  2. I have been working remotely for 2 years now, so I have a dedicated home office. I practice putting for stroke and consistency in my office on carpet. I've had some cheaper putting matts in the past, but they arent too much better than putting on carpet except for speed and line consistency imo. 
  3. the putting matts ive used dont have the with/against grain capability, so whatever speed it rolls is what it rolls and its just a faster version of putting on carpet. 
  4. I play a mix of private and public courses here in South Texas, but its normally super dry, so most greens are fast here. I'd prefer a stimpeter 10-11 private speed mat.

Richard in Duluth GA. 

i use our area rug or drive to a nearby semi-private club when weather permits. It would be nice to not leave the house, as I am 69.

Have used many at stores, like Dick’s, and indoor/outdoor carpet in my basement. Have wanted a mat for a long time, since I have been play for over 55 years.

if I could choose, I would choose the fast green as the courses I play are mostly fast.

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.

I practice at home a lot. Right now I use a putt out mat on the carpet. It slows the speed of the mat down really bad. I would love to become a tester for a birdie ball mat. I’ve heard nothing but good things about them. 
I would love to test the fast/ championship course mat  in any of the flag configurations.

Denver, CO

My practice consists of in course practicing and then putting on rugs. Just recently (because the rugs are a little uneven) I put together a metal yard stick and glued an eyeline setup mirror at one end. Works better than putting on a rug.  I had a cheap mat a couple years ago but it wore out and when I rolled it up, it ended up never flattening again.  

60% on course (during spring, summer, fall)

40% on yard stick, rug (100% when the winter comes)

Fast 11-13


thank you!!

Tom, Rockwall, TX 

I’ll either putt on the carpet or a roll up mat during the winter.  I love to hate my putt out for putting practice, but have no experience with a high quality mat.  

I play on what I consider to be fast greens quite often (Tightly cut mini verde at my home course).  Based on the information on birdieball.com, I‘d likely prefer the medium or fast speed.  I’d probably order fast based on what I’ve read, as that’s likely close to tournament pace at my course.  

Thank you!
