Greg Bisconti, the Head Professional at the Saint Andrew’s Golf Club, shows you how to hit the soft, high shot that can save your round.

It’s always fun to bomb a driver down the fairway, but the golfer who is serious about shooting lower scores knows it’s the short game that puts pars and birdies on the scorecard. Greg Bisconti, Head Professional at the Saint Andrew’s Golf Club in Hastings, demonstrates a simple, fool-proof way to hit the all-important soft, high approach that leaves your ball on the green within one-putt range.

Bisconti, who earned the trophy for Low PGA Club Pro at the 2009 PGA Championship at Hazeltine (one of three PGAs where he competed), has been at Saint Andrew’s for 25 years and head pro since 2014. His playing career brought him into numerous winner’s circles, including at the MGA Junior Championship and both the Westchester PGA and the Westchester Open.

Golf instruction is an important function of the staff at Saint Andrew’s. The award-winning teaching center features technology-laded simulator bays as well as a dedicated putting lab and heated practice bays opening onto the driving range for year-round use. The range itself has special ground contouring in certain hitting areas that duplicate the off-level lies often encountered on the course. There’s also a highly versatile short game area, separate chipping green, and large putting green available for Westchester golf lovers to use.
