Adding in just a few more minutes of practice each week can greatly impact your golf game. These office putting sets can range from around $20 to more than $500. Here are some of the things to keep in mind before you purchase.
Length and Size
Try to think about the length of the putts that you struggle with the most. For the majority of golfers, it’s between 3 and 9 feet. Make sure the putting mat or putting green that you purchase enough length to work on the slightly longer putts.
In addition, width is important to consider. The putting mats are typically much more narrow than putting greens. However, I like to be able to stand on the same surface as I’m putting; it feels more like a regular golf course.
Number of Holes
There can be anywhere from 0 to 20 holes on an office putting set. Most of the time, having more than one is a nice benefit, as it allows for some variation in the putts that you can take. Also, take a look at the size of the hole; sometimes, the smaller cup size makes it easier to sink putts when you get to the course.
Alignment lines are good for more analytical and meticulous putters. If you know of a problem you have in your putting stroke, the alignment lines can really help. Outside of that, think about using a golf putting green or mat that replicates an actual course.
The best putting mats and putting greens for offices will roll at about a 10 on the stimpmeter. The stimpmeter rating for your local course can be easy to determine by asking someone in the pro shop. If you can practice at the same speed you are playing on, your chance of bringing your skills to the course is much higher.
