One of the keys for driving consistency is related to the height of the club from the ground. For the best players in the world, the club will be delivered at a very shallow angle and will remain at roughly the same height even after impact. This noticeable "flat-spot" is a major contributor to driving accuracy and consistency. On the other hand, players who have a shorter "flat-spot", or a club that enters and exits the hitting area with a dramatic change in height, will tend to struggle off the tee.
If you fall into the latter category, this is a great drill for feeling the body and arm movements required to create a longer "flat-spot". If you struggle at first though, be sure to focus on making just a few 9-to-3 rehearsal swings. If this is still difficult, try to pay extra attention to your pivot and axis-tilt. Of course, as you progress, be sure to add more speed and a longer backswing.
