You have probably seen me mention the SKLZ Accelerator Pro Putting Mat before but I finally decided it was time to get my own and do a review for you. This is probably one of the best training aid and putting mats on the market today. The best thing is it is portable, lightweight, and is not expensive.
This putting mat teaches you to accelerate through the golf ball during your putting stroke ensuring you get the ball rolling to the hole. The design of the mat has a slight incline to the hole so if you do not accelerate through the ball it will not reach the hole. One a putting green this would make sure the ball rolls about a foot past the hole if you missed the putt. The three spots on the mat are laid out and pre-measured for 3ft, 5ft, and 7ft putts.
One cool feature is the ball return. You can adjust it to feed the ball to whichever spot you are practicing from. Just add or remove the track to your desired spot. Another great feature is the rubber backing. This keeps the matt from slipping on whatever surface you lay it down on. Check out the video below to see for yourself.
An added bonus is the pre-designed spots laid out on the matt can also help you get set up square to your intended putt line and show you where the clubface should be square through impact. I highly recommend this for anyone that wants to improve their putting or even a professional that wants to keep their putting consistent. This will also make a great Christmas gift for that special golfer in the family.
