To begin with, the Perfect Practice Putting Mat is endorsed by two-time Major winner, Dustin Johnson, with the Collegiate Edition measuring 9' 6". This may be on the long side but, if you have the space, it provides an excellent set up when laid out in your home. 

What's more, for that personal touch, there are a number of College names available, which feature in their team's colors. These include some of the biggest Colleges in the country, such as the Arizona State Sun Devils, Georgia Bulldogs, Ohio State and University of Texas, so you can practice whilst supporting your favorite side.

Having tested the Perfect Practice Putting Mat before, we know the quality that is on offer. Beginning with the construction, it essentially comes in three main sections, with the mat itself attached to the raised, wooden end part with two holes of different sizes in it. There is also a wooden backstop and four wooden slats that fit together to create a channel for the ball to roll back to the player but, on shorter putts, you can remove one of the slats for even more convenience. 

Performance-wise, the mat worked well on both a tiled floor (kitchen) and a carpeted floor, but it's worth noting that, to get the maximum amount of performance from it, you must be careful with how you store the mat. However, it's easy to pack away and, once set up, the ball rolls excellently and consistently.

One final point is that there are various different lines on the mat to help with both the path of your stroke and the start line of your putts. These are the elements that really matter when it comes to consistency on the greens, with the putting mat also an effective way to choose the best golf ball for putting with, or to get a feel for different types of putters to determine which you are more comfortable with.

So, why not grab the Perfect Practice Putting Mat Collegiate Edition for under $100 which, we believe, is the lowest price that we have seen it at. If you're wanting to improve your putting, then this is a great option for you.

Taking up the game when he was just seven years of age, Matt made it into his county squad just a year later and continues to play the game at a high standard, with a handicap of around 2-4.

He currently plays at Witney Lakes in Oxfordshire and his favourite player is Rory McIlroy, despite nearly being struck by his second shot at the 17th during the 2015 BMW PGA Championship.
