SF Golfer To Play At Historic Pinehurst

July 26, 2012, 10:08 PM by Matt Holsen

SF Golfer To Play At Historic Pinehurst
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

It's been quite the week for golfer Will Grevlos. On Sunday, the 12-year-old from Sioux Falls teamed up with his dad Mike to win a SDGA Adult-Junior title. On Monday he followed that up with the Junior Championship and on Wednesday he claimed a junior-junior event. That's a nice way to cap off the summer but the fun isn't done just yet.

Will plays golf like it’s his job. When school isn't in session, the soon-to-be seventh grader at Westward Ho perfecting his craft.

"[I’m here] about every day for about six hours. It's a lot," Will said.

Of course it's all fun and games for Will who comes from a family of standout golfers. Sisters Abbie and Katie are coming off solid seasons at Lincoln. While he doesn't play against them much, he doesn't like to lose when the three take the course together.

"Yeah, there's a lot of competition. My sisters like to beat me but it happens, not a lot, but sometimes, when they play pretty good," Will said.

Lately it's been Will that's been playing pretty good.

At the end of June, he took first at the U.S. Kids Championship Qualifier in Oakdale, Minnesota. That bought Will a third straight trip to historic Pinehurst in North Carolina for Nationals.

His dad Mike, who's also his caddy, points to his son's demeanor on the course for some of his success.

"I like his ability to focus on every shot that he hits. I also love the fact that he can have a great time out there. He really does have fun playing golf and with his friends during tournaments, he can joke around and laugh. Then he gets over his shot and he's ready. That's a great balance to have," Mike said.

"Yeah I'm pretty calm but sometimes I can get mad at some shots. I laugh at a lot of them though," Will said.

Pinehurst has been host to a PGA Championship and two U.S. Opens over the years. Will will be playing on Course No. 4 and he's looking forward to meeting fellow golfers from all over.

"It's awesome because I get to play with people from Mexico, Italy, California, all different states and countries,” Will said. “It's nice learning from them too because they're pretty good."

The championships at Pinehurst are August 2-4.

This school year will be the first time Will will get to try out for the Lincoln golf team. He hopes to make it as a seventh grader.
