TaylorMade Golf has announced the launch of the all-new 300 Mini Driver, which puts a new spin on the 300 Series of clubs that the company first launched in 2000.
Designed to be used off the tee and from the fairway, the 307cc head of the 300 Mini Driver promises a blend of distance, forgiveness and control, relying on advanced multi-material construction to provide the optimal combination of low centre of gravity performance and high MOI forgiveness.
Tomo Bystedt, TaylorMade’s Director of Product Creation for Metalwoods, said: “It’s been 20 years since we last made a metalwood this size. It was only natural to call it the 300 Mini Driver to acknowledge what the 300 Series meant to our brand and the game. We blended the throwback look with modern carbon, titanium and steel construction to produce a club the speaks to TaylorMade loyalists while delivering distance from the tee and the fairway.”
Off the tee, 300 Mini Driver obtains the optimal properties of high launch with low spin thanks to its low CG and mass that is distributed across the sole from front to back. It also boasts a high-strength titanium face and Thru-Slot Speed Pocket to deliver ball speed.
The proven corrective performance of Twist Face adds another level of playability, while a reinvented V-Steel soleplate adds to the low CG properties and promotes improved turf interaction and versatility when played off the deck.
A prototype model of the 300 Mini Driver appeared on Tour last month during the US Open and some Team TaylorMade players, including Dustin Johnson, are currently testing the design for potential play at this year’s Open Championship.
The original 300 Series were the first clubs to feature the current TaylorMade logo and helped launch the company’s modern era
The 300 Mini Driver will be available at retail on July 15. It has an RRP of £369/€419 and will be offered in lofts of 11.5° and 13.5°. Mitsubishi MiDr Proto is the stock shaft fitted with Golf Pride’s Z-Grip (47g).
