TESTERS ANNOUNCED! The testers of the BirdieBall PuttUp mats are: @LeftyHawk @Chip Strokes @WaffleHouseTour @Manimal26 @EasyPutter @txgolfjunkie

TESTERS ANNOUNCED! Not to make this all personal, but since I live in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, I've got first hand knowledge of just how valuable an indoor putting green can be. Liv

best way to end a FRIYAY!!!!!!

1. Tyler from St Charles, Missouri 

2. Year round golfer here. I play in every amateur tournament I can play in. I practice at my nearby courses and in my basement on an old putting Mat. I’d love to give this a try to keep some consistency in my game during the winter. 
 

3. I have tried the perfect practice putting Mat in college. Since then I have also used a simple indoor golf putting mat that would crease far too easily 

4. The medium green would work perfect. It varies based on the course as I play on mostly private courses.

Hi, my name is Jiles Wyatt and as a top twenty high school golfer in the state of Kentucky I will provide you with an in depth and thorough examination of this product! Coming from someone who is only 5’8 I have to make sure that my putting ability on the course is unmatched by my competitors, I know that because of all the hours I spent perfecting my game I can provide a detailed description of the advantages and disadvantages of this product. Thank you.

Evan    Fort Myers, Florida
Putting on my putting mat occasionally, sometimes putting on the carpet.  I'll grab my putter in the garage every now and then and make practice strokes
I have a Callaway putting mat with an automatic ball return.  I stopped using it because I didn't find it to be an accurate putting experience so I'd like the opportunity to try the Birdieball mat.

Medicine Hat, Alberta.

I practice putting on a med/fast turf once a week in winter. I hit Birdie Balls year around & was one of the first to use them in winter with red tape around them so I could find them in the snow.

Practicing putting while doing the splits in my suspension system. 

I hit 4655 wedges before 2020 season started & am a 6 index. 

I would like to test the med/fast mat.

I did 310 rds in 2015 & got down to +1.2. I did 83 holes in one day. I have 3 records for fastest times for my home course at 37/42/44 mins & shot 77/37 at 6800yards.

  1. Kevin / Hudsonville, Michigan
  2. In the winter, I putt indoors on a carpet style putting mat in my basement that has a slight slope at the end and 3 holes to putt at.
  3. My current experience with putting mats is just the carpet style one I have at home. It has 3 holes with a slight slope and 2 channels behind the holes to catch any missed putts. The carpet style is quick and in no way resembles actual grass putting surfaces/greens. However, my experience with Birdie ball is that I own the original birdie ball golf practice tool/game that I play outdoors all of the time with friends and family. It is great that they now make a putting green!
  4. I would be most interested in testing out the "Medium - 10-11 Stimpmeter - Private Course" speed for the Birdie ball putting mats because the greens at my home country club course tend to be pretty quick and this mat would most resemble that speed.

Brian, Milwaukee, WI.

My putting does not stay sharp during the winter because my carpet doesn’t roll true.

My roommate had a putting mat that I used but I’m pretty sure it made me a worse putter. 

Medium Speed

Hi BirdieBall & MyGolfSpy:

  1. First Name and Location: Jeff, San Mateo, CA
  2. How do you keep your putting sharp through the winter?: I live in the Bay Area, so I can play outside year-round. 
  3. Current/Past Experience with putting mats:  Have always found them slow, inconsistent and don't hold up well to heavy use.
  4. Go to www.birdieball.com and tell us which speed green you'd want to test:   Fast / Championship speed please!

Stay sharp using practice green at local golf course. Unfortunately, course has closed.

No real experience with a putting mat though I do use a mat to practice chipping.

Green speed of 10 or higher is perfect for replicating South Texas greens.

(6) TESTERS WANTED: BIRDIEBALL PUTTING MAT

bg2020_indoormat_birdieball_std-05.jpg

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.

 

This opportunity is available to current forum members residing in the US. To apply, reply to this thread with the following information:

  1. Richard...Tucson, ArizonaFirst Name and Location
  2. Living in Arizona we pretty much play year around, so I generally practice at the course.  However I have been considering a backyard putting green for some time as it's both more convenient and I can Practice for a few minutes at a time.
  3. Past experiences with putting matts has been pretty poor.  Either they're cheaply made and the ball don't role true, or conversely they're lightning fast.  My only experiences with Professional quality mats is that they're most generally too expensive.
  4. I'd probably prefer the Medium with a Stimp of 11-13

1. I live in Richland, WA.

2. Hot or Cold I play year round. 
3. Have never really found a mat that replicates the real thing well enough to use.

4. Open for fast or medium. My home course generally roles pretty well. It would give me the most accurate comparison.

  1. Greg (Maryland)
  2. Putt on the carpet around the house
  3. Used to have one a long time ago with all sorts of folds that wouldn’t laybflsr which made proactive difficult. Unless going after the torn up green at some local muni courses. 
  4. I would be interested in testing the medium 10-11 speed. 
     

Thank you for the consideration!

Barry - Willow Park, TX

New to Texas so I am not sure how much on course practice I will get in the Winter.  Newly retired so I have time to practice and dedicated to do so.

I currently have a 9' Tour Links set up but find the carpet gets a groove or indentation after repeated practice time.  I am interested in the new surface Birdie Ball is offering.

Medium speed of about a 9-10' simp would be fine, anything faster doesn't allow for much stroke length to cover the mat's distance
