Whether you’re a golfer or not, I think it’s fair to say that putting is a great way to destress (in theory) and kill time. A putter, a golf ball, and a coffee mug is really all you need to practice, but since you’re spending more time at home, why not invest in a golf mat? Instead of putting on your carpet or hardwood floor, you can actually read the green with these, and some of them even will shoot your ball back at you so you don’t have to walk over and then bend over all the time. So, why not work on your short game during this time? Here are some great golf mats to get you started.
FOR AN AUTOMATIC BALL RETURN
SKLZ Indoor Putting Green
This 9 foot putting green is longer than most, and more narrow than most. That leaves little room for error. But the best thing about it is that since the hole is on an incline, the ball will roll back to you. Better yet, if you make it in the hole, it’ll roll down the ramp, directly to your feet.
FOR A GREEN WITH SAND TRAPS
Putt-A-Bout Putting Green
This putting green has built in sand trap cutouts so if you miss, your balls won’t roll away into the ether. It also has three different holes to aim for so you can work on your precision.
FOR AN EASILY STORED GREEN
Abco Tech Putting Green
This putting green has two holes so you can take aim for one, plus it has an automatic ball return to make your life a little easier. But the best part is that it folds up easy, so when you’re not using it, it won’t take up too much room in your home.
FOR A PUTTING MAT
Sharper Golf Mat
Think of this as a deluxe mat. It doesn’t have holes, but rather, circles you need to aim for. You can easily judge how straight the ball is rolling thanks to the lines, and this mat comes equipped with a mirror, so you can practice your strokes and hone them to perfection.
