David Roesch Recently Inducted Into The Wisconsin Golf Hall of Fame
In November it became official as David Roesch was inducted into the Wisconsin Golf Hall of Fame. The University of Wisconsin alumni and Menomonee Falls resident learned of the news back in May, but it was only recently that he received his induction plaque.
The Milwaukee native's list of accomplishments in golf is very impressive. He first left his mark on Wisconsin golf as an amateur back in the late nineties, as he captured back to back WSGA Match Play Championships in 1996 and 1997 and a Ray Fischer Public Links title in 1997. The quality play led him to be named 1997 WSGA Player of the Year.View More
