Joining Woodard in the 2013 class will be National Junior Golf leader Alan Abrams and two-time Colorado Amateur champion Jimmy Vickers.
"I've been in Colorado since I was 10 years old, and if I went down the list of those inducted I bet I'd know 90 percent of them," Woodard told the Colorado Golf Association. "And I (previously) served on the Hall of Fame selection committee for four or five years, so I know what it takes to get in. It's one of the biggest accomplishments of my golfing career. To me it says, 'Job well done' and that's huge. It's outstanding news, and I can't tell you how excited I am."
Woodard was the first African-American to play varsity golf at the University of Colorado.
He led the Buffs in stroke average as a junior ('75-76) with a 76.27 figure for 30 rounds and often played his best in the Big 8 Championship tournaments, tying for fifth as junior in 1976 and placing sixth as a senior, when he earned an individual berth in the NCAA Championships and was afforded honorable mention All-America honors.
He became the sixth player in program history to twice be named first-team all-conference, garnering the nod in 1976 and 1977 and joining Keith Alexander, Dale Douglass, Hale Irwin, Larry McAtee and Jim English at the time as two-time recipients.
Woodard competed for two-and-a-half years on the PGA Tour and qualified for two U.
