The nor'easter that buried New England states in snow last week need not have kept golfers from working on their golf games. ProAdvanced Sports has introduced a portable net for practicing your short game indoors.
When unfolded for use, the ProApproach measures only five feet by three feet and is designed to return the ball automatically. The ProApproach opens in seconds and is said to fold up instantly for storage purposes.
ProAdvanced Sports has its own production facility to help ensure quality control. The nets are made of polyster and feature a spring steel frame.
Originally, the ProApproach was called the ProIndoor, but because retailers at the recent PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando inquired as to whether it could be used outdoors as well (it can), the company changed the name to remove the confusion. It retails for $79.
ProAdvanced Sports also has a full-sized net called the ProReturn ($149) that opens in seconds and easily folds up for storage.
