The Greatest Strikers of a Golf Ball Understood Some Very Basic Principles
Golf is first a game of accuracy. We show students how to harness the power of their clubs with advantageous lie angles, removing offset, and working into firmer shafts for control. Golf is a game played with woods and irons. We embrace the great game of golf and the clubs used to execute it.
Understanding the Game You're Playing
We educate all golfers about the three parallel existing games.
History has presented three distinct versions of golf:
1. Hickory Golf
2. Classic Golf
3. Super Golf

Welcome to ABS!
A home for golf purists
I feel blessed to have played and won on tour during the classic or persimmon era of the game. Having the opportunity to compete directly against some of the greatest players in the world, was for me, the best way to learn the game. Real on the job training. I have taken my skills and knowledge of the game and packaged them into "bite size chunks" that students can methodically integrate into their own game. We work hard and get results as the road to improvement presents itself.

The ABS Module Program
For those who desire to improve their technique
The ABS Module program has been helping high, mid, low and professional players reach their potential for over 10 years. The ABS Modules build the swing through a training program of idealistic intentions that logically stack up upon one another and improve a player's golf swing while allowing for each person's individual expression.
