What does a cavity back do for your golf swing and do the pros use it?

Cavity backs don't affect your swing. They make the club more forgiving with any swing by placing the weight around the perimeter of the club. This increases the clubs moment of inertia, and makes it less apt to torque when struck off center. Some pros use them, some use a variation on the theme, and some use the "flat-backed" irons.

They earn a lot. Aside from golf, they appear to advertisements.

Generally, they do not carry golf balls in their pockets.

No, not the pros, but when you are out for a round of golf with your buddies, of course so.

The outside-in swing impacts the golf ball right of center instead of flush on the back of the ball. The resultant spin turns the ball clockwise in the air, causing it to "slice" to the right, also known as a "banana ball." At Over the Top Golf, we compensate for this outside-in swing with five set-up changes that automatically squares the clubface, provides proper weight transfer which results in a straight shot, even with the outside-in swing. There are numerous web sites as well as PGA teaching pros who advertise that they can fix, cure or correct an outside-in swing but success among amateurs is rare, unless much practice is involved. There are only three avenues of relief, one is to commit to periodic lessons and constant practice, two is to take advantage of your outside-in swing at Over the Top Golf or three which is learn to live with your left to right shots and practice the short game almost exclusively.
