That's because you need retrograde spin on the cue ball. The side that hits the object ball has to be moving backwards relative to the object ball. Most people are not willing to put that much spin on the ball. You need to hit the ball with maximum outside and a little draw. If you don't miscue at least one in ten, you are probably not far enough off center.
