(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. First Name and Location
  2. How do you keep your putting sharp through the winter?
  3. Current/Past Experience with putting mats
  4. Go to www.birdieball.com and tell us which speed green you'd want to test

1) Tony - Hollis, NH

2) short carpet in the basement and red solo cups

3) putting surface is either too spongy or the foam backing creases, making for an uneven ridged/bumpy approach leading up to the hole

4) Medium - 10 - 11 Stimpmeter - Private Course

Thanks for the consideration!

John - Columbus, Ohio 

normally put on carpet into a mug during the winter. 
ive had one of the cheap elevated putting practice thing and it actually helped a lot. 
 

I’d like to try the medium speed because I’m in dental school and don’t have much time to go to the putting green!

I practice putting all the time with a putting mat at home. An older Proactive varispeed putting matt. In addition to at the golf course. And with the Puttout putting pressure trainer. And with gates. And with eyeline mirrors. Etc. You name it. So I'd be happy and would embrace the opportunity to work with you to review the Birdie Ball Putting Matt. And to get my four year old daughter trying it too!. Hope to hear from you.

Used the COVID shut down to do a major Marie Kondo on the basement.  Plenty of room now so I purchased an Optishot golf simulator as a reward.  Planning on putting in daily work during the offseason to lower the handicap once an for all.  Would like to add something like this to also work on putting.

  1. How do you keep your putting sharp through the winter?

Im like Francis Ouimet and use a nice glass on my rickety wood floor.

  1. Current/Past Experience with putting mats

hardwood floor, some 2 inch carpet, and dreadful rugs that had some of the worst slopes ever.

  1. Go to www.birdieball.com and tell us which speed green you'd want to test

I would love the 11-13. Gotta practice on the best if you want to be the best

  1. First Name and Location:  Dave in Edwards, CO
  2. How do you keep your putting sharp through the winter?:  In the past I haven't, this the first year I plan to keep my whole game improving over the winter.  I just completed a conversion of a room in my home to be a full time golf simulator utilizing a Skytrak launch monitor and a Netreturn Simulation net.  I'm in the process of looking for a putting mat to add to the room.
  3. Current/Past Experience with putting mats:  I currently have no experience with putting matts.  I'm in the process of reading all I can about my options to make my decision.  It has been tough without the ability to actually test a solution, having to rely on others opinions and experiences.  I'm likely to order a few different options from Amazon that have free return options once I've narrowed down my choices but that of course would eliminate things like birderball that are not available via Amazon.
  4. Go to www.birdieball.com and tell us which speed green you'd want to test:  I would like to test the fast green option.  I play 90% of my golf at a private course with notoriously fast greens.
