The five-time tour winner and 2002 PGA Tour Rookie of the Year is the only player to list ‘hanging out with my wife at home’ as an interest. Sounds intriguing…

Hamilton’s all-beige ensemble en route to victory at Troon in 2004 hints at a studious nature, so it’s no surprise to find that he’s an avid crossword puzzler.
