Roland Thatcher Biography

Roland Thatcher was born in Hampton, Virginia on 11th April 1977. He had a successful spell at Auburn University in Alabama where he was an All-American and the Southeastern Conference golf champion. He turned professional in 2000.

Thatcher joined the the Nationwide Tour in 2002 after finishing 47th at the PGA Tour Qualifying School. In April of that year he recorded his first Top Ten finish at the Louisiana Open. In October at the Bank of America Monterey Peninsula Classic he won with a final round of 74 for his first Nationwide Tour victory. In 2003 Thatcher had four Top Ten finishes on the Nationwide Tour including a tie for 2nd at the Price Cutter Charity Championship where he earned $48,200. He finished the year with a tie for 28th at the PGA Qualifying Tournament which earned him fully exempt status on the PGA Tour in 2004.

As a rookie on the PGA Tour Thatcher started off the first half of 2004 with little success. However, things improved in the second half of the year, but because of his slow start, he finished out of the Top 125 on the PGA Tour money list and therefore had to go back to Q-School. He played very well at the PGA Qualifying Tournament finishing in the Top 10, thus retaining his card for 2005.

In 2005 Thatcher enjoyed a good start to year, tied for 8th position at the FedEx St. Jude Classic where he fired a final round 69 and took home the largest paycheck of his career at $142,100. However he had a poor finish to the year and ended up 173rd on the money list and therefore had to go back to Q-School. He failed to keep his card finishing outside the Top 30 at the PGA Qualifying Tournament. 2006 saw Thatcher back on the Nationwide Tour where he started the year off well with a Top 10 finish at the Jacob's Creek Open Championship in Adelaide, Australia. He received a sponsor's exemption to the PGA Tour's Shell Houston Open and did well finishing 19th. He also had Top 10 finishes at the Xerox Classic and the PalmettoPride Classic. He ended up in 55th on the final 2006 Nationwide Tour money list. At the PGA Tour Qualifying Tournament he failed to earn his PGA Tour card for 2007.

On the Nationwide Tour again in 2007 saw Thatcher get off to a slow start missing the cut 3 times in his first 4 tournaments. Things then improved tremendously as he had five Top 25 finishes in a row. On July 1, he won his second Nationwide Tour title at the Peek'n Peak Classic and set a new tournament record at 15-under-par. This victory moved him from 10th into 4th place on the Nationwide Tour money list. He was also awarded the Nationwide Tour Player of the Month for June. In July he won for the second time in 2007 with a final score of 24-under-par at the Cox Classic This moved him into first place on the Nationwide Money list. Thatcher was not able to hold on to the number one spot and finished the year in second place on the 2007 Money List, earning his PGA Tour card for 2008. He also became only the third player in Nationwide Tour history to earn at least $400,000 in one year.

Back on the 2008 PGA Tour he shot a career best 61 in the third round at the Mayakoba Classic at Riviera Maya in Mexico. Although he made the cut on the number, he ended up finishing with his first Top-10 of the year. In April he finished T-7 at the EDS Byron Nelson Championship earning $179,733.34 and the largest payday of his career. He had arthroscopic surgery on his wrist that sidelined him for the remainder of the 2008 season.
