A couple ways. Putt on carpet at the house. Since I'm in North Texas, I can still sometimes get out to practice greens even in the winter. I also implement a 4 foot aluminum ruler in the house to work on keeping a straight line at the start of the putt. And I've been using the PuttOut Pressure trainer - both on the carpet, and with the Wellput mat noted below.

I've recently been trying a Wellput mat in the house. It's good overall because it is faster than the area rug in the living room, but I am keen to try some other options to see if I prefer them to the Wellput. One of the biggest downsides I already see with Wellput is it seems like the "grain" on the mat changes frequently as the ball rolls, so I am interested to see if other mats have a more consistent grain that I'm not having to constantly "fix."

I would want to test the Medium (10-11 Stimp) speed.

I literally was just looking into this yesterday! I'm assuming I'm not eligible as I'm currently testing the Kanibi CBD.  Maybe I'll hold off on purchasing to see what you all think.  Especially if anyone gets the 4ft wide 8ft length private course medium stimp, with 2 cups into the grain and 1 down grain, and contour shims 😉. Good luck to all!

  1. First Name and Location: Kevin in Gilbert, AZ
  2. How do you keep your putting sharp through the winter? There is no winter in AZ so I'm on the course putting greens
  3. Current/Past Experience with putting mats. Pretty terrible. I've owned several. I still have one at the office, but honestly putting a coffee mug sideways on my carpet in the living room is better. Can highly related to the 'competitor's product' image with the lumps and bumps in it. So frustrating.   
  4. Go to www.birdieball.com and tell us which speed green you'd want to test. Medium 10-11 Stimp.

  2. I was gifted a golf mat this past winter, which lives smack dab in the middle of my living room. Unfortunately there's no under backing and the holes are proped up with some styrofoam, so its gotten wrinkled and has an interesting break pattern. My putting has gotten better and my stroke is smoother, but tough to understand the results. 
  3. See above a bit, its much better than putting on carpet but more of a swing practice than line or consistant roll practice. I think theres room for a better mat (something closer to a golf store), I just havnt touched one yet. If I had a garage I'd most certianly attempt to build one :) 
  4. "slow" speed - I tend to have the most problem trusting hitting a putt hard at a local course than tapping one down a fast line

2.  I practice all year round when playing the course. Most LA county practice putting greens are closed. So, the course it is.

3.  I have owned the cheaper maxfli with the automatic comeback, but it is a bit cheap and doesn't roll true.

4.  Slow 9-10. Muni

I practice on carpet during the winter. My living room only rolls to an 8!

I had a putting mat that I won. It was too slow and developed wrinkles. Poor quality.

I would like to test the medium speed.

Im used to putt on an 15 feet putting matt.

I have had 3 different during the last years and I'm sure I need. Every time I go to a tournament the matt is on my golf bag.

Classic, 4 ft width, 20 ft long, fast speed, 5 holes, 3A and 2B.

  2. I probably spend 2 hours a week on a little 8-foot kidney-shaped mat.  I find it incredibly addicting to practice my putting stroke and work on a repeatable result on that mat.  I'll work on running it into the hole at different speeds, work on different spots on the hole, etc. 
  3. I love practicing my putting, but find that the mat I'm using doesn't really translate to the course as well as I'd like.  I'm also never quite sure if there are biases in it, especially the cheap foam part where the holes are cut.  I'm in the market for something new and better, and the BirdieBall mats are at the top of my list.
  4. I think medium speed would be most useful/helpful for me so I'd like to test that.

1. Jaime, Cooperstown, NY

2. I'm spending my first winter in NY after living in California, so I'm having to figure out a winter set-up for the first time

3. I had a narrow, 8-foot putting mat years ago, and wood floors with no flat spots, so I couldn't trust I was putting straight or the break of my flooring

4.  Medium speed 

5. Weird flex but ok: I've written for the NYTimes

I putt on a Putt About Matt in my office and a Sklz putt returner in the basement. 

I think a medium or fast speed would be ideal in the multiple flag configurations. 

Thank you.

Am in the market for an indoor putting mat. Just got fitted for a new putter so need a way to practice off the course, especially as green conditions here on Cape Cod get a bit worse at the end of the season. Also just cleaned out a space in my basement office for one.

The biggest knock on artificial putting greens is that they don't roll like real putting greens. BirdieBall believes it's cracked the code. Using a proprietary foam material, it claimed status as MyGolfSpy's  "Best Putting Mat 2020."

Given the state of the world, it seems everyone is adding something to the "at home" practice arsenal, so here's your chance to keep sharp while locked down.

I practice on an indoor putting mat and at the driving range, on a putting green. I play very frequently and can have seen enough different putting mats to know an acceptable inexpensive mat to an incredible expensive mat. I've also seen my fair share of awful putting greens all over northern Virginia.
