  1. Shaun - Seattle, WA
  2. I have a Puttout mat and Pressure Putt Trainer that I use daily for at least 15 minutes between and during shows and conference calls 🙂
  3. My first putting mat was the PROADVANCED ProInfinity Putting Mat - 4 Speed Golf Green simulator. I enjoyed the variable speed options but the length, constant need to brush the grass smooth and look was a bit intense after awhile. My current Puttout mat is great but I used it so much during quarantine/lockdown that I wore a groove into the center line.  Exhibit A:  This is me. 
  4. I mostly play municipal courses but the occasional private course, so a slow or medium speed would be great.

Home Course: Jackson Park Muni, Seattle

GHIN: 18 to 20

I got fitted full Ping G400 before knowing about MGS... looking forward to trying new brands once my clubs get old enough or I stumble upon a spare 5k. 

Driver 10.5° Stiff, 3W Stretch Stiff, 3H Stiff, 4H Stiff, 5i - PW Stiff 

52°, 56°, 60° Ping GLIDE 3.0 

Putter: Ping Stigma 2

Bag: 2019 Ping Hoofer 

Ball: Bridgestone Tour BX but currently going through a box of Sugar balls from Austin, TX and liking them a lot.

  2. I keep my putting skills sharp by doing putting drills on a carpet.  It's now the only part of my game that I practice since it's all I have time to practice and it doesn't cost any money.
  3. I have never owned a putting matt outside of the putting greens at golf stores but I've been in the market to buy one for my home.
  4. Go to www.birdieball.com and tell us which speed green you'd want to test - I would like a medium speed green.

Currently if not trying to get to course and use putting green I have an old piece of artificial turf  ( 3  x 8') in basement. Flat on floor but try to put pieces (saucer plate(s) under it to get some break. Clearly not ideal keep considering getting something better. Love to test.

I don't usually so it goes to s***, but looking to stay on top of it more this winter as I have have my best handicap to date so don't want to lose it during winter conditions

I just have a 6ft roll out putting mat that I put on my carpet and a perfectputt that I put towards on it.  Looking for something that can be more helpful, fell like with it being on the carpet the break of the turf is easy to figure out constantly.

Most greens out here run fast so the medium 10-11 would be the ideal speed.

I putt balls around my apartment or head to the practice green at my local course when it's not raining

The last putting mat I remember using was the classic one that is kind of like a skee ball game. It ends slightly uphill and when you make it, the ball rolls back down the side. We had that in my house for a while until the mat got warped and worn out. Not a great mat, but not terrible either. Otherwise, I've never really used a putting mat.

I would want to test the Slow green speed. I'm a muni warrior!

I putt on a Momentus Putting Mat and one other mat.  One is a little faster than the other.

Also practice at my public course that has an annual fee for seniors and others.

Medium speed would be good.  Our green speeds at the course vary during the year from 10 to 12 on the Stimp Meter

2. For winter months I currently use 2, 3 hole putting mats like you’d find on amazon.

3. Ive used two 3 hole putting mats connected to one another. I’m guessing it’s about medium speed and has a foam ramp that leads up to the holes.

4. I’d like to test the fast speed putting mat.

  1. Jeffrey - Wellfleet, MA
  2. Picked up a Big Moss putting mat durring the last off-season
  3. They were always trash, but better than nothing until the BigMoss, love the roll and quality of the mat.
  4. The medium that runs around 10 in one direction, would be really true comp for my home course.

  1. Mark - Gardner, KS
  2. Limited practice at the course
  3. Years ago the fibers would get smashed down and then there was a slope or trough you didn't necessarily want.  The newer synthetic lawn greens seem better but I haven't tested them for a long period to know how they hold up. 
  4. I mostly place public courses so probably the Slow but wouldn't be opposed to the Medium or High.  I get onto a few private courses a year and the Medium might be nice to try out.  The High would be more for kicks to see what that's really like.
