  1. 1. Where do you practice your putting?

    • I don't
    • Carpet
    • Putting Green at the course
    • Turf Setup

Recommended Posts

  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.

The winters go back and forth temperature wise that I can usually get to the range/practice green occasionally. When I can’t I just use the living room. 

the ones I have used were very basic and it seemed like I was making the exact same putt every time. 

I would like to test the high speed mat.

2. I use the carpet in my bedroom. As a college student living in an apartment, options are limited so this opportunity would be great due to the ability to move and pack up the birdieball green. I believe I would add a unique demographic to the focus group.

3. I have not used putting mats in the past nor currently. 

4. I would like to test the Fast/Championship speed greens.

Started golfing in March so no experience during winter. 

No experience with a mat but considering buying one this winter. Birdieball is on the short list. 

I play public and private so either slow or medium is fine.

  1. Peter, Chicago
  2. I have a PuttOut mat with the pressure trainer
  3. I had an old mat with a little ramp at the end that sent the ball back to you, it was poor quality but there wasn't much else out there. I then used carpet and then moved to the PuttOut a year ago.
  4. Medium, 10-11 stimp

I usually practice on a narrow strip mat in my family room in the winter.

I have only used the cheap narrow mats in the past. They like to retain the curves from rolling them up.

I would like to have a medium speed so I can ramp up or down on my local public courses.

Retired US Navy Submarines. Golf as often as I can. Love the challenge!

Adam- New Orleans 

I like to practice on a putting green if possible. I work on my game year round in my practice cave in my garage. 

I’ve owned a bunch of different mats, but haven’t found one that is close to a real green. 

I’d like to test medium if selected.

1) Brendan - Albany/NY

2) I have an artificial turf carpet that I have in front of the golf simulator that I practice putting on. It works but I find it too hard as it is just thin carpet on concrete. Bounces a lot because the concrete is not flat as well. Makes for a challenge!

3) I’m really not a fan of putting mats as they typically are your straight carpet to inclined hole which I hate or too expensive to get a legitimate patch of turf to practice on. Birdie all has caught my eye before but I thought the price was too much for the size I wanted.

4) Medium 10-11 would be ideal or Slow 9-10

  2. During the winter I will get creative with my kids and we simulate a mini golf type putting games in the house.
  3. Currently have a rollup generic mat that does not roll true do to creases from when its folded/ rolled up.  All mats I have had have been pretty much useless.  I always resort back to the good old fashioned carpet and putting cup!
  4. I would prefer the medium, but would also take the fast.  I feel that practicing on faster greens makes you a better putter

  1. Colten - Mapleton, UT
  2. How do you keep your putting sharp through the winter? I currently use a Putt Out mat with a Putt Out hole
  3. Working at a golf course in the past, I’ve putted on Big Moss, Putt Out, and Perfect Practice putting mats
  4. I would choose the medium speed green as I feel it would be most relatable to the course I play in Utah.
