Abstract
(EN)
A device is disclosed that affords golfers the opportunity to physically practice hitting balls on terrain simulating the terrain found on a golf course. The device has independently height-adjustable legs (10a) which can be adjusted to simulate an uneven lie of a ball on a golf course. The legs (10a) are attached to a surface (12) for holding the golf ball for hitting. A golfer may stand on the surface (12) or adjacent to it. The surface (12) also includes surface materials like those found on a golf course, such as sand, water, and long and short grass or turf.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un appareil qui permet à des golfeurs de s'entraîner physiquement à frapper des balles sur un terrain simulant un parcours de golf. L'appareil comporte des pieds (10a) dont la hauteur peut être réglée individuellement pour simuler une assiette de la balle sur un terrain de golf. Les pieds (10a) sont fixés à une surface (12) sur laquelle on place la balle pour la frapper. Un golfeur peut se tenir debout sur ladite surface (12) ou à un emplacement adjacent à celle-ci. La surface (12) comporte également les éléments de surface qu'on trouve sur un terrain de golf, tels que de la terre, de l'eau, de l'herbe haute ou courte, ou du gazon.
