Willard “Lefty” Grove
Willard is a WWII Veteran who did not start playing golf until he was 39 years old. He started his first ever round of golf by renting some right handed clubs and proceeded to shot a 65. The next week he rented a left handed set and proceeded to shoot 65 again. Willard is a regional treasure who has influenced many in the area in terms of golf. He loves every aspect of the game. His love for the game is matched by his love for his family who has shared the joys of golf with at every turn. Due to some health issues Willard has not been able to play golf recently, but that has not kept him away from the course. He has driven the grounds at Rolling Hills, his home course which he earned the name “mole killer” at.
