Forward swing:

Rotate the hands and arms so that the toe of the club is pointing horizontally to the left.

This is a drill to help the average golfer eliminate the slice. If you are holding the club too tightly, this action of turning the arms and club head will not happen at the proper area in your swing. Most of the time, the action is too late. The golfer has hit the ball with the club face being open creating a slice.
