Any golfer who wants to improve his game will find the explanations of how golf clubs can be custom fit and custom built to match to each golfer’s size, strength, athletic ability and swing characteristics to enable golfers to play to the best of their ability to be information that will help every golfer. The book also explodes the myth that only the well-known, highly advertised, name brands in golf are acceptable for custom fitting and how many brands that golfers have not heard of before are equal to or superior in some cases to the brands advertised as played on the PGA Tour.
In short if you want to know the truth about custom fitting and how golf clubs can be tailored to help you play better, Roy cuts to the chase and delivers this information in clear, understandable terms.
“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 metal woods, 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. 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, this book hopes to educates without sounding like it's conducting a doctoral seminar in quantum physics. It talks to you not only with the voice of experience but with words and examples that are simple and practical. Translating 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, the 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.”
This book is an excellent example of how one man's passion for golf can benefit the masses. Thank you Roy for offering a vast wealth of knowledge and experience to greatly help the passionate golfer.

Very, very well done! Extremely informative! Roy does a spectacular job of presenting true custom club fitting in an easy to understand fashion. If you are truly thinking about having golf clubs "fit" to your swing, as opposed to tweaking your swing to fit your clubs or just going "retail" and hoping for some roll of the dice dumb luck ............ this is a MUST read!

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 underst
Book endorsement, in the book
