MILWAUKEE - Gator Todd, a former All-SEC player at Alabama and professional on the Web.com Tour, has joined the Marquette University men’s golf program as assistant coach.
"We are excited and fortunate to have Gator join our coaching staff,” head coach Steve Bailey said. “He exemplifies our team values and comes to Marquette with a competitive edge and passion to help our guys improve. Gator brings a wealth of experience from the collegiate and professional level. His time working under coach Jay Seawell at Alabama, along with Todd Anderson and Randy Myers at Sea Island Golf Club, will be a tremendous asset to our team."
Marquette is Todd’s first collegiate coaching position. His golf career includes playing experience on the Web.com Tour, NGA Tour and E Golf Tours. Todd had Web.com Tour membership in 2012. His career highlights include advancing to the Final Stage of the 2011 PGA Tour Qualifying Tournament, three professional career second-place finishes, and a low professional round of 63.
While playing, he experienced high-level instruction for five years (2010-15) at the Sea Island Golf Performance Center (GPC) in St. Simons Island, Georgia under world-renowned and PGA award-winning instructors Todd Anderson and Randy Myers. GPC is used by numerous professional tour players, including past major champions Stewart Cink, Lucas Glover, Zach Johnson, Justin Leonard and Davis Love III.
A four-year letterman at Alabama, Todd played in 43 tournaments during his Crimson Tide career while logging 130 total rounds with a 73.55 scoring average. A 2007 All-SEC performer, Todd played in the 2005 and 2007 NCAA Championships. He posted 11 career top 10 finishes and five times placed in the top five. Todd fired 22 rounds under par at Alabama and finished five tournaments under par as well. In Todd’s senior season (2008), the Tide earned their first-ever season-ending No. 1 ranking. Alabama was the top seed at that year’s NCAA Central Regional, which included 23rd-seeded Marquette.
Todd is a native of Florence, Alabama, where he was a high school state champion and junior golf All-American at Coffee High School.
