The change was brought about under the guidance of former Lions kicking coach Dave Alred..
The results are there for all to see and will give the Munster man renewed confidence if, as expected, he makes a third trip with the Lions this summer.
"Kicking is a subject that fascinates me and I have been experimenting with my style this season. I'm always trying to improve and I guess it is a bit of mix and match at this stage," said O'Gara.
"Dave Alred has come in and helped me. I have found a new power position in the last few weeks and I'm trying to work on that.
"It's something I enjoy and I'm benefiting from working with Dave."
With a first Irish Grand Slam in 61 years already in his trophy cabinet this season, O'Gara is now setting his sights on retaining the Heineken Cup and adding the Magners League to Munster's collection.
"I think the emotion and satisfaction we got sitting in the dressing room in Cardiff was huge. I don't think we appreciated how big a thing it was to win the Grand Slam," admitted O'Gara in the wake of Munster's 43-9 win on Sunday.
"There is huge confidence in that group of players and we've come back to Munster with a new hunger and a new ambition."
