Roland Thatcher enters his sixth PGA Tour season, and fourth consecutive, in 2011. Thatcher turned professional in 2000 after a stellar career at Auburn University where he earned All-American honors. He began his career on the second tier Nationwide Tour in 2002 before earning PGA Tour status in 2004 and 2005. Thatcher returned to the Nationwide Tour in 2006 and 2007, where he had one of the most illustrious seasons in Nationwide Tour history, recording two wins and an astonishing fifteen Top 25 finishes. His finish on the money list in 2007 earned him a spot back on the PGA Tour, where he has remained since then. In 2010, Thatcher recorded two Top 10’s, including a runner-up finish as the season-ending Children’s Miracle Network which propelled him into the Top 125 on the Official Money List and secured his PGA Tour card for the 2011 season.
Thatcher will open up his 2011 PGA Tour campaign at the Sony Open in Hawaii, January 13-16 at Waialae Country Club in Honolulu, HI.
