Is a really thin carpet a good way of practicing putting indoors?

Posted by: aaa_janitor In: Putting Greens

I have a sunroom with carpeting that is very thin, much like real greens. If anything, it’s even thinner and faster than real greens. It’s even slanted a little, and when I hit a golf ball, if breaks. Is this a good way to practice putting since I can’t always get out to a putting green somewhere?

I do it all the time and I putt on a thicker carpet. All putts are straight putts. The slope in the green is what causes the putt to break. I just work on putting to a target. I’m very confident when it comes to putting and the only time I putt on a putting green is before I play just to see the speed of the greens.

Most carpets are OK if you’re just practicing the putting stroke. But practice greens and real greens on the course can slope right/left and up/down. Also, some greens may be fast or slow, depending on how they are cut or what the weather is like.

There’s no substitute for practicing putting on a real green at your local golf course. Also, be sure to practice putting from the fringe. This is important practice that is overlooked by most amateur golfers.

Good luck with golf.

Ethan, putting practice of any kind is good for your game. But putting on real grass greens will fine tune your skills for the real thing. Keep the indoor carpet to get the correct motion of putting but get to a free green at any golf course.
