"Play like a pro!"

after months of listening to me go on and on about how poor my golf was when close to the green, my fantastic wife saw fit to buy me one of these. At first I didn't know if I should be greatful or insulted, but I guess the thought was there.

When you open the box, you get a net folded into a small circle and held with a strap. You also get a bag containing two ground pins, similar to those used for camping, and a strengthening pole that comes in two pieces. The net itself seemed to be well constructed, and being a typical man, I had to use it straight away.

I went to the garden, and removed the strap, only for the thing to open out fully and hit me in the face! It was now around two feet in diameter, and judging by my fat lip, it was quite sturdily made. The strap that held the net close, now doubles as the two holes that you insert the strengthening pole into. Simply push the two parts of the pole together, and put each end into one of the metal eyelets that are at the top and bottom of the strap.

The net is now able to sit upright on the ground, but if you were to chip a ball in now, it would move. Therefore you push the two grounding pins into the ground hooking them over the bottom circle of the net, fixing it to the spot. The last thing that there was to do was to fix the smaller target net to the larger circle. This is done by using three popper style buttons, which when put around the frame, hold the target in place.

Easy to set up, the net proved to be a useful aid. It will not make you better, but provides a target for your practive at home. You can structure your chipping practice around this, and make drills for yourself. Like everything else in the world, you need to keep at it, and you will notice the improvement that repetition brings.

The net folds away easily and quickly, so if you have to dodge in out of a shower, you will not get soaked taking it down. The positives of the net are that it is simple both to put up (and down.), and also it is very easy to slot into your usual practice routine, and seems to be quite sturdy . On a more negative note is the force at which the net opens, when you remove the safety strap. I see it being a bit of a shock, not to mention very fiddly for older players. Also the popper style buttons on the target circle tend to pop out of place when you hit the target. This means that you are constantly having to put them back in.

The net is a good addition to your training, but it is certainly not an essential buy. I find that using a hula hoop in the back garden is equally as useful. Basically the net looks the part, but as long as you have a target, then you can practice your chipping and pitching. Certainly the net is of sufficient quality, but I just don't know how necessary it is to own one of these. Still, its not too expensive at around a tenner, and it adds a bit of fun to your practice. If you are in the market for a chipping net, then this is the one I would suggest.
