This handy portable practice mat will help you fine

Jun 04, 2023

You can practice your short game on the go.


Welcome to Gimme That, a column where we’ll highlight one notable item we think you might like. Whether it's an article of clothing, an intriguing electronic device or anything in between, we want to share these items with you because they’ve generated a bit of chatter by our water cooler (or, these days, on our Slack channel). So sit back, scroll down and keep up with the latest gear golf has to offer.

Chipping in your backyard is one way to improve your game, but that type of short-game practice doesn't exactly replicate the types of lies you’ll see on the golf course. We aren't always chipping from the rough, and those tight lies around greens are sometimes the most menacing chip shots. That's why you need to practice them.

Enter the Rukket Mat Attack Tri-Turf XL, a portable golf mat that gives you two different artificial grass lengths to practice off. Throw this in your basement, garage, in your backyard or right on the patio — it's a consistent practice tool that will pay off big time in the future.

The mat is 25×16 inches with 16-millimeter tee, fairway turf and 35-millimeter rough turf. The base has 2 millimeters of rubber underneath so it won't slide, but it's also subtle enough that the teeing area won't be high above your feet. Better yet, this mat allows you to put actual tees into it.
