Ryan - Portland, OR

I play pretty much all year - winters are wet but playable here in the Pacific NW.  Winter trips to AZ and CA also helpful.

Putting mats used - Putt Out Hole & Putt Out Mat, Delta Putt, and a really bad mat that never laid flat dont remember the name but it has the three silly 'bunker' holes beyond the raised hole section.  

Medium or fast mat preferable.

  1. Zach Lincoln NE
  2. Anywhere I can, hardwood floors, carpet etc.
  3. I have used a few artificial putting greens in the past, they are either too slow. Or they have slight imperfections that redirect the ball. Typically use a skilz putting mat at work.
  4. I would like to test the Medium speed birdieball green as I play typically private courses as well as a few municipal courses here and there.

a. Iron specs (Loft Standard, 2⁰ upright)

b. Driver specs (9⁰, x-stiff)

c. Dexterity (Right)

d. Lincoln NE

e. Handicap 0

Ryan, Abingdon, VA 

I practice at a local golf course. Usually the winter where I live allows for a few days practice per week. 
 

I have owned the standard 3 x 9 kidney-shaped practice green and I always enjoyed using it, but it was thrown out when we moved. 
 

I’d like to try the medium or fast speed practice green.

Putt on the basement carpet.

Previously had a cheap mat and putt return machine...that broke. Did I mention cheap. The mat was no better than my carpet hence my public course 6-7 Stimp carpet use.

Medium 10-11 Stimp

  • Slow or medium is perfect if chosen

I am happy to test as we have but one, maybe two weeks to play at 60+ degree temperatures here in New England so it will be nice to do some putting indoors when the outdoors is no longer available.

1. Alex-  Minneapolis, MN

2. I normally keep my putting sharp through the winter by hitting indoor practice facilities where they have artificial greens, or with an older out of date putting mat at home. 
3. Past experience with putting mats has been that I haven’t found one with the right feel and big enough size. My current one made by Sklz isn’t great.

4. I’d love to try something 10-11 speed

(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

Palm Coast, Florida

Normally, I have access to turf, but I have been looking into a mat to get better use of practice time, even if I only have 15-20 minutes.  Better than wasting the time driving to the course.

I had one made of astro turf about 10 years ago, it turned into a walking path.

First choice of speed would be slow, but I would be pleased to try anyone of them.

  1. Thomas - San Diego
  2. Can play/practice year round + PuttOUT with a generic putting mat
  3. Grew up with automatic return putting mat and parents have a turf putting green. Have a home mat now with PuttOUT training aid. 
  4. Medium 10-11 on stimp - since most of the courses I play would be similar.

stephen Cunningham. Madison, AL

I have a cheap wooden ramp putting Matt that returns balls at work and I have a PuttOut Matt at home. 

I have used a 2x10ft callaway mat that used a Velcro half circle as a cup. I have used a cheaper wooden ramp with a 12ft carpet attached and most recently the Putt out Mat. 
The Calloway may was ok but kept curling from being rolled up. It was very thin as well so any imperfections in the floor would influence roll. The wooden ramp used a very cheap nylon mat that did not provide a true roll. The Putt out mat is nice but I’d really like to be able to practice longer putts. It is also influenced by the wood grain in my hardwood floors and gets a “track” in the carpet from continued putts and that doesn’t allow for a true roll. 
 

I would like the Faster speed as I normally play at private clubs. On the website I only saw the medium speed available.

I am really interested in this mat. I would love to have the chance to test it and write a detailed review. I am very picky and the birdie ball mats seem like the best option out there, especially for the price.

  1. Name: Nathan, West Los Angeles
  2. How do you keep your putting sharp through the winter? There is no such thing as winter in L.A! But in all seriousness, I have a putting green at home and have around 5 drills I complete on it to stay sharp. Especially now, with putting greens closed at public courses. When I get a Country Club invite, I spend as much as I can on their putting greens for the day. 
  3. My Current/Past Experience with putting mats: I have a medium/low grade putting mat at the moment, this assists with practicing getting the ball rolling on the intended line, but lacks speed control with the quality of the material. As a young child, the old carpet at my parents house with a cup was the way to go. 
  4. Go to www.birdieball.com and tell us which speed green you'd want to test: Seeing as I play public courses a lot, the Slow - 9- 10 Stimpmeter - Public Municipal option would be the best to compare. Or if everyone is picking that option, the Medium - 10 - 11 Stimpmeter - Private Course, seeing as I have played some private course this year.
