TIP FOR YOUR GRIP: Set your left thumb on the back side of the grip and your right one on top. If you hit a lot of slices, you should "strengthen" your left-hand position on the club. All you have to do is grip it more in the fingers, as opposed to the palm.
Everyone knows a strong grip leads to hooking the ball! In most cases that would be true. But there are those golfers who use strong grips and almost never hook or draw the ball, and struggle with slicing. These players tend to be good athletes with decent motions.
For that reason, does interlocking grip help with slice? When you open your grip too much you can lose control of the club on contact, and this can sometimes result in a slice. A proper golf grip uses the interlocking grip where the pointer finger of the top hand interlocks with the pinky finger of the bottom hand.
Beyond, what is the best grip to hold a golf club?
In simplest terms, you should have your 'lead' hand on the top of the golf club and your trail hand just underneath it. The grip should run down your fingers and palm in your lead hand, and the palm of your trail hand should sit just on top of it.
Should my driver Grip be same as irons?
Yes, you should use the same grip for all of your shots with the exception of putting. It is important to have a solid grip and one that returns the clubface to square whether you are putting, chipping, pitching, hitting bunker shots or making full swings with your woods or irons.

Very simply, with a less lofted club, it's easier for the ball to curve. ... You may even have the same swing with the driver and the iron, however, if you're hitting down with an iron and up withy the driver (due to ball position), the driver will slice and the irons go straighter (all else being equal).
Adjusting your grip to a stronger position can help you hit a shot that curves from right to left. A slight right-to-left curve is a draw shot, while a more dramatic curve is a hook. Being able to curve the ball can be useful when the shape of the hole is right to left, a dogleg.
It's already almost facing the target. The weakness inherent in this grip can cause the clubface to remain open at impact, again leading to the dreaded shank. To fix the problem, strengthen your grip position by turning your left hand more to the right (as the photo shows).
If you are a beginner golfer and you have large hands, start with the overlap. If you are a beginner golfer and you have small hands, begin with the interlock. As your game progresses and swing strengths and weaknesses start to develop, you can better decide which grip allows for better shots.
The overlap and interlock grips are the most common, with the overlap also known as the Vardon grip named after six-time Open Champion Harry Vardon. Tiger Woods and Jack Nicklaus both use the interlocking grip whilst the baseball grip is the least common of the three.
The interlocking grip requires you to cross your left index finger and right pinky. Again, place your right hand over your left thumb. Players with smaller hands often prefer the interlocking grip. The overlapping grip requires you to place your right pinky on top of your left index finger.
