Distance

Solid shots are in line with testers’ own drivers; output on less-than-perfect contact is consistent and respectable; a few guys get a definite boost in yardage on misses.

Playability

Boring trajectory leads to plenty of roll — great on firm fairways or windy days; easy to alter shot shape or add height simply by adjusting the hosel.

Cons

Some testers have a tendency to overswing due to the club’s overall lightness; one or two guys struggle to square up the big head; the nubs (called “vortex generators,” and meant to improve aerodynamics) seem a little gimmicky to a couple of panelists.

Bottom Line

Nimble and nearly effortless to swing, the D300 driver offers dependable forgiveness for players with slower to moderate swing speeds.
