Putting mats to improve your scores

Putting mats to improve your scores

Nothing can be more painful to golfers than to watch the golf ball go past the hole when they think it’s going to go in. It seemed as if you just couldn’t miss, but a series of missed putts took care of that. It’s humiliating, and the agony that golfers feel from seeing an eagle turn into par, to a bogie and then to nothing, has to be seen to be believed. Good putting is all being in control and having a steady eye, and that comes only with practice. But where’s the time to go to a golf course to improve your putts?

 

Not to worry, Putting mats are just as good and a great way to get your game together. The huge advantage is that these indoor mats allow you to play at home, at office at the time of your choice. That means you can get steady practice in everyday, whenever you just feel like letting of a little steam or you’re feeling down and out. The best part is that you can practice all your strokes on a surface that’s almost as good as the green course- come rain or cold.
