Club Scene: Traditions' head pro Bendert is a Hogan disciple to a tee
* Name: Greg Bendert.
Having taking up the game only a few years earlier, Bendert was determined to get better.So every day after his shift at Felix Roma Bakery, Bendert would head to the Links at Hiawatha Landing in Apalachin to hit multiple buckets of balls on the driving range.
Little did he know that his motivation would eventually make him the head pro at a golf course.
"The competitive side of me got out," said Bendert, 38, who is in his second year as the pro at Traditions at the Glen. "I wasn't doing as good as I thought I could, so I just started practicing."
A 1984 grad, Bendert was one year behind Herceg in high school, but the two were familiar with each other.
Are you interested?' " Bendert recalled as Herceg offered him a job.
Shortly after taking an assistant position at Hiawatha, Bendert turned professional in 1997 and after seven years left to take the head job at Traditions at the Glen in 2004, when the course got new owners.
Those who know Bendert well shouldn't be surprised that determination has allowed him to make a career in golf.
Bendert's ability to make a career in golf personifies his golfing idol.
If Greg and Becky's second child had been a boy, the name would have been Palmer Nicklaus.
Greg also swears by Hogan's timeless book, Ben Hogan's Five Lessons: The Modern Fundamentals of Golf.
After a frustrating round in 1993, which happened to be at Traditions at the Glen, Greg was told by a friend to get a copy of the book.He said he's read it at least a dozen times.
About a year later, Bendert went one step further by getting a tattoo on his left thigh of Hogan during his backswing.
"He's in my blood," Bendert said of Hogan with a laugh.
Bendert is now turning his attention toward improving the course he runs.Although he said there are no plans to convert Traditions at the Glen to a country club, Bendert acknowledged that golf is only a part of what makes his course special.With overnight suites and fine dining available on site, Traditions at the Glen is focusing on selling an image to the customer in addition to offering golf.
The biggest change expected for next season is that the nine-hole Homestead Course is being shut down, leaving Traditions at the Glen with just its 18-hole championship course.
"It's kind of sad because that's where anybody here growing up either snuck on or got to go on for dirt cheap," Bendert said of Homestead."A lot of memories."
