Wellputt START 2.0 Putting Mat Review

Wellputt START 2.0 Putting Mat

Welcome to Golfer Geeks' review of the Wellputt START 2.0 putting mat. 

I'm an avid golfer, a 9.2 handicap on my way to a 2 (been a 5.6) and frequent tester of golf clubs and equipment since 2015.

I tested the Wellputt START 2.0 for a week. Wellputt makes high... HIGH quality putting mats with excellent putting aids built right into them. 

SummaryThe START 2.0 putting surface is excellent and it's fun to use (so you'll use it more). I LOVE that it has a 3ft, 5ft, and 8ft holes with a scoring lines to see how your golf ball is rolling. It's a great entry into Wellputt mats or any indoor mat and 100% worth a look if you are serious about putting better.

In this Wellputt START 2.0 review, I discuss my experience with the mat, its unique features and benefits,  as well as any customer reviews. 

Wellputt Start 2.0 Overview

The Start 2.0 is an excellent low-mid price entry into top quality putting mats. The surface is exceptional - like all Wellputt mats. The training aids built into it are the bees-fricken-knees. It's small enough to fit most any room, it rolls up easily, and can be stored in its original box. It's 10ft long by 1.14 ft. 

It's got 3ft, 5ft, and 8ft holes to putt too and scoring lines on each. I found this cool beyond belief when I started using it. You will WANT to putt on this thing every day. 

A mini- Wellstroke is built right into it so you can work just on your putting motion.

Why Consider the Start 2.0

You are not going to find a better putting mat for your home for less than $100. You're just not. 

Features & Benefits

1) Integrated Motion Putting Guide (Wellstroke)

  • I love the Wellstroke more than words can say. It is awesome and is my #1.a. recommended putting aid behind a top Wellputt mat. It teaches you stroke amplitude - how to masterfully control your distance with a precise back stroke and follow through. 

2) Alignment Aids & Scoring Lines 

  • You need to know what a square putter head looks like and you need to know how to set up square.
  • There's no better feedback than seeing your ball roll end-over-end on your line. The scoring lines reinforce this and I find it very satisfying.

3) 3ft, 5ft, 8ft Holes to Putt too

  • You will bury your buddies on the green if you get good at 3ft, 5ft, & 8ft putts. Don't doubt me.
  • Each hole has 1) an alignment line 2) a scoring line 3) a "Good" & "Bad" zone. 

4) Good Zone - Bad Zone

  • Never up Never in - You will learn controlled aggression and speed control by making sure your putts finish past the hole in the "Good Zone" and avoid coming up short - the "Bad Zone". Crucial for making more putts. 

5) Superior Surface w/ 2 Putting Speeds

  • The surface putts true even with heavy use.
  • You get the roll and feel of a real green with putting speeds of 10.5 & 11 on the Stimp meter. Think of it as putting down grain and into the grain. 

6) Lifetime Guarantee

  • AKA - You Can't Lose Clause

What's included with your Wellputt Start 2.0 putting mat?

  1. The mat and the box it comes in (KEEP the box for easy storage)

The Wellputt app has a brief explanation of the features of the mat, but doesn't include specific training for the Start 2.0. It's the most straight forward of the Wellputt mats. Meaning, there's 3 holes - with alignment aids and scoring lines to the holes, and a "good" and "bad" zone for each hole. 

It's intuitive and you'll have no doubt exactly how to use it. 

How to fix the rolled up end of your Wellputt mat

  • Roll up your mat with the rubber bottom facing the inside and the putting surface with graphics facing the outside of the roll. In other words, the opposite of the way you pull it out of the box.

Works like a charm.

Customer Reviews

I've read a couple customer reviews on Amazon about this mat being overpriced. Frankly, I think they're nuts.

The Start 2.0 is a superior mat and training aid. 

Who is the Wellputt Start 2.0 putting at for?

Me, for sure. And, anyone that wants to improve their putting. It's especially useful if you are new to golf and you want to groove a good stroke and become expert at putting to and through targets.

The Wellputt 10ft Classic is exactly like the 13ft version, but smaller... obviously. It's got more variety, and beaucoup games on the Wellputt app. It costs a little less than the 13-footer and may be just right for you. 

Our Verdict

Don't hesitate on this one if you are in the market for a putting mat. The quality for the price is insane and you will get metric tons of use out of the Wellputt Start 2.0.
