Walcher Could Be Oak Tree Underdog

Rocky Walcher isn’t a member of the famed ‘Oak Tree Gang’, but is another member of Oak Tree National to keep an eye on in the 2014 US Senior Open.

The Oklahoma native played professional golf for 10 years on the Nationwide and PGA tour.

Walcher has had a number of jobs during his golf career including selling cell phones and he’s spent the last nine years as a financial adviser.

After shooting a 68 at a one day qualifier in Texas, Walcher qualified to play in the 2014 US Senior Open.

The SWOSU athletic hall of fame member will have a special weekend, as his two sons will caddy for him.

Conrad, a collegiate golfer at Wichita State University, is trying to qualify for the US Amateur at the same time his father is practicing for a major.

Rocky’s other son, Trip, says that the two brothers will alternate caddying for their father through the weekend.
