Dave Pelz and SYNLawn® introduce revolutionary new putting system

DALTON, GA — Short game guru Dave Pelz and SYNLawn Golf, the world leader in synthetic grass golf surfaces, have introduced a game-changing new Dave Pelz GreenMaker putting and chipping system designed to improve the golf game and reduce strokes.


The new Dave Pelz GreenMaker™ putting green system was unveiled this week. It is designed to provide a premium, packaged do-it-yourself putting green, allowing golfers to play and practice their short games in the privacy of their own homes or offices.

“This is a true innovation in our industry,” said Pelz. “The GreenMaker system gives the golfer the most realistic feel and performance in a product that you can build yourself in minutes.”

Putting makes up about 43% of the total strokes taken in a round of golf. A scratch golfer has about 30 putts per round and a 20-handicapper averages about 35 putts per round. The best touring pros average about 27 putts per round. Although the numbers don’t seem that far apart, when you consider the percentage of total strokes in a round, the differences are significant.

Further magnifying the need for a better game on the green is the distance left for a second putt. Touring pros average about 2.5 feet left on a second putt, while average golfers can have over three times that distance left.

The Dave Pelz GreenMaker system allows golfers to practice anytime to improve stroking the ball on the sweet spot with the proper blade angle and putting path. It can also make a difference with important factors such as hand placement, grip, ball position, alignment, body motion, and stroke tempo.

The Dave Pelz GreenMaker system offers an alternative for golfers who can’t always make it to a practice facility or who can’t afford expensive backyard systems. It also provides a step up from standard putting mats.

The system is ready to go in minutes and can be used indoors or outdoors. The greens look and play like the real thing and measure a “10” on the Stimpmeter. To make for more realistic practice, golfers can add and change contours through additional base inserts, allowing unlimited configurations.

The system offers an additional bonus in that each green has a fringe which allows golfers to practice chipping onto greens which hold those tough shots.

The Dave Pelz GreenMaker assembles in three easy steps. Golfers assemble the base pieces, unroll the putting surface over the assembled base, and then insert the regulation-sized cups. That’s all there is to it.

The systems come in four different sizes. The 6’x12′ and 8×14′ models include two hole locations. The 10’x16′ model has three hole locations and the 12’x18′ model has four hole locations.

The average high handicap golfer makes about 76% of putts from three feet and that percentage drops to the mid-teens on putts from 20-25 feet, so the Dave Pelz GreenMaker systems offer a variety of practice scenarios to help increase that valuable “make” percentage.

“I’ve never seen a synthetic practice system that is so convenient and provides such a high quality level of practice,” said Pelz.
