I'm gonna assume your right handed which means either your top hand (closest to you, if your right handed this is your left hand) is doing too much work and coming in faster than your right hand. If this is the case, then you are in good shape...its easy to fix. All you have to do is after you hit a slice, step back and swing like you are hitting a golf ball off a baseball tee, like 4 ft off the ground, making sure you are focusing on using your right hand to guide the power of you legs and hips, also concentrating on your hands rolling over each other(if you don't know what i mean there pm me and i'll go into more detail on that). Another drill is setting up in stance, address the ball, then just take your left hand off and concentrate on a moderate back swing and an online follow thorugh.
If its your hands turning the club, i.e. the blade is coming in openly, then its a little harder to fix and you just half to work on your grip. You'll know you have this symptom by hitting a ball and after your follow through, look at how your grip changed form set-up to after contact with the ball. To fix this, go to your backyard with your club and take practice swings by making sure you have the ideal grip and then choke the hell out of the club so that you have the same grip at the end. NORMALLY THIS IS A VERY BAD IDEA because it might throw your mechanics off ridiculously but its one of the only ways to fix bad hands. One thing you might want to tinker with, I don't know if you are already doing this, but in your grip, instead of lingin your hands up one by one loop your pinky of your right hand with the index finger of your right hand. This will solidify your grip so its still flexible to get the wrist whip, but solid enough so that you don't move around buring contact. I however, hate that grip.
The only other thing I can think of now is that your swing may not be on a line. Instead of your club hitting the ball at a perpendicular angle, your swing is coming from in side out, i.e. in baseball term, you are jamming yourself. The only way to fix this is mark two spots in front of your ball and two spots behind your ball so that they make a line paralell to your stance. Then as you swing, concentrate on following those marks with your clubhead, but don't do anything that would throw off your swing unnaturally.
If you need anything else just PM me I'd be glad to help
I don't want to sound like a know-it-all show off or anything, but I've gotten letters from Clemson, UT, Texas A&M, and Rice for golf, and my abuela was a golf pro for 15 years, last wednesday I shot a 86 from the tourney tees.

Does anyone have any tips on how to fix a HORRENDOUS slice? I would have a really good golf game if I could get rid of my slice. I drive nearly 300 yards...but unfortunately, it's on the wrong fairway!
i'll leave golf to u ole folks. don't break your hip
