  2. How do you keep your putting sharp through the winter? I built an addition on my house with a 23'x13' room that with 4 cups placed in the surface - a country club artificial turf with a 4' 2" drop for putts with break.  For the muni course in my area, i would guess the stimp of the room is about 1 too fast.
  3. Current/Past Experience with putting mats - I have used the typical 8' 3 hole mats, and my above mentioned room with the artificial turf.
  4. Go to www.birdieball.com and tell us which speed green you'd want to test.  When I built my room, I was tempted to use the birdie ball surface for the entire room, but where is was a foam product I was nervous about the longevity of the product.  I'd be very much interested in trying the slow speed, which should approximate my muni course 9-10 stimp perfectly.

Thanks!  Brian

I'm lucky I use the practice green at my home course Willow Brook GC and because I live in Florida I use it year round. But I would like the ability to practice at home when I don't have time to drive to the course.

2. I putt on a mat in my basement 

3. I have the SKLZ Accelerator which is nice and helps groove my stroke, but I've been looking to upgrade. Been looking at birdie ball, big moss, perfect practice and wellputt mats. I have the room for a decent size mat, I just can't decide!

4. I'd like to try the slow speed, as I place it on top of laminate or vinyl flooring, and that always makes my current mat seem to run faster

How do you keep your putting sharp through the winter? 

Putting games with friends!

Current/Past Experience with putting mats - 

I have a fanmat putting mat in my own home with a stimp of 11. Also used a few at my friend's places, most are home depots putting turf.

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

Medium speed

2. We can play year round here because of good weather and little rain so practice is still on the course

3. My experience is limited to practicing on carpet or the course. This would be a first and I'm currently considering switching putters to a mallet.

4. Fast 11-13. I often go back and forth between two public courses, and one of them happens to host the US Open...

I have a cheap indoor putting mat in my office and an automatic return cup at home that I use on my rug (rolls about a 9).  On weekends I will go to my local golf courses and spend about as much time on the putting green as I do hitting balls.

I have never used a Birdie Ball mat, but all of the other mats I have tried are inconsistent, have folds or bumps that never come out, and require a very flat surface to sit on.  I have just accepted that it is better than nothing, but far for a reliable way to practice anything other than making good contact on the center of the face.

I would like to test the slow (9-10) putting mat please.  I mostly play muni courses and often struggle with not hitting the put hard enough, or blowing my puts by the hole.

I don’t really do much putting in the winter and I know the kids I coach don’t . I will stop at a local shop and mess around a bit.
Most of the putting mats I’ve used are a little small (feet hanging off) and have one hole.
I’d like to try the slow. I’d bring it to school and have my kids practice all winter. Thanks for the opportunity!

I work on the gate drill in winter made famous by Tiger to keep my putting stroke consistent.  I also use an eyeline mirror to ensure my eyes are over the ball and my set up is correct.

I use a 10' mat right now, but want something better to practice longer distances.

I would prefer the 11-13 stimp as that is most similar to the green speeds I consistently play.

Putt on carpet or roll out 10ft. piece of putting mat

I have at least 2 putting mats in the past but neither over time allowed the ball to roll consistently

Medium speed 10-11

Chase, old bridge new jersey

i have a large carpet in my garage this is good for practicing deep putts, i also have a birdie town speed control mat which is good for dialing in speed but doesn’t have any holes on it

the only putting mat i’ve owned is the birdietown speed matt which has helped my game. i’ve also used a friends putting mat a bunch of times when i’m at his house

slow speed would probably be ideal but a medium wouldn’t be bad either

thank you !!

Practice all winter on outdoor carpeting in my garage. Mostly work on putts dying at the hole.

Medium speed would work best.

Thanks for the contest!
