First, I want to be perfectly clear that this is NOT intended to be a debate over any one type of swing over another. There has been too much discussion on that already and often controversial.
Recently, I was experimenting with SnT and picked it up fairly easily. Just as I am usually able to replicate just about any swing reasonably well. I can utilize an upright, flying elbow, or a flatter, elbows held close to the torso with about the same degree of accuracy. Heck, just for fun, I was even able to copy Trevino's figure eight (not that I should even have been trying).
Anyway, my question is simply this: Would it be harmful to adopt the new (to me) swing in fear of loss of muscle memory of a swing I have been using for a long time if I used the new swing exclusively? I have a fairly good swing already, but am always open to new ideas. The SnT seems to give me a bit more control and enables me to hit more fairways without a lot of distance loss. The last round, I used it the entire round and although I seemed to lose a little distance on drives, I gained some on iron play. The distance loss in drives may have nothing to do with the swing change, as this happens from one round to another anyway. I also used different balls i.e. Taylor Made XD, vs Taylor Made TP3, vs Bridgestone 330RX. The last round I used an older Titleist DT 100 on front and a Titleist DT 90 on the back with a little better result with the lower compression.
Simply put" Should I or shouldn't I?" Realizing that is entirely subjective.
I had asked one of the instructors privately, but he declined to respond. I do not blame him as he may have misjudged my motives. That's not important anyway.
