Tom Hovey has been an assistant coach and instructor for the Hamilton College golf programs since 1998. Hovey's instruction articles have been published in Golf Magazine.
One of the high points of Hovey's golfing career was finishing as the low amateur and playing all 72 holes in the Canadian Open. His other accomplishments include setting course records at 11 different golf clubs -- the most recent was a 5-under-par 30 at age 71 -- and shooting his age more than 40 times.
