Quick Catch Up: Erika Wicoff

Posted: March 5, 2013 by kelseyray in IU Women's Sports

To many, Erika Wicoff is considered possibly the most decorated golfer in IU school history.

The school record holder for single-season scoring average (73.92 in 1994) became the first golfer in Big Ten history to claim three consecutive individual titles (1994-96).

Wicoff led the Hoosiers to Big Ten titles in 1995 and 1996, as well as a fifth-place finish at the NCAA Championship (IU’s highest finish in school history).

She was a two-time All-American and became the first IU golfer to be named first team All-American (1996).

Wicoff was inducted into the IU Hall of Fame in 2006.  She still holds the IU season and career setting records.

Sooo… what has Wicoff been up to since she graduated?

In 1998, she recorded a career-best finish with a tie for fourth at the Safeway LPGA Golf Championship; she also recorded a career-low score of 65 during the final round of the Oldsmobile Classic.

In 2000, Wicoff’s best finish was a tie for 28th at the Electrolux USA Championship hosted by Vince Gill and Amy Grant.

In 2002, Wicoff returned to the LPGA Final Qualifying Tournament, where she tied for 51st to retain non-exempt status for the 2003 season.
