Protect Your Game – TrueStrike Health Benefits
The health benefits of any golf practice surface is determined by the quality of the playing surface. Traditional hard surface golf mats may look like grass but unfortunately they don’t play like grass. The jarring effect that occurs when the golf club strikes a hard surface is a major cause of golf injuries. The harder the surface the higher the impact stress on the arms. Paying attention to the construction, quality, and performance of your golf practice mat will make a huge difference in the quality of the practice – and the results – you get.
I’ve had 3 PGA pros and a number of sub 5 handicap golfers who have tried the TrueStrike mat and all I’ve had is comments such as “honestly the best synthetic surface I’ve hit off” ” and “my wrists feel better after 100 balls off that mat than after any round I’ve played this summer

Hard Surface Golf Mats – Unrealistic Practice
It’s extremely difficult to hit a metal / wood or hybrid club from a hard surface or Astro turf mat. The for this reason is because the flat sole of these clubs makes them even more likely to bounce off a hard surface, resulting in a thin or topped shot. This creates a number of swing problems as the golfer will tend to:
- Thin or top the ball to avoid the shock and vibration associated with striking a golf mat.
- Avoid commitment to the strike due to fear of the consequences of hitting hard into a traditional golf mat.
- Experience unrealistic and unrepresentative ball flight and trajectory.
When hitting off a TrueStrike these problems can be eliminated, as TrueStrike has a “ruckable” top surface and a gel-filled divot simulating subsurface, that accurately recreates the effects of playing off a natural fairway by allowing the club head to play through the playing surface as it would on turf.
No Shock, No Strain, No Pain
Unlike traditional practice mats, TrueStrike’s revolutionary technology mitigates the likelihood of wrist, elbow and other common golf injuries that can hinder a career or keep the average player away from the golf course.
The health benefits TrueStrike offer is because of its unique “fairway forgiveness” effect. Which means TrueStrike golf mats, play, feel and react like a natural fairway.
