Theory on this is that as elite players as a demographic get faster and longer, they're using that 12*-16* club type off the tee far more often than long approaches than was the case even a decade ago. Mini-driver type clubs are a more useful tool in that slot than a traditional fairway wood, at least for some.

 

yeah, I can see that. 

 

On my course, from the tips, there is trouble right at 310 on several holes. When they built it, it was probably out of range for most. Now, better players should perhaps lay up at 280-290.  It's easier to get home in two from 240 from the fairway than 215 from the bunker!

 

That's the sweet spot for one of these mini clubs.

Pretty much.  They seed the pics to gauge interest.  That's how the TM mini driver hype started.  Any self-respecting company won't let a competitor be the only game in town.  🙂

The reason Mister Ryan. Is that for the tour guys. a smaller driver head would make almost zero difference. But for us flat landers it would make it more difficult.

It would seem that TaylorMade, having made a few iterations of mini drivers, has settled on around 300 cc as big enough to play nicely off the tee, and just small enough to hit off the fairway for a player of sufficient talent.

 

The Titleist might be a bit too small, and the Callaway too big to accommodate both parameters.  We shall see.

Interesting comments from Marty Jertson on this YouTube video, where he talks about how he replaced his 3W with a 12 degree driver playing 42.75”. I also saw the reports about Tony Finau swapping his 3W for a second, shorter driver at Augusta. 
 

Makes me wonder if @PING might consider going down this route too.

 

I’d love to see all the OEMs release something like this to the general public. Seems like an area that’s really ripe for innovation, whereas the major OEMs’ fairway wood shapes haven’t changed a ton over the last few generations.
