If you're trying to cure yourself is hitting it fat, try putting a towel a couple inches behind the ball. Move it progressively closer as you get more and more confident striking the ball. Nothing cures hitting it fat like the shame of having to retrieve your towel repeatedly from down-range. Otherwise definitely painters tape, I'd hate to use a mat after someone covered it in chalk or flour or something. I don't really want my clothes covered in it.
