I wrote a book about Clubfitting you can find at Amazon. It was a Best Seller. One of the reviews I’m most proud of came from an AGCP member who also happens to be one of the Top rated PGA Golf Professionals in Europe. My good friend Mike McFadden.

It’s a Kindle download and very inexpensive so anyone can afford to read it.

Knowledge AND experience are tough to beat. Roy Nix has plenty of both! You have to love the way he paints a visual expression of all the important clubfitting concepts, like trying to find a qualified fitter, “You might say it’s like having a General Practice Physician tell you he can perform heart surgery. Well, he probably can but do you want him to? Or would you go to a heart surgeon? He takes hard to grasp facts like MOI or club weight and creates vivid word images that everyone can understand, “A major league pitcher can’t throw a bowling ball, or a tennis ball 90 mph. A batter can’t hit home runs with a 15 pound bat, or a light weight plastic bat. A kicker can’t kick a cement football, or a nerd football very far. It is easy to get caught up in all the marketing hype from the big golf equipment manufacturers, but do yourself and your game a favor, buy this book. Read it before you purchase any new golf clubs! You will not regret it. Thanks Roy!

We are in an era that many are calling the “golden age” of golf equipment technology. While that may or may not be true, it is certainly the case that the sheer volume of new products and new ideas about metalwoods, irons, wedges and putters is overwhelming to the poor golf consumer. He or she is too often frustrated by the terms and the promises and even just the appearance of modern equipment that it often seems safer to not do anything and just keep plodding along with ill-fitting equipment that most certainly is doing little to foster real improvement.
The solution to this unfortunate and unnecessary malaise is, of course, knowledge about how clubs work and how the right fit is the ultimate game-changer for any golfer, touring pro or weekend warrior. That has been the hallmark of Roy Nix’s career as not just a clubfitter, but as a real educator in the game of golf. More importantly, what thousands of golfers have experienced over the years in seeking out his equipment advice and what so many more now will glean by reading this book, is that Roy educates without sounding like he’s conducting a doctoral seminar in quantum physics. He talks to us not only with the voice of experience but with words and examples that are simple and practical. He has a passion for making golfers better by showing them their true potential, and more importantly, how obvious that potential can be made real by the proper use of the game’s proper tools.
Quite simply, his ideas as detailed in this book can be the spark that inspires golfers and those who work with them to take complete advantage of the game’s golden age of equipment technology.
