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.
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.

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!

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

We built out this space in about a 1/2 day once material was delivered.
We were trying to create a “tee box” look with the Country Club Elite Hitting mat. ( 5×10 placed between the two columns ).
And then we bordered it with Quick& True Putting Turf ( 7×13) to complete the look .
Now Roberto can practice driver, irons, and wedges off of the Country Club Elite ™ mat and easily step forward to work on his putting.
The view is awesome – including the Empire State Building.
Notes: We padded up the Putting Turf with colored foam play tiles from Home Depot. It took 2 layers and left the putting turf about 1/8″ below the hitting mat to achieve the look that we were after.

“I really like to practice on my Country Club Elite Mat – I can duplicate the results on the golf course.
Getting up and down better than ever. Great product!”
Enclosed are photos of me practicing chipping/pitching with my RealFeal golf mat.
The first photo is with me chipping from my driveway to a target in my front lawn.
The second is me hitting to a far target from my neighbor’s sidewalk across the street (my neighbor let’s me do this!) into my front lawn. I can actually move up the sidewalk to the left and angle into my yard up to 45 yards away! The third photo is me hitting to a medium length target, again across the street on my neighbor’s sidewalk.
I am pretty busy, but by chipping/pitching 60 balls a day (minimum – sometimes 90 or 120 balls) I can score pretty well on “up and downs” when I make it to the course.

“You are selling the best golf mat that I have ever hit off. I have attached a few pictures so you can see how I have my hitting station set-up. My golf swing used to produce a high shot that lacked distance because I didn’t compress the ball at impact. The problem is that most mats can’t handle the wear and tear that the average golfer inflicts on them as he tries to develop a swing that compresses the ball. Your mat is very different than other mats out there, much stronger with the professional construction that allows you to swing correctly and aggressively, without hurting yourself or ripping the mat.
Bottom Line: I have dropped my handicap about 5 strokes this spring by using your mat to help me develop a solid, repeatable swing that I can trust … How much is that worth?”

Subject: Re: NOT happy with my X.X. XXXX mat purchase
I had a bad experience ordering a mat from X.X. XXXX, and would prefer not to go through it again (product not sold as advertised)!
From: “Buck Endemann”
Subject: Re: The other guys mat I received was not as advertised – And They didn’t care I ordered a mat that they advertised to be 1.5″ thick and professional quality. The mat that they delivered was 3/4″ thick, and felt light and flimsy despite the high price tag. I emailed X.X. XXXXX and asked for an explanation as to why the product was not as advertised, and also expressing surprise that such a mat could command such a price.
Rather than explain themselves, attribute the inferior product to a shipping error, or do anything else to maintain my business or restore my confidence in their product, they simply conceded defeat and had UPS pick the mat back up a week later. Thanks Jay. Buck
And then he got the Country Club Elite® Mat …..
Hi Jay – I’m Very Impressed with your Country Club Elite® Mat.
I’ve had a few days to hit off your mat and am very impressed. The nice heavy rubber base does not slip and provides a good cushion, even when I’m hitting off a concrete slab. As promised, you can tell when you hit a clean shot versus when you catch it fat. The pre-drilled tee holes and plastic tee holder are another unexpected bonus. Unlike your competitors, your product shipped quickly, arrived as-advertised, and your customer service has been first-rate. Thanks for the bonus DVD, too. Keep up the great work and I look forward to doing business with your company again.
