TaylorMade 300 Series Mini Driver Revealed

The 300 Series was first released in 2000 in the form of a family of 300cc drivers sought after by players at every level.

In homage, TaylorMade has today announced the all-new 300 Mini Driver with design cues and aesthetics that create immediate nostalgia for golfers who recall the originals.

The 307cc head delivers a blend of distance, forgiveness, and control, relying on advanced multi-material construction to provide the optimal combination of low-CG performance and high MOI forgiveness for power and playability off the deck.

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. What it lacks in stature, it makes up for in speed using the combination of a high-strength titanium face and Thru-Slot Speed Pocket to deliver ball speed.

The 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 TaylorMade players, including Dustin Johnson, are currently testing the design for potential play at this year’s Open Championship.

“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,” Tomo Bystedt, Product Creation, Metalwoods & Irons, told GM.

“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.”

The 300 Mini Driver will be available at retail on 15th July, 2021. It has an RRP of of £369 and will be offered in lofts of 11.5° and 13.5°. The Mitsubishi MiDr ProtoTM is the stock shaft fitted with Golf Pride’s Z-Grip (47g).
