Top-quality artificial turf in Dallas is perfect for putting greens. It comes in variants designed to provide the same ball roll as commercial courses. It features superb durability and weather resistance and is a breeze to maintain.

Because it’s hypoallergenic and doesn’t require chemical treatments, it’s a safer play space than its natural turf-covered counterparts. But most of all, practicing on artificial grass putting greens is the best way to keep your short game tournament ready!

How to Improve Your Short Game on Artificial Turf Putting Greens

Short game improvement is all directional accuracy and being good at judging distance. A backyard putting green creates the perfect practice conditions for these skills:

  • Maintain the mechanics of your swing.

    Don’t stop or diminish your swing on pitches or pitch shots, which involve hitting the ball a lesser distance. Pitches typically happen farther away from the green, have more spin and require a high trajectory to pull off.

    Make sure you begin with a good setup. Keep the handle relatively close to you on the backswing, twist your body, then turn toward the target with your hips level at the end. Don’t worry about damaging your synthetic grass in Dallas with the impact of your attempts. Artificial turf is tough enough to withstand the force behind your swings.

  • Use your arms when you pitch.

    Minimize wrist action and employ your arms more to reduce the chances of hitting your pitch shots fat or thin. Fat shots occur when your club bottom hits the ground first, while thin shots happen when you catch the ball on the upswing. These shots are typically among golfers who instinctively aim to lift the ball.

    As you swing, preserve the “V” that your arms form when you sole the club. Keep the clubface loft that you set up at the address. You’re doing it right if there are minimal forearm rotations and hand actions.

  • Don’t grip the club hard for chip shots.

    Soft hands are the key to skillful chipping. Tiger Woods recommends using “light grip pressure,” approximately four on a scale of 1-10, to keep your arms loose and your hands soft. Ensure ball-first contact with the basic chipping technique ball on the tail end of a slightly open stance.

    Practice your chips as often as you can on top of your artificial grass in Dallas, TX to master them. Integrate obstacles into your design to change up the difficulty level of your course.
