The proper golf grip can help eliminate slicing. You just have to remember to look for "the V's."

The V's are the intersection of your thumb and forefinger on both hands. In order to get them pointing the right way, make sure that when you grip the club with your left hand, you can see only two knuckles pointing toward your face [source: LearnAboutGolf.com].

With your right hand, grip the club with your forefinger pointing directly down the shaft of the club. Grip the club with your two middle right fingers and place the pad of your right thumb directly over your left thumb.

Last, wrap your right forefinger around the club. When you look down at your hands, the V's formed by the thumb and forefinger of both hands should be aligned properly [source: U.S. Golf Schools and Travel].
