I have been having trouble hitting my graphite shafted clubs, which just happen to be my longer length ones (driver, 17* super hybrid, and 3 and 4 hybrids). With these clubs I have consistantly BAD slice. I recently got a new driver and super hybrid which have stiff shafts (my old driver was a regular and I could never get my hands "soft" enough to hit it right) and that has helped with those clubs some. The 3 and 4 hybrids are regular. I have done some research and two possible answers I came up with are the following:
1) Change the grips to midsize grips on the graphite shafted clubs. I wear a large size glove and can wrap my fingers all the way around the grip and under my thumb. I have noticed on longer distance shots (like off the tee) I get the "cave man grip" on my down swing. I have heard that by switching to mid-size grips it would help "quiet" my hands.
2) Change grip style. I currently use a neutral grip. A friend insists I need to switch to a strong style grip which will get rid of the slice. I don't slice with my irons and in fact, hit them fairly well. I am afraid by switching grip styles I will hurt my iron play. Is it also common for a player to use different grips with different clubs?
Can anyone advise me on which might be a direction to head? Thanks in advance.
