Elite Golf Performance Reviews

"We Deliver Performance"

""The Best Golf Lessons I've ever had in my life were from Matt Christian of Elite Golf Performance. I love the golf swing drills, kettlebell/TRX training and mental aspects he's taught me over the years. I send my friends who are serious about getting better to come see these guys.

"Matt Christian and Elite Golf Performance have in two months transformed my golf game. I am striking the golf ball more solidly and consistently from putter to driver. I am blasting drives 270 to 300 yards, putting better than ever before, and just plain swinging better. This is also the first time in my life that I have ever been able to put spin on the ball with a short iron. This may not seem remarkable but last year my game had gotten so bad that I was ready to quit. It was not uncommon for me to shoot a round in the 100’s. My last two rounds this month have been in the 80’s with a low of 83. These scores would not have happened but for Matt and his team working with me in the gym, on the practice range, and on the course. Their system works. I have no dobt that I’ll be breaking 80 by late summer. This is bar none my best golf investment ever! These guys are good!!"

"Before working with Matt Christian, I was a mediocre golfer with poor fundamentals who occasionally lucked into a good round. Now, having worked with Matt since 2004, I have a fundamentally sound golf swing with much greater consistency. Matt helped me to two all-conference and two all-state titles before graduating high school. Following the structured plan that Matt gave me, I was able to get a scholarship to a NCAA Division II University where I was able to play the number one position in my freshman year. I am currently in my junior year of college. My scholarship has increased, and I continue to play the leading position. In college golf, I have 17 top 10 finishes including 2 tournament wins. I have been recognized by ESPN magazine as well as earning all-conference honors. Without Matt Christian, none of this would have been possible. Besides supplying me with golf and personal training knowledge, Matt has pushed me to be the best golfer possible through emphasis on a strong work ethic, mental toughness and a determined attitude. He has believed in me when I didn’t believe in myself and has gone the extra mile to be available whenever I needed him. Matt Christian is a golf instructor who will work just as hard (or harder) as you do to help your game. I am confident that he can revolutionize your game in the same way he has mine."

"I have had the privilege of working on my golf game with Matt. His insight into the dynamics of the golf swing is by far the best.He works within a persons limitations. He identified what I was doing wrong and corrected it with drills to work on.Upon working with the drills and Matt's guidance I have finally found an instructor who put my game back on the right track.I have, thanks to Mat, been striking the ball with accuracy. I have obtained confidence that I did not have before. I would recommend Matt, and have done so, as my son has had lessons from Matt and is playing better golf. His friends are amazed as to his progress. Thanks Matt. I will always use Matt from time to time, as I believe in his philosophy and approach to the golf swing."

"In July of 2005 at age 12, my son decided he wanted to start playing golf. At that time, Miles could not keep score due to his inconsistency. After hearing good things about Matt and his Junior Golf Programs, we decided to give it a shot. Matt began working with our son on a weekly basis and in less than one year, Miles qualified for the Arkansas PGA State Tournament. In his second year, Miles shot his lowest round ever, a 71 from the back tees at age 14. Matt instilled a tremendous amount of confidence in my son. After seeing Miles' success, I took a series of lessons from Matt and went from a 30 handicap to a 12 handicap in one year. Matt has an ability to see what is going wrong in the golf swing and is able to relate it to his students. He can work with the weekend hacker like me to make the game more enjoyable, or he can design a program and teach the person that wants to be more competitive. His personality and demeanor allow him to work well with both adults and children. We highly recommend Elite Golf Performance to beginners or to the top level tour players because they will not find better quality of instruction anywhere else."

"Elite Golf Performance has helped me dramatically in ball striking in a very short period of time. The concepts I have learned are truly innovative and effective which in turn have changed the way I teach and play the game. Elite Golf Performance is the future of golf instruction."

"Matt has trained me for over six years. During that time period, I received a Division 1 college scholarship and went on to win numerous events under his guidance and instruction."

"I have been working with Matt for the last couple of months and my ball striking and short game has been as consistent as ever. He can explain the biomechanics of the golf swing in a way which anyone can understand. Golfers of all skill levels would benefit from the instruction that Matt provides."

"This place is great! I originally purchased a special on Groupon and scheduled with Matt Christian to goin today (8/06) to have a lesson.
First thing he did was ask me where I felt my strengths and weaknesses were. We chose to work on iron play. He had me hit some balls using my current swing then showed me where flaws were. Then we worked on a drill to stabilize my body through the swing and limit excessive motion. By the time we were done I was taking a much smoother, relaxed swing and making better ball contact.
Matt Christian is friendly, knowledgable, and sincere when he works with someone. He provided feedback on every swing and encouraged progress throughout the lesson. I'm definitely going to call him back in a few weeks to set up a four or eight lesson package with him because I believe in the way he teaches. It is very practical and allows the student to adjust to changes being made."

I've had the opportunity of working with a variety of "Top 100" golf instructors at some of the most famous resorts throughout the U.S., but Matt Christian of Elite Golf... is a notch above them all! I love all of the Hi-tech fitting technology. This has made a huge difference in my game, and anyone who wants to play better golf should take advantage of the same technology that tour players use.

Just as important though, is Matt's unique gift of analyzing the golf swing. His knack for identifying / explaining your strengths and weaknesses... make it easy to take lessons from the range to the course. I would urge anyone regardless of your handicap, to pay Matt Christian of Elite Golf a visit. I've never been more pleased with my golf game. Thanks Matt!

"Matt Christian’s ability to communicate contemporary golf swing concepts is outstanding. Matt has worked with our 18 year old son this past year and has elevated his game--even enough to earn a scholarship to play collegiate golf. During the past year Matt instilled in our son an understanding of biomechanics and its direct relationship to high performance golf. Without any hesitation Matt Christian delivers peak performance instruction."

First, Thank you for the outstanding training you provided. The 3-day course was outstanding. And my game has already improved tremendously since my stay with you at EGP.

You focused on four areas that have really improved my performance:

I've played each good weather day since I left EGP. I'm really making good contact with the ball. I feel more balanced and centered during the swing. Also, I got a shorter putter, 34', and started using my Bridgestone J33 irons instead of the Hogan Apex. So far, the training and equipment changes have resulted in substantial improvement. I'm happy and hyped about the prospects of my game.

Let's continue to work together. I know we just scratched the surface of what can be accomplished. I'll spend a few more weeks executing what we've already learned then follow up on more lessons.

Here's what I accomplished this weekend scoring off my ball in a 3-man scramble. We shot 56 (16 under).

Fairways In Reg: 8/13
Greens In Reg: 7/18
Birdies: 4
I play at least 2 days during the week and Sat/Sun in club competition.

Many thanks for your dedicated help, professional expertise and wonderful attitude. Give my regards and thanks to Matt."
Sincerely,
Amir Abdussabour


" I WON!!! I shot 79 my ball striking was bad but my short game was on. I feel that I could of shot a lot better. I was 8 over after 9 holes and I finished at seven over. Second place shot a 81 he is a senior from my school. The team got first place over all. Thank you very much for your help, I will try to keep you up to date as my season progresses." 2009

"My son, Martin (15 years old) ask if he could take some extra lessons to help his golf swing. I came across Elite Golf Performance in Jonesboro and decided to give it a try. His golf game was above average. He would score in the upper to middle 80's. He has taken 4 sessions with Matt and this week he shot a 79 and 75. I can see his game improving day by day. His confidence in his game is at an all time high."

"If you are looking for golf instruction that works - Elite Golf Performance is for you.  There is no magic pill and no one size fits all.  EGP will evaluate your golf swing and design a program that works - for you.  Plan to spend some time off the course gaining the flexibility and balance that is essential to swinging a golf club.  Just give "THE ELITE" program a chance and you will be amazed at the results.  I hit the ball higher, longer, and straighter than ever before.  I am having fun and I feel like I have just started to see what is possible for me to achieve.  EGP's website says "No one fails".  After spending some time working with EGP, I understand that it is not just a saying but a comittment EGP makes to it's students."

"I have been playing golf since 2008 and starting last year became serious with my game - I began maintaining my handicap and was shooting between a 24-27 index (high 90s / low 100s). I had taken a few lessons back in New Jersey, but after I relocated to Texas - I was eager to find quality instruction to get down to where I want to score....... basically I was sick of being whooped by guys 40 years older than me and taking flak from my friends. I started taking lessons with Matt back in early February of 2011. I intended to only take a few lessons to get a few ideas to work on throughout the year. After the first lesson, I decided to buy a "THE ELITE" 3 Month Program. I was aphrehensive on buying so many.... but WOW - MONEY WELL SPENT. Unlike other places, EGP doesn't try to get you to swing like a particular golf pro. He identifies your key weaknesses and will work with you to develop good fundamentals. My main issue which I had when I came in was my lack of balance. I always felt like I was falling over.EGP fixed that within one lesson. Going onto the swing, we revamped how I swung the club in easy to understand terms. One of the things which I like most about EGP is you will never be overloaded with drills to work on at the range. You get one or two thoughts to work on and they want you to play on the course --- great for someone like me because I HATE the range. This is by far the best instruction I have received since picking up the game. I am now shooting around a 12 index and am only getting better. I currently shot my low round ever 78 at Teravista in 20mph winds!!! I highly recommend EGP for anyone who is new to the game, or wants to go to the next level."

"I have been playing golf for over 30 years, in that time I have had instruction from several highly regarded teaching professionals, EGP fits well among this list. I think what really sets him apart is the full understanding of all the aspects necessary to perform at the peak levels. It is challenging as a player to find expertise in the swing, body and mind as Elite Golf Performance provides. I first visited EGP after developing sciatica in my leg, after just a few moments EGP was able to help me make some adjustments and I am happy to say I have not had a episode since, and I push it as hard as I can. IMO, you cannot find more value for your teaching dollar. I'm currently playing the best golf of my Life! "
