The innovative TrueStrike golf mats that truly reacts like hitting off the fairway, by letting you hit down and through the shot just like on turf

I have the Real Feel. They are good, but the thickness means you need to get a stance mat or platform to stand on to get level.

ALLTURF for a somewhat inexpensive mat that is of good quality. I have had one for several years now, leave it outside with no problem. Some will hold a tee. These used to be under the name of Monster Mat, but I think they are the same ones.

I make my own, which is a bowed, thin strip of synthetic turf to hit off of. 

I cut 2,  3" wide strips of plastic out of the side of a round bucket. I glue the two bowed plastic pieces together.  I then glue the turf to the bowed piece of plastic. Being that the strip is bowed, it allows me to hit down on the ball as needed. After each hit, the strip springs back up.  It's good for several hundred full swing, to chip shot hits off of it. Works great when used in conjunction with a net. 

The bucket cost me a $1.99, or less, which provides material for two complete (4 cut outs) strips,  and I can usually find some left over turf pieces at the carpet place for under $10. For $12, it will last for more than a year if consistently used. 

Just a thought.

I got one of these brand mats years ago.  It's amazing.  Feels real, thick, definitely holds a tee (no need for the hole and rubber tee).  I don't know if they are made the same today, though.

This is the one I have -


Amazon.com : All Turf Mats 48" X 60" XL Super Tee Golf Mat - Holds Any Size Wooden Tee : Golf Hitting Mats : Sports & Outdoors

but it was a lot cheaper then

yup,appears to be same.  It was called Monster Mat back then. I think I paid around $100 back then, maybe even less. Iv'e cut mine down over the years for various reasons. Now, I think it is 3 x 4.

    • 40-60 year old golfers, do I have a project for you! I was once-upon-a-time gifted a set of Founders Club forged blades, 2-PW. If I told you they had minimal wear, that would be an understatement. I hit two shots with the 2iron just because I had two. Otherwise, 7i to PW has maybe five shots of wear on the face. But that's besides the point.  When I was a 15 year old I had my first set of Ping Eye 2 and for.the life of me remember having Langert woods. Does anyone have a lead on a Langert Driver and 3 Wood? Particularly with a shaft I can only remember as being labeled the "Brush Stroke" shaft...  I could be totally wrong being that I do remember have a Founders Club driver back on those days  However I'm 95% certain it was a Langert head, with the "paint stroke" graphics on the shaft. If you happen to know of this club and live in the LA area, I'd love to buy it off you, after which I'll invite you to play at the club where I work and kick you butt with some 1990s ancient club technology...   Thank you.    Ben. 
    • Your hands move out and up rather than tracing inward. That’s all. A little of that is fine. You’re bordering on a bit too much IMO.  As I noted it does help you loop it back to the inside on the downswing.
    • As a 20 I agree.  I'm 66 and still want to lower that number, bought the book and this winter (starting next week) am going to practice and get a few more yards on my full swing shots. My short game and putting are not going to get much better or better enough to give me 5 strokes. Maybe I have drunk the cool-aid , but I have seen that GIR is a way better place to lower my score. Th alternative is ok-play for GIR +1-and live with 91-95. Its closer to par than 102  
    • Unless they are bringing in hazards, OB, that is the proper strategy to achieve that goal. Being as close to the hole as possible on each shot without penalty will help greatly in breaking 90.    No offense but I think ‘ realistic’ could be replaced with ‘ easier.’ If you think you have the ability to improve your distance then that is the best way to start breaking 90 unless you have a glaring weakness with your short game. Which doesn’t appear to be the your case if you struggle to reach most par fours in regulation due to distance.
    • vote was yes. My guess is that the non alcoholics all voted no. Drunk driving laws are like locks...they work for honest folks. If I drink, I will probably drink and drive...so I have stopped drinking. Once I black out all bets are off.
