While this may seem like a simple drill, training "impact fix" for the driver is a great way to reinforce proper orientations and build spatial awareness. The reasons for doing this drill with several different clubs can be summarized by this anecdote:
Jon Rahm, former World No. 1, has an attack angle with his 9-iron that is 9 degrees "down"; his driver attack angle is 5 degrees "up". This means he can vary his attack angle by up to 14 degrees between just (2) different shots.
Ultimately, this variation in attack angle is necessary for producing optimal launch conditions with every club in the bag. However, if we do not understand the changes in body movements & release patterns that create this dynamic ability, we are going to have a hard time playing consistently with the irons & driver.
