Does anyone have a putting mat? Considering the perfect practice one but seems a bit of a hassle to store/get out/put away rather than just rolling up a standard mat, also not sure if practicing getting a good roll uphill is better or different than just practicing getting a good roll?

Also have started practicing chipping all the time, during work calls, having a cigarette etc. Feel super confident with any shot under 130ish apart from putter… I might just never learn to drive or hit long irons properly Laughing out loud

Found the perfect trousers and shorts too; lulumon commission, they’re unbelievable. The shorts might be the best shorts I’ve ever had? Will see how they hold up tho.

My mates got that perfect practice. It’s really good. Best on market IMO. There are some cheap ones with chipping and stuff from China in the bay too.

Just had a look at it and don't see the point of it as you're just hitting the ball straight. Getting golf club early before your tee off and practicing some testing uphill/downhill putts surely more beneficial.

I always putt with one hand when practicing. Gives a much nicer feel of the swing in your hand before you can cheat and use two hands on the golf course.

I've got a PuttOut pressure putt trainer and putting mat which I'll sell if you're after one

Ryder Cup weekend. Love this shit as much as the footy World Cup. Cool

Crowd going to be really hostile with it coming from Green Bay Packers territory. Just hope team Europe get to a good start and use that energy to their advantage.

What makes it the best golf tournament is the psychological battle as much as golfing one.

USA stacked on paper but that Europe team spirit is a huge swing. Gonna be an interesting one, conditions have been really windy and quite cold all week for the practice rounds. Some US players didn't even go out on the course yesterday it was that bad.

Fancy Daniel Berger to have a pretty decent week and be a surprise package.

Interesting. Not really followed the practice much but taken the day off tomorrow for the first days play. My only gripe is that Rose wasn't included and Poulter was. Both Ryder Cup legends who should both be first on the teamsheet for past heroics.

Bit mad that Big Phil is missing also, especially after winning the US PGA this year. Just goes to show the quality and level of consistency needed these days to be selected.

I got two birdies this morning. Followed both of them up with double bogeys. Evil

That's golf.

Just got back from NI, played CastleRock, Ballycastle and Donaghadee. Absolutely smashed it down last 9 at Castle Rock so ruined a half decent start. Some tough links golf but we all scored much better (30+) at Ballycastle and Donaghadee.

Really enjoyed this. Youtube is inundated with good golf players. Much more fun watching regular folk who just love playing taking on a Major Championship course.

Have just played 3 rounds in 3 days, my game is at an all time low. I’ve found some driver form so that’s nice, but my irons have gone to shit.

Anyone got a good source for recycled balls?

eBay for balls. Get a net and hit 25 balls into it as soon as you wake up. Builds muscle memory that.

Part 2 and 3 up of that video I posted. It's great on a 4k TV!
