AcuStrike Golf Mat

The AcuStrike Mat is a golf training aid that is designed to give golfers immediate feedback on their ball striking.

The mat is made from felt which changes shades of green when it gets brushed one way and another. This clever design gives a golfer instant feedback on their swing path, low point and strike pattern when hitting a golf ball.

When making a swing or hitting the ball using the mat, the mat will be brushed where the club head hit, leaving a dark mark left that will show how well the golfer is swinging.

Once a shot has been hit, the dark mark on the mat can easily be wiped back in the opposite direction so that it’s a clear setup for the next shot.

The mat comes in an outdoor and indoor version. The indoor mat features a couple of velcro straps that can be secured to most flooring types.

The outdoor option is designed specifically for use on grass, with four holes in each corner for tee pegs to secure it into the ground.

Our Verdict

Golf is full of training aids that are designed to help improve your game. The problem with this is there’s a whole host of really bad gimmicks out there that won’t actually help you get any better.

In my opinion, the AcuStrike Golf Mat is not one of those poor gimmicks. It’s a really affordable training aid that will benefit a lot of golfers from beginner to intermediate level.

First of all the price. It’s not overly cheap, it’s not overly expensive. The outdoor version will cost you £34.99 and the indoor mat will set you back just £44.99.

That’s a very reasonable price for the overall value that you can get out of this product and when you compare it to the cost of a launch monitor.

There’s not a single golfer out there that doesn’t struggle with consistent ball striking.

Even the best players in the world won’t hit the middle of the club every time. That’s where the AcuStrike Golf Mat really comes into its own.

The instant feedback the mat offers when you hit the ball shows you just what you need to know about your club head path, and will help show why you may be striking it a little out of the heel or toe.

You can then instantly begin to make changes based on the mat’s impact position.

Without this mat, the only indicators of strike you can get are when hitting off grass and paying close attention to the divot patterns.

However, for most golfers, it won’t necessarily help them understand where on the club face the strike is occurring and will only show the divot depth and direction.

The great thing is, you don’t need to be a PGA Professional or a golf expert to understand this training aid.

The line markings on the mat make it clear where the club head should be moving during the swing path and strike.

As well as the swing path, the mat also does a good job of showing you where about you’re striking the ball.

For example, if you’re making contact with the ground well behind the ball, the mat will illustrate this and immediately show this strike pattern and you can make adjustments to fix the issue.

I also really like the way that you can just wipe the mat back in the other direction to get it ready for the next shot. Using the golf club, simply wiping it across the dark mark will reset the mat.

The mat is also very nice to hit off. The carpet-like design is very soft and there’s no vibration when you’re hitting the ball.

Of course, like with any training aid, there are a few limitations on what the AcuStrike can provide.

If you’re a golfer that perhaps has a path that’s 1 or 2 degrees inside or out, the mat isn’t really going to show you much to think about.

It’s the far more aggressive inside or outside swing paths that will be more obvious to see.

Overall, I think that the AcuStrike Golf Mat is a good quality option for many golfers of varying levels.

The level of information you can take from hitting just one practice golf shot on the mat is very good and can really help pinpoint where issues may be in a golf swing.

A launch monitor will also offer the most comprehensive data to use when practicing golf.

However, for the price, the AcuStrike will provide a fair amount of instant feedback which most golfers can use for improvement.

Final Thoughts

The AcuStrike Golf Mat has a lot of great elements which can really help a golfer’s game, with immediate feedback.

Plus it’s a hugely affordable training aid compared to other options on the market.

If you’re not keen on the AcuStrike Golf Mat, here’s a few other great options to help better your golf game.
