Grip pressure isn't something you should give advice one, because i bet you can ask 1000 people how hard they are holding the club, and then have them grip a device that measures pressure, and the ranking, lets say 1-10, compared to the actual pressure will be hugely different. My point is, people have different nerve sensors and physical ability. Pro's who have been hitting golf shots all there lives have stronger hands. So when they say, "Hold it lightly", there lightly might be our hold it tight. Hands still use muscles, and when people exercise, heavier weights feel lighter as you gain strength. Would you say to someone, "Oh 30 lbs is light", when that person has never lifted weights before. No, you tell that person, start off at 10lbs.

If you hit a draw with your irons and hybrids ( I do that same thing ) and if you want to cure it you could place your back right foot a little more forward in your stance. Good luck!
99% of the time a slice is caused by an over the top swing path, not squaring the clubface. A proper draw is hit with an open clubface, please go read the ball flight laws on this forum.

Yep, pretty much right there. When your slicing, i would just assume its a path issue. Even a big push slice could be the person getting stuck behind them, and leaving the face way open and hitting a huge push slice, its rarer than the common pull slice, but it happens. This guy i play with hits more of a straight draw to a pull draw, but when he gets stuck, he hits this huge push slice. I mean this ball starts something like 15-20 degrees right of the target and bends to the right. I've seen him miss the fairway by 100 yards before.
