroke I used a year or two ago that got me rolling it better than I have in a while. That meant I actually hit the micro target and didn't hit any gates. After 30 minutes of using that stroke I was able to stop thinking about it so much. Gonna take this to work on my 48 and hope that the stroke is consistent after 12 hours of not practicing it.

Do they suggest brushing it, ie. against the grain of the fibers to raise them back up?

Just fyi, with a Birdie Ball you can brush it "down" (= faster) or "up" (= slower).

I'm really curious about the speed of the mat and how it translates to grass. Every single putting mat I've ever had was lightning fast then I'm leaving everything short on the course. 

+1.  We had one in our "think tank/war room" at work and it was a astro-turf like product that rolled pretty true but like a billiard table.

I bought a BirdieBall 2 years ago and it was so fast compared to the greens I play here, it was useless. That's why I was interested in having a PuttOut mat on my carpet, because I read that might cause it to roll slower. However, the reviews saying it forms a groove turned me off to it. Hopefully at the end of your reviews, I'll have a good idea of whether or not I should grab one!

Also curious about the friction. Past mats were carpet-like so my putter smoothly slid back and forward on them even if pressed down. As we all know, grass is not slick like that so I'd run into issues where I've engrained a stroke that wants me to drag the putter along the ground only to be met by the harsh reality of a "chunked putt".  

 

 

Comments on either of these areas would be appreciated. 

I've got a piece of moulding to rig up a rough stimpmeter, remembering high school trigonometry and movement restrictions due to yet another medical procedure may push me back to next weekend, but I'm hoping to get something sorted in the next couple of days.

Something I've done recently in the "take it to the course" category: in settling in for a putt, I imagine the PuttOUT over the hole. In particular, I try to figure out the way the PuttOUT would need to be oriented to allow the correct break to bring the putt on the line to the micro target.

Nice! Everybody has their own visualization "key" to help them find either a line to the hole or a spot to putt to -- this sounds like a great method!!

Today I was practicing and when I wasn't making as many putts as I thought I should have I took a break. After the break I bellied some wedges and immediately made 5 in a row. Still not sure why I can belly a wedge better than I can putt. Made progress on my stroke though and made more today than I have since I've had the whole get up.

Appreciate the feedback, Cam! Thanks for joining us!

So basically we just have to wipe down the center line once in a while to fix it? I did try it at first and it only fixed it for about 30 mins, then it went back to the groove. Or is there a better way to "rough it up"?

Can has been great to work with.  We started this conversation about the testing back in the spring.   I'm glad we were finally able to get it going, he was very patient working with the busy testing schedule we had this year. 

And Putt Outs willingness to provide the complete system for testing was very generous. 

I'm looking forward to reading everyones thoughts.  This system is high on my list to take what is the strength of my game to an even higher level.

All. In.

Yup @Kanoito, it should be as simple as that. In fact, we've kept one specific model in our London office to see how it wears and develops with (A LOT) of use:

I've attached a picture of a 1.5 year old (left) and brand new (right) mat below to demonstrate the difference in appearance over time. As you can see, although the surface hasn't changed a whole lot, the new mat is a more sparkly with the fibres standing on end in the sunlight, whereas the 1.5 year-old mat is more of an unvaried colour throughout. This is because the fibres have been flattened out across the whole mat over hundreds of hours of putting/grind/obscure product development brainstorms.

Of course, if you do want to keep the mat staying at its most sparkliest for longer, the easiest thing to do along with brushing it is to vary the lines you putt on. So instead of just putting down the single central line, try mixing it up and putting with the two other parallel side lines, from the opposite end, or even across the mat diagonally and see how you fare.

Fingers crossed this is a help but if you have any more questions, fire them over and we'll be right here to answer them posthaste!

Well that's very kind of you @Golfspy_CG2. Let's hope the products help you as well as everyone else take the part of the game which there really shouldn't be any excuses for lacking to the next level. Here. We. Go.
