Test Yourself: The Ultimate Putting Drill

indoor golf putting green with chipping pad

Use your Ultimate Putting Trainer for this test! Take 10 golf balls and place them in a circle approximately 3 to 5 feet away from the center cup. Don’t leave the green until you have hit 10 in a row from these vital distances. Some days it will take 5 minutes and some days it will take 2 hours. Don’t hit them all from the same spot, placing them in a circle with a fresh pre-putt routine on each putt is the key! Artificially pressuring yourself to hit these 10 putts in a row will simulate the pressure of a…

College Indoor Golf Facilities – Now a Necessity

college golf room

As I write this it’s 29 degrees outside and needless to say, there won’t be any golf played in the Northern US today. Or will there? If you’re a student athlete at a school where the Athletic Director has had the foresight to build an indoor practice facility, there sure will be golf played today, or practiced at the very least. Colleges and Universities around the Northern United States are aggressively building indoor practice facilities which are proving to keep their golf teams sharp and keep their spring scores lower than ever. Recruiting Top Golf Talent Historically schools located in…

Golf Rooms: The Ultimate Addict Man Cave

golf room and man cave

Ten years ago the idea of a golf room in your home was almost unthinkable. The expense and aggravation of creating a platform for placing putting turf on was a bit much for the average golf addict. Besides you can just go to the range or stay late at your club on the putting green….but you rarely did and your short game continued to lag. How long are you going to continue missing 6 footers? We all know how important putting is to the overall score that goes on the card. We all know how important those little shots around…

Anchored Putting Rule

anchored putting rule

It appears as though the anchored putting debate has finally been put to bed (or has it). The USGA and R and A announced a joint effort to ban a putting stroke which utilizes anchoring against the body, above the forearm. The ban, or proposed rule change 14-1b, as it’s being called, is currently in a 90 day waiting period in order to listen to the golfing community and to be sure that valid arguments don’t exist which they hadn’t considered. At Pro Putt Systems, frankly we love the proposed ban (from a business standpoint) as it will cause serious…

Scramble to Make Money Putts

news4

We all wish we could hit a high draw 6 iron 210 yards. We all wish we had Phil Mickelson’s miracle flop or Bubba’s 360 yard drives. The reality is…we can’t and the majority of us will never be able to practice enough or build the combo of flexibility + hand eye coordination to hit the ball like a Tour Player. Nope, it’s just not in the cards. There is something that we can all do which requires very little athletic ability and many have developed this skill to be almost as masterful as an average Tour Player. Short Putts,…

The Best Golf Course On Earth – by Trump

golf course on the cliffs

Donald Trump’s New International Golf Links Aberdeenshire, Scotland I’ve had the chance to see Donald give a keynote speech on two occasions and here’s the deal, he knows far more about creating the worlds greatest golf course than he does about giving a great speech! Given the preliminary reviews and images of Trump International Golf Links in Aberdeen, Scotland it appears as though we may be witnessing a Masterpiece. The course will open to public play on July 1, 2012 If you’ve ever played a brand new golf course that hasn’t had the chance to grow into itself, you know…

The World’s Fastest Putting Greens

oakmont augusta logo

Fast and Furious: Who Has Golf’s Toughest Greens? Guest Post by Daniel Mitchell You think the greens on your home course are pretty fast, don’t you? You go around bragging about the latest double-digit Stimpmeter reading, telling everybody about that time the pro from the club next door racked up six four-putts, how you’ve seen guys knock 2-footers clear off the green. I’ve got news for you, buddy – you haven’t seen tough until you’ve putted the greens at Oakmont. I’m telling you, these greens are fast. (Obliging audience member: “How fast are they?”) Oakmont’s greens are so fast, they…

Indoor Golf Greens | Home or Office

Indoor-Golf-Greens

At Pro Putt Systems we are in the process of changing the indoor golf industry, one green at a time.

Testimonial So Good We Made It A Post

Although my daughters have had clubs in their hands since they could literally stand, last year was our first year of actually competing in the Virginia State Golf Association Junior Tournaments. It was a tremendous experience! We had an opportunity to travel, play some great courses, and as an added bonus we met some incredible people along the way. One such person is Brett at Pro Putt Systems! As a parent of a young golfer certain memories stand out. Last year at the State Championship I remember coming into the turn and my daughter was only four strokes back. I…

Pro Putt Systems and East Coast Synthetic Turf would like to take a moment and Thank our team and all of our great customers for their incredible support this busy Christmas Season.

How Important Is Putting

3 putt license plate, never 3 putt again

We hope, desperately hope, that we don’t REALLY need to discuss the importance of putting, relevant to scoring in golf. But you know us, we’re going to anyway! I’ve heard it said: “Half of golf is fun; the other half is putting” Says who! I was watching the Australian Open last night when Adam Scott made one of the rarest shots in golf on a par 5, the Double Eagle, aka the Albatross, aka freakin’ nice shot, Mate! Or whatever our friends down under say. Given the rare nature of the shot, they showed him walk all the way up…

Golf-News-Review-of-Pro-Putt-150x150

Pro Putt Systems was quite pleased to see the review of our indoor putting greens by popular golf site Golf-Newz.com. We had invited the editor down to play some golf about a month ago and we showed him our line of indoor putting greens, he was so impressed he placed an order recently and gave us a glowing review on the site. It’s important to note that we didn’t pay the editor to write this article and we didn’t give him a free putting green either. In the interest of disclosure, we did give him some free golf at Firethorn…

Is Your Green a Sand Trap?

sand filled greens

For years synthetic putting greens required messy sand dressing in order to function properly. Many people still believe that sand is required in order for your artificial putting green to function properly. Guess what! No sand here! Sand was great… in the 90’s, but here in the modern era you’ll no longer need messy sand to achieve great playability and top quality feel. The sand was required because nylon was used as the grass and the individual fibers were not dense enough to stand up on their own. In order to keep the individual strands of fiber from matting you…

The Pro Putt Systems team is happy to announce our sponsorship of the National Junior Golf Tour! Junior golf is such an important factor when it comes to player development.

College golf is making a big comeback and the experience that is…

Indoor Practice Putting Greens

gary player

In honor of Gary Player’s Birthday and his famous quote: “The more I practice, the luckier I get” When we set out to make the best indoor practice putting greens on the market, we took a good look around at the competition. What we found appears to be some people selling putting greens that have never really practiced putting? By the looks of the indoor practice greens out there, it really did look in most cases like the designer had never actually picked up a putter. Well, that’s odd? You put mini golf putting carpet on your indoor practice green?…

Indoor Short Game Practice Works

At Pro Putt Systems, we have been bringing incredibly realistic indoor short game practice putting greens to the market for quite some time. Recently we decided to slightly expand our offerings after a few months of research, R and D, testing, more testing and even more testing. We view indoor short game practice as serious business and we know our customers do too. With that in mind we set out to tackle other areas of short game practice outside of putting. We have to admit that our previous chipping pad offering was not quite perfect and it bothered us. On…
