Default Grip a Golf Club

I naturally have a strong grip and really struggle to square the face on any club lower than a 9 (i.e. 8,7,6,etc).

This has always (in my 6m of playing golf) caused pretty big hooks because the clubface turns closed at impact.

I've watched a ton of videos and read some articles and forum posts and I'm more confused than ever with what to do.

The obvious choice is to switch to a neutral grip and I bought a training aid to help. I've found the neutral grip has improved my driving but ruined my chipping (lol), and feels very awkward with irons. I understand the latter part is to be expected but it really feels wrong and the swing now feels weird and uncomfortable.

I hear more pros tend to advocate the strong grip these days, so what if my naturally strong grip is "better" for me and I just need to learn how to manipulate the swing or forearm rotation or whatever it might be to better square the face. I guess I am weary of changing grip as it might require a complete swing change, and also lead me to a change that'll screw up my game in the long run.

Do you have any advice on what to do? Had similar issues? And is it ok to have different grip styles for different clubs?
