Not for high handicaps. High handicappers generally don't control low point very well; it generally happens behind the ball because of the weight being too far back and not having the ability to maintain lag. Most high cappers do better with it teed up because you can sweep it off the tee even if the low point of the swing already happened. It reinforces bad habits, but thats why it works.
