DSC04179 Stan Utley on the only green DS

Stan Utley former PGA Tour player, current Putting Guru and Short Game Specialist, shows the Only Green at The Glen Club.

The art of practice putting and putting aids has changed over the years.

While some golfers might still use a plastic cup with a metal pad, that runs on battery and returns the ball to you after putting, there are now new options that take practice putting a few steps further.

How about an expansive putting surface, that is covered with a surface that feels more like really grass. Something that is easy to set up, and allows for an easy adjustable surface so you can the undulations you will find on the greens at your local golf course. If you want faster putts rolling 12 on the stimpmeter, or something against the grain that leaves the speed in single digits. Well no there is “The Only Green” by Brunswick and now available for purchase to use in your home, office, country club, or at your special event.

There are multiple hardwood finishes so the wood grain fits with the rest of the room, there are six types to choose from. The Only Green can be snapped together and does not require any tools to be assembled.
