David May says, "Thanks, Bill Novinger, Marine Corp WWII veteran, purple heart recipient, and PGA club professional!"

I was ten years old when my father died very suddenly of a heart attack at age 51. Bill Novinger, PGA pro at the local country club, rural mail carrier, and a friend of my father’s, took me under his wing, gave me my first job cleaning clubs and sweeping out the pro shop at Kirksville (MO) Country Club. He subsequently introduced me to this great game. I worked for him through high school, and he helped me secure a golf scholarship to college. We have had a lifelong (58 years) friendship.
