"One of the most fascinating aspects of the gofl swing when I was coming up in the game, back in the 1940's and into the 1950's, was the variety of looks among the pros. There were a lot of differently shaped backswings- I'm thinking Miller Barber and Gay Brewer, who had odd whirligig actions- but all of them, Barber and Brewer included- were in the same position at impact. It was and remains the way to be at that point, the hands ahead of the ball, weight on the left side, eyes on the ball, and so forth. They may have used different routes, but all arrived at the same destination.

This is where John Erickson starts his teaching of the golf swing, which is why he is having such remarkable success with his "ABS" students. It's a unique way to teach the swing, but one that makes perfect sense.

John's experiences as one of the best junior golfers in California, his All American play at Fresno State, his performance on the Canadian Tour (where he won the Windsor Charity Classic) and the Australian Tour (where he gave Greg Norman a go at least once) was not simply because he had a gift. He thought a lot about the swing, and of course still does, and has found a way to bring his knowledge, experience, and sensitivity to his teaching."

ABS offers the serious student a way to learn a proper golf swing based upon pressures and forces that need to be created and felt within the body. Understanding how positions are created by active dynamic movement is one of the unique qualities of the ABS methodology.
Like any instruction, it's value will always be measured by results. Like Hogan said, "The secret is in the dirt". A combination of hard work, and working on the right things is the fastest way to success.


The ABS curriculum allows students to interact with both the instructor and fellow students as they move through the drills and biomechanical swing modules in both the public and private areas of the instructional web forum.
