How can you improve putt consistency if you’re putting on a sub-standard turf that doesn’t have natural action?

 

NOT ALL SYNTHETIC TURF IS MADE EQUAL

If you’re searching for lifelike synthetic grass for a industrial or residential golf green project, you can’t grab a roll of grass from the district big box shop. Your experience will unlike what you experience at your home course.

When it comes to synthetic grass, you want a outcome in which a chip shot will land, bounce, roll, stop, and react as normally to an actual golf green. And to optimize your assets, you want a putt to break and roll realistically from club face to the cup. It’s not too much to ask for, professional player or not.

 

HOW TO SELECT A EXCELLENT TURF

One of the first features to look for when exploring synthetic turf for your golf green projects in Tucson should be the play properties of actual golf courses.


Let’s start with landing on the green.

When you land a chip shot on the green, you anticipate it to be acquired by the grass properly, bounce adequately, and roll normally, expectantly, in the direction of the cup. That remaining part is at your discretion, though. Sadly, many synthetic grass products can’t provide on that, failing to provide the equal bounce as natural greens do. Our Golden Bear product line is particularly and mechanically designed to be sensible in this context and supply 20-25% more ball retention than other prominent artificial grass products.

 

WHY GOLDEN BEAR TURF

Putting is arguably where the suitable roll, aim, and authentic golf ball action turns even more vital. How can you possibly ameliorate putt uniformity if you’re putting on a poor quality turf that doesn’t have natural action?

Whether you battle with cut-throughs, putter release, shoving, spin, or even getting better from missed putts, natural golf ball action is important. Repeating your aim and routine on a synthetic golf green that isn’t as adequate as the greens at the course could be more damaging to your game than useful. If you want to enhance your putting, you have to find a life-like artificial grass made for golf.
