Most golfers aim one way but hit it the other, and unfortunately that other is usually to the right…sometimes the far, far right. Greg Bisconti, Head Professional at the Saint Andrew’s Golf Club in Hastings, shows how to send your ball in the right direction with a sweet draw that brings it back to the fairway where it belongs.

Bisconti knows whereof he speaks when it comes to shooting low scores. A standout golfer from a golfing family, his playing career spans titles from the MGA Junior Championship to both the Westchester PGA and Westchester Open, as well as three appearances in the PGA Championship, including bringing home the trophy for Low PGA Club Pro for the 2009 PGA Championship at Hazeltine. He’s been a golf professional at Saint Andrew’s since 1999 and head pro since 2014.
Saint Andrew’s Golf Club is the oldest continuously operating golf club in the country. Founded in 1888 by a Scottish sportsman, the clubs members are part of the “Apple Tree Gang,” a unique fellowship in American golf. The club has a museum of golf memorabilia and is stocked with a priceless collection of early golf clubs and balls.
Along with the club’s modern course, it boasts a state-of-the-art performance center. The Apple Tree Performance Center is a year-round teaching facility for golfers to practice and receive instruction from professionals. The center is equipped with launch monitors, FlightScope with 3D doppler tracking radar, Boditrak Pressure Mats, and V1 Swing Analysis systems. Plus, the center has been recognized as one of the top 50 private club golf training facilities in the country by the Golf Range Association of America.
