You are just not swinging the club down on the same line that you are bringing it back on, you could be coming over the top slightly, or you could be pulling the club to the outside and swinging down on the same line, therefore causing you to hit it off the heel. One thing you could do is address the ball with the toe of the club, this should help you hit it out of the middle.

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.

Hitting the toe? You just need to try and groove your swing so you can hit the sweet spot or centre of the club. To get the ball up in the air, it may sound silly, you need to hit down on the ball. All the pros hit down on the ball to compress it and get it up in the air, the loft of the club is all that is needed to get the ball up.

Did Tiger throw his club in the sand when he won two weeks ago Why no penalty?

Under normal circumstances, with your ball in the sand, if you touch the sand with your club and are not in the process of making a stoke (the downward motion of the club with the intention of hitting the ball) you incur a penalty for testing the sand. But since Tiger's ball was NOT in the sand when his club hit the sand he was not penalized. I think...please correct me if I'm wrong.

What is the usual cause for hitting the ball off the toe of the club and what is a good drill to correct this?

Possible causes: 1. Too far away from ball. 2. "Flinching", or bringing your hands and arms in to your body at impact. Possible fix: 1. Stand closer or 2. Address the ball on the heel. Coming over the top is the cause of this problem. When the club approaches the ball from outside the ball-to-target line it will travel too much to the inside after impact. This is called an out-to-in swing path and is also at the same time very steep. The only part of the clubface that can contact the ball is the toe end. This happens all too often when a player uses his bigger muscles (especially the shoulders)and swings too hard at the ball causing an in-to-out path. To correct this problem and shallow out the plane. Stand with your feet together and make shorter swings (7 iron) with mostly the arms and make sure that you hinge your wrists in the back and through swings. This will give you a better feel for he clubhead and teach you how to swing the clubhead through the ball rather than hitting at it. You will be very surprised how far you can hit the ball with this drill and how much easier it is to hit the middle of the club. Effortless power is the secret and not powerless effort!

When playing golf you hit down on the ball and turn your wrist over just as you are hitting the ball it seems to go farther is this wrong or right way to do it?

This is the perfect way to do it. This is how you hit the ball straighter and compress the ball better. When you turn your wrists over you are squaring the club face, if you didn't turn the club face over you would just hit big blocks. And as you are hitting down on the ball you are creating compression, this is how a golf ball is meant to be hit and this is why you are getting more distance. Look at the pros on tv, they compress the ball so well, that's why you see huge divots.

What is MOI in hitting a golf ball?

MOI is moment of inertia, and this is basically the golf club heads resistance to twisting. It applies to woods and drivers.
