As a golfer it can be a real downer to hear the phrase, "we're on the mats today". We all know that practicing your golf game off of artificial mats is no where near the real experience you receive practicing off the grass. One of the reasons that we do hit off the mats is because the range can honestly not handle the traffic that it takes on a daily basis. A simple way that we as golfers can fix this is trying to follow a divot pattern on the range. We at SilverHorn found this article from the USGA so very helpful to explain what it means to follow a divot pattern on the driving range. If you have a moment check out this article and pass it on to fellow golfers who you know practice on the driving range. Let's all do our part to keep the driving range and real grass in the best possible condition that we can.
