One of the risks of hitting off traditional hard synthetic mats is that your fat shots will still fly and look great regardless of the swing. This is because golfers do not get the true affect of hitting behind the ball during a poor golf swing. The club will bounce through the mat and actually produce a not so bad shot. This is often referred to as the “drop-kick” effect problem that most traditional mats have.
In comparison when hitting off turf, you know when you’re hitting behind the ball by the divots produced before impact. When an iron impacts real grass, it digs in and scoops out a chunk of turf leaving the so-called divot. When this happens in relation to contact with the golf ball is all the difference to golfers trying to improve their iron ball-striking. For example when hit correctly, the iron contacts the ball before it impacts with the turf. If the iron hits the turf before the ball, the turf will interfere with the iron on ball contact resulting in the so-called “fat” shot.
Another risk, is the repeated impact on your wrists and elbows as regular thin based golf mats are usually placed on concrete. Resulting in you subjecting your body to a shock that over time can lead to pain, inflammation, joint troubles and even long term injuries.
Practice with realistic feedback
Unlike regular practice mats, TrueStrike golf mats innovative technology reduces the chances of wrist, elbow and other common golf injuries that can impact a golfers career or keep the average player away from the golf course.
TrueStrikes gel divot sub-surface solves the “fat shot problem” that hard mats produce. As they have a ruckable top surface and gel filled subsurface working together to approximate the feel of a lush fairway.
Golfers hitting down onto the ball will see a more accurate response of the club passing freely “down and through” the strike surface. So will be able to feel the difference on a “fat shot”. For example if you go too deep TrueStrike’s “ruckable” strike surface will slow the club head down as if you’ve taken a deep divot or “chunked” a shot. This is due to the strike surface absorbing and dissipating the blow for immediate and realistic feedback at the point of impact, eliminating the problematic bounce produced on regular golf mats.
The unique gel filled divot sub-surface is specifically designed to absorb the blow of a golf-shot as true fairway would providing the most realistic feel that a synthetic turf golf mat can offer. Letting you the golfer hit down onto the ball, so you can practice proper “Ball-Turf” impact which dictates the quality of a golf shot.
In conclusion it’s fair to say better practice means better results. TrueStrike golf mats gives you a true realistic feel so that you know if you have struck the ball fat, thin, or just right.
