I'm buying one soon and was wondering if anyone could share your experience with the size you bought and if you wish you bought a bigger one? I read the info on the website about needing a 3x5, 4x5, or 5x5 for swinging drivers, my initial thought was to get the 4x5 but now I'm considering getting the 5x5 just to be safe and have plenty of room.

Are you talking about Real Feel mats? I’ve got two and they don’t wear very fast, so go with the smallest that fits your budget. I made a separate stand because standing on the mat is a bit squishy. Mine are 20 x 30” but I don’t think they have that size anymore. Also, I moved the hole for the rubber tee. I just drilled a hole to fit.

Yep the CCE Real Feel are the ones I'm talking about. Sounds like you got the "strips" and they still carry those in various sizes.

I also made a platform and bought the 10x30 inch strip to place in it. The first strip lasted a year and a half with thousands of very steep swings into it. I wore a channel in the center of it about 1/2" deep. My current strip is a little over a year old and still going strong.

I have a 4 x 5 mat of another brand and it seems sufficient for hitting drives with no issues.

For mat longevity through, a 5 x 5 mat that can either receive tees or has 4 tee stations can be rotated to move the wear around, and could last you double the amount of the 4 x 5 mat that can only be rotated in one direction.

Take measuring tape and draw out a box with some chalk on some concrete. Then, swing driver and see what space is enough for you. 
 

For what it’s worth, I’m 6’1 and own the 4x5 country club elite. I’ve had since 2016. No issues.

    • Day 69, August 2, 2021 More work on shortening my backswing. I don’t want to even get to hands to right shoulder… at least feeling like that.
    • I'm sure if you look at about two years ago on this site, I mentioned somewhere that after having my first ever sub-80 round (a nice 77 in a tournament!), I failed to break 90 for I think two months.  These things happen. Can't hit an iron?  What's the longest swing you can make with your PW and hit a good result?  If the answer is a chip, go hit some chips and, after some good ones, expand into pitches.  Similar with pitches into 3/4 shots, etc.   This is very likely something you can work out by going back to what you do well.  
    • First range session after another productive session with @iacas.  Working on getting my weight forward and also feel like my front forearm is turning to close the clubface.  Did work with my 6I, Driver, 3W, and 4H and hit all clubs really well with ball flights that overall I wasn't unhappy with.  Playing tomorrow and Wednesday so we'll see how we do.    
    • Simplify. Hit some solid chips. Or punches. Build from there.
