Analysis Video - Driver Flat Spot

One aspect of the club path that is related to driving consistency is known as the "flat spot". With some of the best drivers in the world, we are going to notice a couple distinct characteristics of how the club moves roughly a foot before and after impact. That is, we will typically see the club delivered on a path that stays very close to the ground for a long period of time; this creates a longer "flat spot" and provides margin for error. On the other hand, players that struggle off the tee will have a path where the club head changes height rapidly before and after impact; this effectively shortens their "flat spot" and requires more timing and coordination.
