Rukket Sports makes some very cool practice nets for all sorts of sports, not just golf. I have several now, like the full swing golf practice net I reviewed a while back. Perhaps the most important net for my game is now erected in my house, a short game practice net. I’m a 1.5 handicap with the short game of a 27 handicapper. If I could get that short game straightened out, I’d be a decent golfer. Perhaps this net is the ticket, and a bunch of practice this winter.
The Rukket short game net is really cool. It has three pockets the balls can be hit into for accuracy and trajectory practice. The sides collect mis-hit shots, or shots which are not on a perfect line.
The net can be set up outside (first picture above), or used inside like the picture below.

The other side of the net can serve as a short game yardage marker. Below you can see several pictures of the net, configured with different numbers from 50 yards to 150 yards.
One problem I have with this net is the spikes which secure it into the ground. The plastic is weak. If you don’t push perfectly straight down, you’ll snap the spike just like the one below.
No, I wasn’t trying to spike the net into my carpet…
At about $35, this is a no-brainer golf accessory. Having a fun way of practicing short game in the back yard or inside the house/office is fantastic.
