About Len Mattiace
It all started when…
Len was six when his father Louis encouraged him to take up golf. Len is left-handed, but he plays golf right- handed. Though he started early, it wasn’t until high school that Len began to elevate his game, eventually becoming the #1 ranked player in Junior Golf. His skill and fortitude earned Len a scholarship to Wake Forest where he was a two time All- American and key member of the 1986 NCAA National Championship team.
After turning pro in 1990, Len has enjoyed a successful career highlighted by two PGA TOUR wins and a dramatic, runner up finish at the Masters. Since turning 50, Len has never been more confident about his game. He’s looking forward to a successful 2018 on PGA TOUR Champions.
