I will try to explain this the best I can... I am a right hand swinger...

I consistently hit the ball off the toe of the club. I do believe my clubface is fairly square because the ball does have decent flight but it always starts off to the right. I think that on my down swing I bring my arms in because it is consistent. Is the reason I am bringing my arms into my body during the down swing cause I am leading the club with my right hand?

Sodakrep...that could be part of it. An over the top move from the top will bring the hands in closer to the body at impact. It isn't that the grip is strong it is more the plane on which you deliver the blow to the ball that would cause this.

One other thing to look at is the fit of the equipment. If you are hitting it out on the toe consistantly the clubs you are playing could be either too short or too flat or both. You may want to double check this before you go out and make major changes to the swing.
