1: What was your experience like making the switch?
2: Did anyone have to add more loft to the driver on the account of being further on the left side at impact?
I've always taught something similar to S&T (a one-plane swing with a centered pivot) and the thing is... your old swing probably produced an impact position with your hands back and manually adding loft to the club. Your new swing, regardless of what it is, should produce cleaner contact, period, and that'll mean having the hands more forward.
I too am concerned that yous ay you're "now" hitting balls lower with more of a cut. Unless your old shot was a slice, then I'm not sure that some of the principles of S&T are being applied as well as they should, and I might hold off on tweaking your equipment until you can get that sorted out.
What's the ball position like, how wide is your stance, and how well do you "move the circle forward" as they would say on the downswing so you can still hit out at the ball?
