At an early age, Wayne Rhoderick showed promise as a golfer. Over the years, he has compiled a record unequalled by any area competitor on an amateur level: He was ranked No. 1 as a member of the John Hopkins University team and won 16 area club championships, playing at V.F.W, Holly Hills, and Eaglehead Country Clubs. He has qualified for many successive years for Maryland State Amateur match play; was a holder of the V.F.W. Club record at 63; was selected as a member of the Walker Cup Team; and was a winner of more than 100 tournaments during a spectacular career. Rhoderick was modest, talented, and dedicated.
