Athletic Hall of Fame
Rocky Walcher - 2006
No Southwestern golfer was more dominant than Woodward’s Rocky Walcher. In the early 1980’s, Walcher won eight tournament titles during his career. He won medalist honors at the 1985 District 9 Championship and qualified for the NAIA National Tournament. Walcher played professionally for a number of years including on golf’s most glamorous stage, the PGA tour. His highest finish was an eighth-place tie at the 1995 Deposit Guaranty Classic which netted him a tidy sum of $20,000. Walcher had six top-five finishes and ended the year 17th on the season money list on the 1997 Nike Tour. He played on the Nationwide Tour until 2004 before retiring from professional golf.
