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.

What is a banana ball in golf?

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.

What is the cause of hitting your driver off the heel of the club?

One of the causes of this is an inaccuracy in your swing. What you could be doing here is bringing the club slightly to the outside as you swing back and therefore the corresponding motion in your downswing is causing the club back down along that outside path therefore hitting the ball with the heel of the club. What you could do here is either slow your swing down and try and regroove it properly, or at address have the ball set up inline with the toe, this will cause you to hit the middle of the club even if you bring your swing to the outside. This is a simple fix which even some PGA Tour pros use.

What are all the styles of golf irons?

There are three main styles when it comes to golf irons. The first and probably the most common among amateur golfers is a cavity back. This club has a significant indentation on the backside of the club. These irons will be the most forgiving of the three main types and will give the most consistent feedback. I would recommend these irons for anyone with a handicap above a 10 as they are a great starting club. Adams golf club is possibly making the best cavity back irons right now. They come in two types, game improvement and super game improvement both of which are good for the beginning golfer. The next major type is what many companies call a half-cav, or a half cavity back. These irons will have less of an indentation on the back and are slightly less forgiving. These irons will allow the player to shape shots significantly more than the full cavity back and are made for players in the 0-10 handicap range. Many tour pros play these irons and absolutely love them. The final type is a blade iron. These will have no indentation in the back and would qualify as very unforgiving. These irons will react very poorly to any shot that is not hit on the sweet spot. These irons will definitely allow the player to shape shots to their heart's desire. These are the only irons that will truly allow the player to hit massive hooks or slices that aren't possible with the full or half cavity irons. Some of the tour pros are playing these irons but many of them have moved away from these irons in recent years because the half-cavs have made significant improvements. I personally would not recommend playing blade irons unless you average under par. I did play blades for awhile and I am a low single digit handicap and absolutely hated them. They are very difficult to be consistent with but if you are a very good player then you can handle them.
