(6) TESTERS WANTED: BIRDIEBALL PUTTING MAT

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

Go to the golf course

Tried one to buy but most do not roll true like putting green..so never invested in one.

Medium speed is what I play most.

During the winter, and most of the season (with two little ones), I'll practice on my living room carpet. It's not too slow but not too quick and I have a hole to putt to. This has helped work on my stroke, especially with the little ones who love to play too. 

I have a mat that I can unroll in my basement but it's hard to use since it doesn't sit flat and I'm pretty sure it's a valley in the middle keeping all of the putts on line. 

I'd like to test the fast/championship, since I play a mix of courses, it's more difficult getting used to the fast greens than the medium or slow ones because there are not enough public courses with fast enough greens near me to practice for tournaments.

Practice is a mixture of the putting green and at home on a putting mat a few times a week. 
 

I currently have a putting mat similar to a perfect putt and a puttout. 
 

Would like to try the private course speed.

Currently I practice on carpet in the living room.

I've had those 8 to 10 foot skinny rugs with the hole on a ramp at the end.  Those never worked well because they carpet comes rolled up, but when you unroll it it always has bumps and never really rolls true.

I'd be happy with a medium or faster speed to test.  As when you're working at home more about grooving technique/routine so I'm happy with anytnig as i'll be better then house carpet.

mainly practice putting at course as I haven’t found a Matt that is accurate enough to practice on other than the thousands of pound platform. 

I would benefit from any speed but I expect the medium speed to be most beneficial to me.

I use a 10ft Birdietown mat and a Putt out pressure put trainer. The mat has a marks at every foot for a 10 foot 'ladder.' I work up and down the ladder every day. I also have a Skytrak simulator that I regularly use in the winter.

Aside from the Birdietown, I've used some of the cheaper mats that have a built in incline and a return ramp. 

If selected, I'd prefer to test the fast-speed mat.

This looks like a great product for practicing!

1. Andrew - Centreville, VA

2. Have a carpet with lines in my basement and a putting cup. So practicing putting along the line  is my go to. 

3. None at home. Only the putting surfaces as those big box stores. Always make putts on those! somehow it doesn't translate to real greens... 🤔

4. Typical courses I play at 10-11 on the Stimp. so Medium.

Thanks!

  2. Living in Florida, I am usually able to utilize outdoor practice green time during the "winter" months. Painfully hot summers, on the other hand, can limit outdoor practice time.
  3. I have never owned a putting mat, and have usually used the living room rug to practice putting indoors.
  4. I would prefer to test the medium 10-11 Stimpmeter speed, however I would be open to testing the fast green speed as well

  2. I keep my touch by curling in the winter.  seriously that is much more of a game touch and focus and fitness than you would think.  However a putting mat would be extremely helpful. 
  3. My experience with mats is basically hitting some outts at golf galaxy and some trade show games.
  4. I would like to test the medium speed mat. My course, while it is public cuts and rolls on a lot of weekends so it runs by my guess 10 to maybe 12.

Zach and Philadelphia 

usually will try putt on carpet or if the weather is warm enough, putt at the course.

experience using indoor mats at golf stores and practice facilities.

 

championship speed would be the best fit
