Mike Bender UnEven Lie Golf Mat™ Review

Posted on 01. Feb, 2018 by .


J.R. Mats Inc. released their new review of UnEven Lie Golf Mats ™ by Top Golf Instructor Mike Bender.  Mike talks about how golf is usually practiced on a flat practice tee rather than the “field” that it is actually played on.

Mike Bender Academy Uneven Lie Station

Mike Bender | Uneven Lie Mats ™

UnEven Lie Golf Mats™ where developed by J.R. Mats Inc. president Jay McGrath to help Bender create the UnEven Lie Station at his new state of the art golf academy.  When we first tried traditional golf turf mats the ball rolled off of the incline.  We developed the Uneven Lie™ mat with a distinct grain to keep the ball in place.

The review shows how Bender uses his UnEven Lie Mats at his academy to help his students practice the uneven lies that they may encounter on the golf course.

J.R. Mats Inc. owner says there are many teaching professional considering adding adding UnEven Lie Golf Mats™  to their golf practice space and a lot of buzz around its potential benefits in the Golf field.

Upgrade Your WebCam and Video Conferencing Service to Logitech & Zoom

Posted on 04. Dec, 2017 by .


Upgrading my web cam as a personal Christmas Present this year.

I’ve had a fe meetings on ZOOM lately – if you are a skype user definitely check it out.

I had a meeting today and was so impressed with the audio and video quality that I had to order one for my self.

It should help with all of the golf simulator room designs and make our interaction more personal.

See you on the other side of the camera.

Here are the bullets from amazon:

  • Business Grade Hd Video Webcam: Full 1080P Hd Video At 30 Frames Per Second For High Quality Video Conferences On Pc Or Mac
  • Widest Field Of View: 90-Degree Extended View Plus Pan, Tilt And 4X Digital Zoom; Perfect For Whiteboard Presentations And Product Demos
  • Uvc H.264 Encoding: Frees Up System Bandwidth And Delivers A Smoother Video Stream By Putting Video Processing In The Camera

  • This business product comes in brown box and does not ship with retail software (e.g. the Logitech Webcam Software found in the retail product, for example in Logitech HD Pro Webcam C920)

I especially like it for business interactions because when you are on camera you tend to be less distracted and participate more in meetings. I’m the last of the group to pull the trigger so I guess it’s time to get hair cut and clean up my office…. or get a Jane Jetson Mask ;-)

Great family fun with our new Golf Practice Mat and Indoor Putting Green!

Posted on 24. Nov, 2017 by .


My husband recently received his Golf Mat and Putting Green purchases from Real Feel Golf Mats. He and our young boys are more than thrilled! They had them out of the boxes before the delivery driver left!

As with any online purchase, my husband was half expecting cheaply-made mediocre quality, but to his surprised, these mats are fantastic! He’s very impressed with the quality, weight and sheer size. He says the Golf Mat feels just like the driving range (but better — he can use his own tees!). I’m happy too because “Dad and the boys” spend more time hitting balls at home than away at the range. I love hearing them playing away in the garage for hours, having fun!

Thanks RF.

— reply —

Thank you so much for sending the pictures. The boys look like “naturals”. Putting is a great way to get started playing golf. Be sure to get them out side o the practice mat when the weather gets warmer and try the birdie balls ( limited flight golf practice balls ) when you get a chance – they are great for kids  because they get airborne more easily that regular golf balls and they make a cool sound.

Enjoy and please keep me posted on progress.

We appreciate you – Jay

Play Better Golf This Year

Posted on 21. Oct, 2017 by .


We made sone custom golf mats and putting turf for New Todd Kolb Golf Academy. Ver sure to check out the pictures in ur gallery and review area.  Todd also cut one of the custom sized lager mats and inserted is Swing Catalyst – that he can move it from side to side for left / right handed golfers and put the “plug” piece of mat back into the spot not being used.

My Friend Todd Kolb has a new program that I though you might want to check out.

New driver technology, smartphone apps, access to millions of golf videos all over the place….Yet the average handicap for golfers hasn’t improved.

So why is this? With all this access to information, training aids and new club technology, golfers just aren’t improving. I decided to really dive into this and come up with an answer.

Click Here to find the Why and How Golfers Really Improve

This idea, of actually improving players golf games, instead of just helping them hit it a little further, has driven us to create a new top to bottom system for helping you golf better.

Plain and simple, we want to help golfers take strokes off their scores like never before.

How To Cut Your Golf Mats

Posted on 09. Oct, 2017 by .


FAQ – How Do I Cut My Country Club Elite® Real Feel Golf Mats®

We get this question often when customers are building simulator rooms or want to make some custom cuts to drop their mew practice mat into a recess or existing tray system. If you give us a call we can usually make the custom mat size for you. About the only thing we do not cut are the optishot replacement mats because of the slots. We have had many customers cut their own successfully, but you have to be careful not to interfere with the simulator sensors.

We have been using the Lenox Gold Utility Knife for years and the longer gold tip blades. Be careful as these longer blades do not retract fully into the knife itself – so ut’s safest to pull the blades and store them inside the knife when not in use.  But that’s not difficult as these knives are the easiest to open – close – and reload. We have been cutting mats for over 20-years in the matting business so we have plenty of experience.

Jay’s Creek

Posted on 11. Apr, 2017 by .


I was lucky enough to get a trip to The Masters from an old high school buddy last week. It was on my bucket list and an amazing experience,

The attention to detail was evident in From the course to the concessions to the all important rest rooms.

We spent most of our time at Amen Corner and holes 15-16. We saw one group with 3 birdies – 2 chip-ins and a long putt. And Jordan Spieth’s quadruple bogie.

As some of you know, I have my backyard golf course – I was looking at the pump below to add a little Augusta inspired “Jay’s Creek” along side of my “Pond Green” for an added thrill to the annual tournament.

We play this green on holes 2 & 4 of the video below.  I am considering “Jay’s Creek” on th left hand side as you approach from hole #2 tee box. The green slopes down relentlessly as I witnessed first hand at Augusta.

I have purchased many pond pumps over the years and this looks like the best value per output that I have ever seen. It should be plenty to run through about 25 feet of 2″ hose and up about 2′ from my existing pond.
