First Name and Location: Stuart, Chandler, AZ

How do you keep your putting sharp through the winter?: In AZ, putting needs to stay sharp year-round son!

Current/Past Experience with putting mats: currently have kidney bean shaped putting mat with 3 holes at the end. It's decent but similar to the video, after rolling up, it develops lumps and bumps and just becomes too bumpy to use.

Green Speed: Slow to Med as most of the courses I play are public between 8-12 on stimp.

Putting is currently my weakest area in the game. Admittedly because of lack of motivation and tools to practice. Would be interesting to see if this would keep me charged to put more practice into my putting game.




the more I practice, the luckier I seem to get..

  1. Michael. Louisiana. 
  2. I used carpet/rugs or try to make it to a course because they are open year round in louisiana. 
  3. Not much experience. Only ever used the mats at stores which isn’t the best. 
  4. Medium

  1. Tom, North Mankato, MN
  2. Practice putting on carpet and just swinging putter in general to remember my grip and technique
  3. I have a very cheap roll up putting mat which I try to use but it's terrible because it doesn't lay flat and has creases and quality is like cheap grass rug
  4. I would like to test the medium speed if possible.

Winter putting is basically non existent around here. The carpets in my house are much too thick and the rest are hardwood floors. 

I'm 35 and probably haven't used a mat since I was a teenager living at my parents. I had one of those uphill plug in to the wall and it shoots the ball back out to you, you know what I'm talking about. 

If I were to purchase a birdie ball may I would choose the medium speed option. 

 

Thanks

  1. Cary - Palm Harbor, FL
  2. Living in Florida, there is no winter/off season, so I can practice anywhere.  I tend to practice on my carpet, but also spend time at the range.
  3. I've owned a few putting matts over the years. They tend to be a problem with handling.  Rolling and unrolling causes wear.  Also there is always a rut that forms and can be annoying.   I am looking for a good weather tolerant mat to put on my lanai and practice.
  4. Slow - 9- 10 Stimpmeter - Public Municipal

  1. Carson, Chicago, Illinois
  2. Pre -2020 I didn't practice putting in the winter,  but I just purchased a Birdie Ball Putting Green during Covid and it keeps me sharp! 
  3. Been an owner of one for 2 months and love using mine! It makes "golfing" in a large city more possible!  (My review of the putting mat I purchased https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uDPLSCCR9kc&t=6s)  
  4. I would do the slow 9-10 stimpmeter version. ( I already have a medium speed mat and would love to compare the difference in feel from one to the other)

  1. Robert - Bentonville, AR
  2. Lots of carpet putting and gate drills/distance drills
  3. I’ve gotten one from academy but it doesn’t flatten out all the way no matter what I do, so it’s constantly playing a break. 
  4. Medium or Fast stimp as I play on both, course depending.

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) Mike, Tulsa OK

2) I have a small 6-8 ft by maybe 3 ft flat putting green from Golf Galaxy in my office. I putt on it daily during the week.

3) Most are rumpled and none feel like a real green

4) Probably Medium since I’m at a private club, but Fast would work also.

I practice putting at home on the little carpet we have a round the house. I love the game and would definitely benefit from more putting practice. I would be happy to provide a very in depth review of your product with my honest thoughts and opinions.

4) either the medium speed (10-11 stimp) or the championship ( 11-13 stimp ).

Tim Hinueber, 63 Years Old, 7 Handicap

Living Room Carpet (not shag thank goodness) EVERY DAY 

Purchased Perfect Practice Putting Mat 9.6 Feet for all three of my kids, unfortunately they all have their own places so I don't get to use often

Interested in testing Medium 10-11.  I play on 8-10 different courses during the summer months with greens from very fast to a bit shaggy.

1. Ryan from Bend, OR

2. Putting on the carpet here in the winter is the only option.

3. We had a birdieball at the office where I worked several years ago. Have used the Skilz 3 hole mat and roll back mat at friends houses.

4. Probably go medium. We usually open at a 9/10 and don't get north of 11 until we're several months into the season.

Steve, Phoenix AZ

I roll putts on the carpet in my office 3-4 days a week. I also get (2) 15-30min putting sessions at the course each week. 
 

I have putted on a handful of different mats in the past but I haven’t found anything that felt authentic. Also, I’ve been burned by inferior product that, once it arrived, would never lay flat. 
 

I would be interested in testing the medium or slow speed option. 
 

If selected, I’d be willing to purchase the contour shims separately because I’m very interested in experimenting with different breaks, etc. 

Good luck to all...

  1. Pete S, Denver CO, home of BirdieBall
  2. I've had a BirdieBall putting mat for about 8 years. 
  3. The one I own has been scuffed by dogs running on it but I still really enjoy using it. 
  4. Would test the slow green speed as I mostly play at munis

1. Tim; Charlotte, NC

2. I purchased a PuttOUT mat this past winter and used it quite frequently. I was also able to use practice greens at a couple of the courses I play due to a mild winter. 
 

3. I’ve really enjoyed the PuttOUT mat, I just get frustrated with the pressure trainer because the ball never stays in the hole. 
 

4. either slow or fast; I’ll typically play either super slow public greens or country clubs with friends that extremely fast
