Srixon 302 Driver Thumb

SRIXON W-302 £249

DESIGN

Srixon have got the looks spot on here, smart and sleek it certainly holds its own at the top end of the market. The large head promises yards and lots of them - always handy.

TEC TALK

The centre of gravity is towards the heel in higher lofts and toe in lower lofts to optimise trajectory and accuracy. The theory is that depending on what you usually go for, you should find something to suit.

PERFORMANCE

This driver is easy to hit offering a fairly low trajectory - ideal for combatting blustery conditions and the final yardage was also impressive. This is good golfers club that anyone in the market should look to have a crack with.

TOTAL GOLF VERDICT

The Srixon W-302 is long and easy to control. It might not be top of your 'must try' list but we reckon there's more than enough to entice knowledgeable punters after a solid performer.

Originally working with the best coaches in the UK to produce instruction content, he is now the brand's Digital Editor and covers everything from Tour player interviews to gear reviews. Neil is currently a 3-handicap golfer who has played the game for as long as he can remember. In his role at Golf Monthly, he has covered equipment launches that date back well over a decade. He clearly remembers the launch of the Callaway and Nike square drivers as well as the white TaylorMade driver families, such as the RocketBallz!

He has also conducted 'What's In The Bag' interviews with many of the game's best players like Rory McIlroy, Dustin Johnson and Jon Rahm. Over the years, Neil has tested a vast array of products in each category and at drastically different price-points. 

In his current role, Neil is responsible for testing all new drivers and is part of a team testing golf balls. He is able to compare performance between models, brands and generations. For 2022 he thinks the main trend in drivers is: "In a word, consistency. Whilst all the brands talking about ball speed (and the new drivers are certainly long), my biggest finding has been how much more consistent the ball flights are. Mishits don't seem to be causing the same level of drop-off or increase in the spin numbers. This means that more shots seem to be flying the way you want them to!"
