I would love to own a putting green like those sold at duffygolf but they are out of my price range. Does anyone know what can be used under the turf on a unit like these to change the undulations? I would like to build something similar this winter.

Thanks for any help.

Does anyone else have any info. on how to build a similar putting green? The framing is fairly straightforward but what can I use under the turf?

Thanks for any help.

Although I've never purchased anything from them, I've spoke with them on the phone and they are very nice and willing to help you out. They sent me some samples of their turf too which was cool. Initially I was going to build and outside putting green but I'm leaning more toward an inside one from this company: http://www.actionsportscompany.com/i...putting_greens

The Golf Warhouse also has some nice looking ones: http://www.tgw.com/customer/category...EGORY_ID=10511

this thread is very timely for me.

I had a 900 sq ft green in my basement with 5 holes that I drilled ou t the concrete and cemented in real cups.
I just got hit by a floog and had to rip out the turf and now I'm looking to replace it.

this is the turf I used. Very happy with it but I would like something faster.

Any ideas on what to put under it for some break? wouldn't you know the floor is flat.
I had thought sand but you have to glue the trf down and repeated walking on it would cause wear from the underside.

Any suggestions on similiar turg and ???? would be welcome

anyone know anything?

if you have the time and energy you could place plywood underneath the area where you will be standing to putt from and then bend plywood or use wiggle wood for the areas of green that you want to contour.

you could also use stiff foam from an art store of some sort and carve it into the lie that you desire and glue your synthetic green over it. just some random thoughts.. BUT, you wouldn't be able to putt from everywhere on your green if you used the above methods..

I was actually thinking about this recently and Im planning on building my own green in the basement. One of the requirements are that I would be able to adjust the breaks whenever and wherever I want.

Anyway, my strategy is to buy a bunch of stiff foam(like the 5"stuff) and attach the green on top of it. Then I would make the cup and a putting area out of wood and seamlessly attach the turf on top of it joined with the rest of the green. To adjust the breaks all you would have to do is put something underneath the foam.

That is the way to do it. I have one of

these that uses the same principle.

    • Why does Rory struggle with consistency?
    • I would say it depends on how the 3W distance works with the length of the holes he is going to be playing. If there are par 4s around 430 for example I think he would be foolish not to carry a club that enabled him to get there in 2. Agree however that flexibility goes up drastically if not carrying putter and with the tournament several weeks away there is theoretically enough time to get comfortable with using a low lofted metalwood or bladed wedge. Really would be ideal to know the course to help strategize.
    • i would suggest a more lofted fairway wood or hybrid since a 3 wood needs a good lie to be hit off the fairway.  If you are in the rough or in a bad lie, then the 6 iron would be your only choice.  A 5 wood might be shorter but is more flexible and adaptable in the types of lies you can play it from.  The iron for me would be anything from a 6 to 8 iron depending on your comfort and distance.  The wedge you should consider whether you can play a slightly less lofted wedge, like a gap wedge maybe.  However, the less loft you have the more skill you need in playing different shots.  Hitting a sand wedge is easier but it does mean most of your shots around and close to the green will be high lofted shots. The putter is the one club where I question whether you truly need it.  If you can putt with something like the wood/hybrid in your bag, that gives you far greater options and flexibility.  However, it would need practice since we rarely putt with any other club. In my case a 4 club choice would be 4 hybrid, 7 iron, PW and SW/LW depending on course conditions.  I would putt with the hybrid and use that for most tee shots.  On my home course, there are maybe two holes where I couldn't reach a green in regulation with those clubs.   Essentially long par 4's where I need to hit driver off the tee.
    • Are the 512 replies to this topic about Rory being overrated or has this become a Rory Catch all topic? If the latter, the topic title should maybe reflect it. Good to see him win again. His first since 2019. 2020 wasn’t his best year and an up-and-down 2021 so far with missing the cut one week and being top 10 the next.  But that has been Rory all along and maybe what spurred this topic: his inconsistent performance. One week he’s hitting it as well as anyone has and the next he’s out of it and struggling. His talent is undeniable, but inconsistency is keeping him down.
    • I'm not an expert but the swing in the video seemed like you did not bring the upper body around quickly enough. Is it possible your focus on not firing the shoulder right away is causing too much lag there? Swing is about tempo so too slow can be an error just like too fast.
