First released in 2000, the 300cc family of drivers was sought after by players at every level and remain a cultish figure in the world of golf club enthusiasts. 

TaylorMade's new Mini 300 Driver reinvents the iconic 30- Series which launched in 2000.

In homage, TaylorMade have built the all-new 300 Mini Driver with nostalgic design cues and aesthetics.

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.

The TaylorMade Mini 300 Driver can be used from the tee or fairway.

TaylorMade say the unique design provides power off the tee and playability off-the-deck.

“It’s been 20 years since we last made a metalwood this size,” said Tomo Bystedt, TaylorMade Product Creation, Metalwoods & Irons.

“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 the 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 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.

Phil Mickelson had a prototype model of the 300 Mini Driver in his bag at last month’s US Open and several Team TaylorMade athletes, including Dustin Johnson, are currently testing the design with a view to putting it in play at The Open Championship at Royal St George’s.

The original 300 Series were the first clubs to brandish the current TaylorMade logo and helped launch the company’s modern era. TaylorMade say the 300 Mini Driver takes the brand’s clubs of this size to the next level of distance, forgiveness, and playability.

Available in 11.5º and 13.5º (13.5º in right-hand only), the Mini 300 driver comes with a Mitsubishi MiDr Proto shaft and Golf Pride Z-Grip. It is available from July 15 with an RRP of £369.
