Hamilton leaves Wofford

Alex Hamilton (center) coached Wofford’s Men’s team for a little over three years.

Alex Hamilton has resigned as Wofford men’s golf coach. The Aiken native is leaving the school to join Callaway Golf as the company’s College and Amateur Development representative.

“I am sad to leave my players and hate the timing,” he said. “Wofford is an incredible place to work and coach. I will miss the college and all the wonderful people that make it a truly special place,” said Hamilton.

Hamilton coached the Terriers for a little over three seasons. Last year, in the COVID shortened campagin, the Terriers earned 5 top-10 finishes including a runner-up finish at the Musgrove Mill Match Play event.

Hamilton came to Wofford after spending a year at South Alabama as head coach. Prior to his work in Mobile, Hamilton was an assistant at South Carolina where he played his college golf.

Wofford has initiated a nationwide search for a new men’s golf coach.

In his new job the 2004 SCGA Amateur champion will represent Callaway Golf to college golfers, and aspiring young professionals hoping to build a career eventually as a Tour player.

“I will have a chance to represent a great golf company and support golfers from their college days through their developmental years as they work towards earning a spot on the Korn-Ferry Tour,” he said.

Hamilton led the Terrier golf team to 5 top-10 finishes in each of the last two seasons.

Hamilton will be headquartered in Spartanburg and have responsibilities for the Calloway program in most of the Eastern United States.
