The best at-home putting mats still available
Though some states are re-opening their courses this week, the safest place to work on your putting stroke is at home. And though your carpet or hardwood floor is a fine surface, those little indents in your floor don't provide the best of putting surfaces. For a smoother roll, there are a lot of putting mats to choose from, including indoor and outdoor greens, fun putting games and mats with alignment aids for really getting that stroke precise. You can even choose your green speeds on many at-home putting greens to simulate more realistic play. While putting mats have sold out quickly, we rounded up the best practice greens that are still in stock and available to ship.
