For many of us, the "good walk spoiled" is over till spring. But that doesn't mean you'll be a duffer by the time the warm weather returns. For anyone who could use some fun at-home recreation (hint, hint, holiday gift), we'd like to recommend the Putt-A-Bout Par Three Golf Putting Green. It's a bona fide Amazon No. 1 bestseller that's currently on sale for just $35, down from $50. This is the kind of item we love: It's got what we call a high fun-to-cost ratio, promising hours and hours, and ultimately years and years, of skill-sharpening entertainment for less than the cost of a dinner for two. Now that's a hole in one!
At $35, this is the lowest price we've seen since last summer. So snap it up while it's on sale, because that someone on your list needs to practice their skills!
Why do I need this?
The Putt-A-Bout features a smooth, true playing surface and won't slide around on carpeted, tiled and hardwood floors. Just unroll it, plop it down and get putting! It provides three hole options (left, right and center) and even features built-in "sand" traps that mimic the peripheral hazards that accompany real-life play.
Needless to say (we hope), it's a terrific gift idea for the golfer in your life, but it's also a great toy for anyone looking for some skill-based at-home diversion. Make like a big-time executive and putt away while you're on the phone! Oh, and have we mentioned that kids will love it? Um...kids will love it.
What reviewers say:
Low price. Challenging yet fun. Playable by anyone. Is it any wonder the Putt-A-Bout Par Three Golf Putting Green has garnered more than 16,000 five-star ratings? This dutiful daughter scored one for her 86-year-old dad: "Pops has always been an active guy, played professional basketball and baseball, and absolutely loves golf. Haven't been able to get out and play too much lately, so this gift was perfect.... Super fun." She added: "Pops loved the idea that he can practice putting it in the comfort of his living room. We watched the U.S. Open and had a putting contest. BEST Father's Day gift ever. I just purchased two more, one for my hubby and his best pal and golf partner."
"Anyone who needs a true review from a real golfer, here it is," We're listening.... "So easy to line up a putt and give yourself a true feel and a great line. I slapped down a chalk line for six-foot putts. I wake up every morning and sink five in a row and go about my day. This has helped me soooooo much on the course. It’s made my short putts easy.... My friend has a $200 setup, and this exceeds it."
One shopper chimed in with this tip: "This is a great practice mat to use indoors. Not a professional putting green but just helps keep the dust off. We have used it on carpet and tile. Tile is better but carpet works. Great bang for your buck"
"Best Golf Practice Aid." trumpeted this final reviewer. "I've also recently gotten my 7-year-old daughter into golf. We have putting contests with this product and she absolutely loves it. We both have fun coming up with creative putts to make the other hit." But, he added, the Putt-A-Bout has upped his game out on the course, too. "I've already seen a drop in my average number of putts.... If you're on the fence with this, go for it. You'll be extremely pleased."

Canada's Brooke Henderson and Corey Conners are a perfect 1-0 when paired together on the golf course. They're ready to improve their decade-old record this week. Henderson and Conners were teammates on Golf Canada's junior national and both represented Canada at the Tokyo Olympics in 2021, but they rarely see each other as professionals on the PGA Tour and LPGA Tour. They haven't been paired together since 2013, when they won the Copa de las Americas along with fellow Canadians Albin Choi and A

Charlie McAvoy is happy to have it in his tool belt. The art of landing a reverse hit — when a player, usually a defenceman, with the puck initiates contact before an opponent looking to do the same — is fairly straightforward. The satisfaction in the immediate aftermath is also part of the package. "Look like you're going for the puck," McAvoy, a star blueliner with the Boston Bruins, explained of his process. "And then just stop and drill him." Philadelphia Flyers head coach John Tortorella sa

HAMILTON — Scott Milanovich has long been aware of the fierce support for the CFL's Hamilton Tiger-Cats as both an adversary and as part of the family. Milanovich joined the Ticats as a senior assistant coach in 2023, and later took over play-calling duties. But as a former head coach of the archrival Toronto Argonauts, he wasn't sure how he would be first received by Tim Hortons Field's most ardent fans. "When I came over to the other side and my wife and daughter were at the game and she said,
