Who thinks I should use part of the printer budget to instead buy this indoor putting green for my office?

I've got one of these and never used it.

u/vanfanel1car · 9 pointsr/oculus

Have you tried using those golf swing trainers? Perhaps that can be used with putters to play a full hole indoors :)

It's $5 more on Amazon and can ship immediately so there's no real deal here.

u/aushizz · 7 pointsr/golf

It's actually a net from PowerNet. Got both off of Amazon - here are the links below. Not too bad of a cost to get a couple high-quality items that I'll use quite a bit:

u/Rob_035 · 6 pointsr/golf


Get a long metal ruler from home depot, like this one. The ball sits in the hole at one end, and then you try and putt it straight down the ruler without the ball falling off the sides.

If you have any putting mat then the combination of a putting mirror and the putt out will make you deadly from inside of 5'

Amazon link. They jacked up the price of it after it got a bunch of attention at the PGA show.

u/slid3r · 5 pointsr/golf

Hi! I actually set one up. It's ghetto as hell but, here is what I did.

This little net is cheap on Amazon.

Then I went to Home Depot and bought a section of astro-turf for about $17. I had an old grommet kit so I put 4 holes about an inch in from the corners and grommeted them. I use old tent stakes to keep it tight on my lawn.

I stacked a welcome mat on top of a large cutting board and slid it under the Astroturf for a solid flat surface.

[Wiffle golf balls.] (

I use a lid from a storage container tub as a ball feeder, propped up at the perfect angle by an empty 12oz LeCroix.

Creative lighting and my 60° Mizuno, the little Bose Bluetooth speaker for the Spotifies and I got a pretty fun night going on in my little back yard.

The result:

Buy a monitor of some kind so you actually know what your current speed is, and also what your adjustments/improvements look like. Below is the one I use. Helped me go from ~108 to ~113 for my normal driver swing. However, that was more due to swing changes instead of exercise.

Rukket Haack Golf Net By SEC Coach Chris Haack 10 X 7ft

u/[deleted] · 4 pointsr/golf

I have one of these (short weighted iron) in my office. It's small enough for a full swing. I also used it to strengthen my left hand grip. I would hold it over my head with the last three fingers of the left hand only -- you can really start to feel the burn since those finger muscles are pretty weak. I also use it to "hold" the key positions (set up, parallel back, top of back swing, transition, impact, level through, and finish) for 10 seconds at a time -- like a really slow swing, which has helped improve the finer muscle strength as well as flexibility.

u/tadisc · 4 pointsr/discgolf

I got this last summer. I love it - definitely is a help when I can't get out to do field work. Very portable and easy to assemble/disassemble.

u/maplesyrupinmycoffee · 4 pointsr/golf

I have this one. I wish there was an insert to make the hole smaller than standard, but other than that it's pretty good: SKLZ Accelerator Pro 2.0

Hello fellow Minnesotan, the "Putt-Out" immediately comes to mind. It's affordable, works indoors and outdoors, and if it means anything I've really enjoyed mine. Here is a link:

u/urbjhawk21 · 3 pointsr/golf

Here's what I have and it is awesome. You will definitely know if you hit it fat.

u/scoggydoogan · 3 pointsr/golf

I just bought this off amazon. It's a little more than your budget but only takes a couple minutes to set up and seems like a solid investment.

u/nirajguy · 3 pointsr/golf

What are your misses like? You do a lot of great things in your swing...the potential is there. I think a few tweaks will go a long ways! It is a little hard to tell from the video but the only thing I would change about your grip is the gap between your thumb and pointer finger on your right hand. When you have a gap there you lose a lot of control over the club face.

  • Bad grip -
  • Good grip -

    An old coach of mine would put two sharpie dots on my hand kinda like the 2nd pic and then make me connect the dots.

    Next up would be your lateral movement away from the ball. I think some of your overswinging is because you have so much lateral movement. You want to be able to shift your weight onto your right side without having your head and upper body move so much off the ball.

    Check out Rory's face on....

    Compared to yours...

    You want to feel as if you're rotating inside of a big barrel on your backswing. You should load to the left...but your head and upper body should stay more centered over the ball instead of moving away from it. Hope that makes sense!

    My last advice, like some of the user comments would be to try and get you're club face more square throughout the swing. That will probably be the hardest change to make. Have you ever heard of a swinggyde training aid?

    It's cheap...really easy to use and provides really good feedback for someone wanting to work on their takeaway and proper forearm rotation to get the clubface square. Hope this helps! LMK if you have any questions.

Got it when it was on sale for $109. Easy to put up and down. Big enough to catch errant shots. High quality, lifetime guarantee. Buy it. You won't be sorry.

Meh. Money grab. Pelz is a legend in the coaching game but the guy sells this for $50 for absolutely no reason relating to the quality of the product. Hell you can get that thing for 15 dollars, and it'll do the same shit.

I'm not sure about the green, but I really can't recommend the PuttOut enough. It's the only putting tool I use, and I've never gotten bored of it.

u/Joehockey1990 · 2 pointsr/golf

Phil Mickelson shows his best drill in "Secrets of the Short Game" ( Basically, take 8 tees and place them in a circle around the hole at 3', then again at 4', 5', and 6'. Start with the three footers and go around the hole. Every time you miss one, you start over. So if you nail 7 straight 3' putts, you end up putting pressure on yourself to hit the 8th and move on to 4'.


Personally I wasn't a great putter so when I started doing this drill. I would just put until I holed 100 3' putts from around the hole. After I did the 100 holed 3' putts (if I had time) I'd try and make 100 from 4', then 5', then 6'.


Really, just repetition to get your started. ALSO, I use this: I found it for like $25 at my local shop but it forces you to learn to start your putt on a straight line. You can't push or pull the putt and still make it. I use that at home in my office. It doesn't matter where the ball goes, it just matters that you don't knock the marbles loose.

u/1lakzzz · 2 pointsr/golf

I have a setup in my garage and I use this one:

I'd recommend something like it - I was originally working with a little Callaway strip and couldn't stand the height difference.

u/Ez215 · 2 pointsr/golf

I was going to build a frame out of pvc. Shouldn't cost more than 60$ for 1 1/2 inch if I prices it out correctly. I got this coming Rukket Mat Attack Tri-Turf Portable Golf Hitting Mat (25in x 16in) because I was worried the carpet wouldn't match the feel of grass enough. But my original plan was to use some old carpet. Not too late to cancel that though and save myself almost 60$. Hell I even have some higher pile carpet for rough haha. I was going to put this on the pvc frame and then hang a blanket also so it'll last a while.

u/bcmintx · 2 pointsr/golf

I use a Mesh Tarp:

Fold in half (or buy 2) because eventually you will put a hole in it, but then you can re-fold (rotate) for a new spot. You will want to weight the bottom. The tarp is cool because you can see where the ball impacted (leaves a little dent).

I owned one of the top-rated hitting nets and put holes in two of them. I don't trust manufactured hitting nets for home use any more.

Also, get a high-quality mat, even if it's just a strip (you can build a carpeted platform around it):

u/cgr4217 · 2 pointsr/golf

I think anything with iOS should be able to use it, to the best of my knowledge, and any hitting net should do the trick. I have a Rukket golf net that I use with mine that works awesomely. I can hit driver into it and not be concerned about damaging it. The projector and screen can be set up above the net, I think, if you want to do the immersive simulation, but even the MacBook screen and/or TV would be perfectly well-suited for the driving range play, especially as you get more familiar with the feel of what happened with a shot. WGT is free to play sim rounds on, which is awesome, but the short game shot recognition is super frustrating, lol.

The ability to play rounds/hit balls in your house is super convenient, especially because you mentioned you don't get to get out to courses much, and the ability to learn in your own home environment without risking judgment out on a driving range is super handy for newer players. If you both enjoy golf as much as it seems like you do, I think it'd be a great investment.

u/Salacha · 2 pointsr/golf

Get one of these everyone should have one.

Pelz Putting Trainer


u/seaburden · 2 pointsr/golf

I had an enormous issue with going past parallel due to flipping my wrists the same way as you.
You're already tackling the issue with a pro but I'll share what worked for me. I tried out the Swingyde (link at the bottom) and it has made an astonishing improvement in my ball striking. Doing about 20 swings a night with this swing has really helped me make my swing much more compact and kept me from manipulating my hands and wrists at the top of my backswing.
Mark Crossfield and Dan Whittaker have both done positive reviews for this training aid that you can check out on youtube.

u/JasonDinAlt · 2 pointsr/golf

I have owned the Sklz Quickster ( ),$110 and the Rukket SPDR ( ).

I kept the SKLZ and gave away the Rukket. The SKLZ was quicker/easier to put up & take down (kinda like a "quick pole" tent), lighter, more compact.

I love it. The net has held up, it's big enough that it takes a tremendous mis-hit to miss the net, and it's weathered a few rains when I've left it out.

Down sides, it needs pretty level ground to sit still in anything over a stiff breeze. There are stake holes but I never got around to using those.

You should get a proper hitting mat. One you stand on. I tried the smaller, cheaper, "stand in front" mats, but you're always practicing hitting on a slope that way. Here's one at the MINIMUM size you should get:

u/Sundevil50 · 2 pointsr/golf

When you're at the range, hit balls with your club a couple inches behind the ball at address. This will promote that you have a forward shaft lean at impact.

Also, use one of these:

The Swingyde should ensure that you're hinging your wrists properly and then maintaining that hinge throughout the swing.

u/HardDriveGuy · 2 pointsr/golf

Inconsistent can mean long, short, right, left or not have the ability to hit the center of the face, and even with this information, it would be tough to say what you would need. It would also be nice to know if you are struggling on the practice range and/or on the course when you are with your buddies

With that being said, I might suggest getting Tom Wishon's "Search For A Perfect Driver" and perhaps a Swing Radar and impact labels to find out your real speed and impact on club face when you are not in front of other people. Tom is the industry's myth buster, and he points out that "stiff" shaft is often wildly different from company to company. He points out that most people are hitting clubs longer than the pro's use, with swing speeds much, much slower. Generally, he suggests short drivers, higher lofts (11-13 for most men), and true bend analysis of shaft (which only a handful of people do).

Once you have this gear, you can do some nice analysis outside of a golf shop, which is very artificial. Real world data should be more helpful. Let me explain how I use this data.

I often pack my Swing Radar down to the range, and I have impact labels for myself and my son (although my son is consuming most of the labels). As much as it bugs me, I normally swing 85 on the range when I'm working through a bunch of balls, and I'm guessing around 90 on the course (because of the distance). If I really crank the juice, I get into the high 90s or low 100s.

My problem is that I'm very accurate with my 80MPH swing, but I can't help but want to show off on the course with my 100MPH swing. The problem is that the 100MPH swing is wildly inconsistent. My sons inconsistency is based around the fact that he tends to miss the center of the driver. Thus he is using impact mark labels to fix this fault.

After reading Tom's book, I am convinced that I should be playing with a driver no longer than 44 inches (I'm around 6' 2"), and he points out that Tiger was using a 44.5 inch driver. When he tests people, almost all of them hit longer with a shorter driver. However, I notice that I tend to hook when I choke up, and I'm trying to work on my 3 iron right now, so length will need to wait.

Finally, I have spent a ton of time hitting with a Whippy Driver. This is driver with a shaft that like a wet noodle and almost hits you when you are at the top. I used to play rounds with the driver, but my friends complained that it was simply freaking them out that any driver would bend so much. (And eventually the shaft broke from number of impacts.) However, this driver forces a very smooth style. If you are really committed to fixing stuff, try hitting this exclusively for a few months.

u/YGSdaley · 2 pointsr/golf

This one: (

I liked it because of the the 3 different spots to hit from, plus the lines to keep me straight.

u/kchiconnect · 2 pointsr/golf

Interested to see responses. I was gifted a putter a few years ago and it's the only club in my bag I didn't pick out for myself. Been contemplating a fitting and a new putter for 2018.

Kansas City Golf Show is next weekend so I've already prepped the wife to not be surprised to see a $200-$400 charge on the ol' card. And by prepped I mean I'm just going to do it and ask for forgiveness later.

edit: I did get a putting mirror which helped me a lot with my setup. I never realized how far I was leaning over the ball until I used one of those. You can probably find one cheaper/better/whatever but this is the one I got

u/wutzhapnin · 2 pointsr/golf

I use only real balls. I find any ball that is not real but made of foam or whatever to be kinda like hitting a marshmallow. Sure, you can crush it but it just doesn't feel right.

That said, make sure your net setup has redundancy (sides and back), you'll s**** at least one ball every once in a while, and ALL nets can and likely will get a hole in them. Or, just stop caring about the garage walls and the cars and such trivial things!

Last, don't skimp too much on the mat. But if you're on a tight budget, you can buy a high-quality mat strip like this and build a platform (mine was plywood+old carpet) around it: Real Feel Golf Mat 10X30 strip


u/Jesse_berger · 2 pointsr/golf

Like shit. Went to the local par 3 with atleast 20 balls to lose. I sure did a fine job losing them in the water.

Bought new irons then went to the driving range Saturday and Sunday. I sucked, however I can make good contact at home and into my net.

I have this mat and I hit from the mat which is a few inches above my feet. Could that be a reason? I'm too used to hitting up on the ball that when I'm level with a ball I mishit?

u/conscwp · 1 pointr/Dallas

I'm guessing the one they are planning on putting in the middle of Terminal D is going to be a virtual reality driving range (similar to MSP's "Virtual driving range and putting green")? Because there is absolutely nowhere in Terminal D that could feasibly contain even the tiniest of greens, unless we're talking about one of these...

Swing Speed Radar

I recently bought this and it's very accurate. If you do decide to get it, just put it at a 45 degree in front of you 6-10 inches away from the club. If you swing without a wiffle ball or an actual ball the speed will come up 5-10% slower than actual.

u/BlechBOX · 1 pointr/golf

Keeping your head directly over the ball, keeping your head still throughout the stroke, making contact in the center if the face, and making sure my stroke did not arc on short putts. Many pros use them. You can get one on ebay for about 30 bucks and it will help you more than getting a new putter ever could. It also works great at home while watching tv. If you can't tell I highly recommend getting one. I also recommend getting a seemore putter if you really want to make all your short putts. Ernie els is a perfect example of switching to a seemore and going from the infamous 6 putt to leaning the tour in strokes gained putting over the last 4 or so weeks.

edit: see here for a link on amazon.

u/_edd · 1 pointr/golf

> The mat probably cost 500

$80. Granted his does look thicker/nice.

> the screen probably cost 1k

Looks like its a few panels of some cheap building material on the front screen. The back screen isn't particularly nice either.

Whole thing probably cost a little more than $1000, but not a ton. Major factor here is how much he chose to spend on the projector and if he did the frame himself/has a guy vs if he had to find a shop to make it for him.

u/IndustriousMadman · 1 pointr/germany

Can't you just show up and read a book or something? Or better yet, bring in one of these

u/Tallpaul07 · 1 pointr/golf

I ordered the mat below last week. Have been hitting off of it in to a net for a few days, and it's pretty fantastic. It's got 'fairway', 'rough', and a thicker fairway material that allows you to actually tee up a ball with a real tee. Highly recommended. Stays in place when you hit off of it, doesn't get green shit all over the soles of your clubs.

Don't bother- buy a putt out for about $30 and it'll do the same thing for a fraction. My putting has improved by almost .75 putts per round since I started using it. I know that sounds like bs, but I can send the Arccos screenshots if you want.
