I’ve been using my new mat it’s AMAZING.
Starting last year I decided that during the winter I was going to hit golf balls into a net down in my basement for a minimum of 15 minutes per day to stay prepared for the next season. I bought a mat for $59 thinking that this mat, which was fairly thick would serve me for several years and give me a fairly true feel of hitting the ball from the fairway. The first problem was with that much use the mat started coming apart and I had to replace it the first winter. The second problem was that I could not tell when I hit the ball fat because the mat unlike natural turf allowed the club to slide across it. Your mat allowed me to feel when I hit the ball fat because it slowed down my club much like natural turf. I can also hit down on the ball with your mat without worrying about damaging the mat. That mat is durable. I’ve used it for a few weeks now and cannot detect any wear. I’m practicing better and more productively.
