A hook grip can help fix your slice and improve your golf game; learn pro golf tips for fixing, curing a slice in this free golf lesson video.
This segment on how to cure your slice is related to the grip. Earlier I spoke about a left hand grip with your thumb going straight down, where when you're coming to the ball your hand goes back to it's normal or natural position and that's what opens up the club face. Now, if you would like to try a hook grip, that right there could cure your slice, and to do that when you hold the club, instead of seeing one knuckle on the back of your left hand, you don't see two, you don't see three, you don't see four, you could actually see four and more. We're exaggerating, with your right hand. Instead of the line from your thumb and forefinger going towards your chin, or between your chin and your shoulder, or instead of at your shoulder, put it to the right of your shoulder. So your grip would look something like this. Now, yes I agree that's excessive, but your reaction to when you slice the ball, acting like a little baby is also excessive. So don't get me so ma... If you exaggerate, super-exaggerate and then see if you start hooking the ball too much, that would be a nice little problem wouldn't it; and if you do start hooking too much, well then just work your way back slightly. But a change in the grip, very often, can get you from slicing to hooking and do it too much, exaggerate and see what happens.
