Most golfers will agree that the surest way to shave strokes from round to round is focus on the short game in practice. However, the short game is one that most amateurs fall into two major pitfalls that can hinder improvement – lack of understanding fundamentals necessary to pull off various shots around the green and the lack of practicing with a purpose. An interestingly simple product which aims to help golfers remedy both of those issues is the Perfect Pitch golf mat.
About the Perfect Pitch
Teaches You the Perfect Setup
If you want to have a great short game, you must have a great setup. The main fundamentals of a great short game setup are aim, foot position, ball position, and distance from the ball. The Perfect Pitch Golf Mat teaches you the correct way to do this each time making your chip, pitch, sand, and flop shots more consistent.
Makes Your Practice More Effective
If you want to have a great short game, you have to practice. The problem with most golfers is they practice the wrong things. To be effective your practice must focus on fundamentals. The Perfect Pitch Golf Mat forces you to practice the proper setup resulting in better short game shots.
Let’s You Practice Anywhere
If you want to have a great short game, you have to put in reps. The more you do it, the better it works. The reality is your life is busy and you can’t always make it to the golf course. The Perfect Pitch Golf Mat let’s you practice in the basement, garage, or backyard as well as the golf course. More reps give you a better short game.
Using the Perfect Pitch
Putting the Perfect Pitch to use is about as headache free as possible. Simply roll it out and you’re good to go. The mat is intended to help golfers attain the proper setup for pitch, chip, and flop shots and it comes with an instructional flier that explains the colored coding on the mat and how to hit the individual shots. The Perfect Pitch is divided by a straight line at the target and an angled one down the toes in order to provide a slightly open stance. Additionally, the mat has red, white, and yellow lines for foot positioning as well as corresponding dots for ball placement (3 different dots per ball position to accommodate different builds). The yellow marks are for flop shots and position the feet wider with the ball more forward to open the club up, while the white and red are for pitches and chips and move the feet closer together with the ball more to the middle and just back of middle.
Although at its root it is paint (keep in mind, paint does wear) on a simple golf mat, the Perfect Pitch does what it intends to do by providing clear cut visual indicators that allow for repetition to ingrain proper fundamentals. Another nice thing is that the portability factor also allows the user to practice at home indoors, as well as taking it to the course and putting it to use outside. The Perfect Pitch is a great example that it doesn’t always have to be about the bells and whistles when it comes to training aids. In this case, providing a consistent visual aid is what makes it a tool that can work with golfers of all skill levels.
The Perfect Pitch golf mat comes in three different sizes for men, women, and children, all with an MSRP of $64.95. More information on the Perfect Pitch golf mat can be found at their website www.perfectpitchgolf.com.
