Grip/Swing Question

Hey everyone,

Wanted to ask this question and see if anyone can help me figure it out. This is something that I have thought about for a while now but never actually asked or done anything to address it. My question is as follows:

When I get to the top of my backswing and start my transition into the downswing, it feels as if the the butt end of the club grip is moving/rotating in the heel of my left hand (I'm right handed, so this would be my top hand on the grip), does anyone else have this feeling? I don't actively try and rotate the club or my hands to make sure the club head is neutral at the top of my swing, but should I try to do it more in order to feel more in control of my grip? My typical grip is slightly strong and I've never had a lesson before. 

Am I gripping the club too close to the end of the shaft and should I choke down more? When I try and keep my hands stiff and not allow the club to rotate I usually end up with some type of cut or fade, but I feel very stiff throughout my entire swing when I try and do this. Should I try adjusting the grip and how the club sit in my top hand?

Any feedback is greatly appreciated. Let me know if you need me to provide more information to better clarify.

Thanks!

Do you wear out gloves in the pad opposite your thumb?    If the clubs is moving at the top you probably have a grip issue.

Yes, I have always worn them out in that spot. Any idea what the fix might be?
