Normally practice putting: putting green at course.

In winter: putting practice on carpet or on artificial turf from DIY store. Not good.

Need artificial turf similar to real green.

  1. First Name and Location - Austin / Huntersville, NC
  2. How do you keep your putting sharp through the winter? - Indoor practice or freezing my butt off in the winter on an outdoor green, hands tend not to work 
  3. Current/Past Experience with putting mats - minimal. Currently use a putterball mat but it does not roll true whatsoever and is more intended as a yard game. 
  4. Go to www.birdieball.com and tell us which speed green you'd want to test - Would love to test the 11/12 stimp speed. Will be quick enough to not have stone hands but not so fast to where it is not realistic for every day play. 

Would absolutely love to test this now that winter is approaching and I am working on deciding between a few different putters to game. Thanks!!

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

  2. TBH, I don't unless I'm able to get out to a course. It's something I've wanted to do for AGES, but never pulled the trigger on an indoor mat
  3. I had a mat about 6-8 years ago, and it was worthless. The speed, grain and overall roll were all over the place. It was bumpy and soured me for finding something that wasn't $500+ that was even halfway decent
  4. Medium speed

The local course putting green is an 8 minute walk from my house that I will practice on if the snow is melted. I also have a cheap old mat in the basement.

I have a cheap old mat in the basement that doesn't roll that true but suffices.

Medium is what I mostly play although I do have one course I play 20% of the time that has faster greens, so if you need someone to test fast I wouldn't be opposed to that. I actually think practicing on fast is probably better since it will more easily show any faults in contact.

1) Eric Bruhn, Oregon.
2) Only when I get out to the course.
3) Terrible, too many lumps and bumps.
4) 12-13 stimp.

Would love to try something out at home, rough shag carpet is great for small chipping but too slow for putting.
Kitchen tile is too quick.

Aaron Patterson, Phoenix, AZ

I live in AZ , so even in winter do most of my practicing on grass at course putting greens (would LOVE an in-home option for nights and while watching golf on TV)

I have yet to be really impressed by a simple putting mat, but my dad had an artificial green at his house for years that I got to use. Willing to be impressed.

Medium 10-11

Current sticks are all custom made from top shelf component parts. Driver shaft Pured, iron shafts frequed, pre-cut weights identical and spined, iron heads within 1/10 gram of target weights. Love to test some new sticks designed for good players, but will be TOUGH to dislodge my gamers.

I try to practice at our course's practice greens and the one outside my home as much as possible.  I work through drills that many golfers use.

Not much experience with many putting mats.  I don't find them realistic to course conditions and hard to judge if my putting is improving.

I'd hope to test the medium speed putting mat.

 

Thanks

I plan to use my current putting mat over the winter to keep me from depression and to get better.

I currently have a PuttOUT mat and the PuttOUT. I have limited experience with but have use a few others at friends or an indoor facility.

I would want to test slow speed as I rarely play anything faster.

Eric - Bloomington, IL

I have a cheap Amazon mat I use in the cold winter months here.  It's been destroyed somewhat by my young boys over the past 2 years, but still gets some roll on!

I play a lot of municipal courses here in town, so I could do slow or medium.  It all depends on weather in central IL...hot dry summer means fast greens, but wet spring or fall they are slow!

Thanks for the opportunity.
