IOWA CITY, Iowa — Former men’s and women’s assistant golf coach at Division II Lander University, Charlie Hoyle, has been named the assistant coach for the University of Iowa men’s golf team.
“I am extremely excited to join the Iowa golf program,” Hoyle said. “Coach Stith has built a nationally recognized, competitive golf program and I relish the opportunity that both he, and the University of Iowa have given me to help take the program to the next level of success.”
“We are very happy to welcome Charlie to Iowa City,” University of Iowa head coach Tyler Stith said. “He’s an accomplished player with strong coaching credentials and will be a great asset to our program.”
A native of Lancashire, England, Hoyle played at Lander University in South Carolina from 2006-2010, where he recorded three second-place individual finishes and seven team victories. Hoyle was a two-time NCAA PING All-Region selection and a two-time All-Peach Belt selection, while being voted Lander’s Most Valuable Player by his teammates in 2009.
After graduating in 2011 with a bachelor’s degree in physical education/exercise studies, he competed professionally, winning 10 events across various mini-tours in the U.S, while also competing in the PGA Tour’s Q-School. Hoyle’s playing career stretched to Europe on the PGA Europro Tour and other mini-tours.
In August of 2012, Hoyle was hired as Lander’s men’s and women’s assistant golf coach. While assisting the men’s team, he helped lead the Bearcats to two team wins and recruited and coached six men’s all-conference players, three NCAA PING All-Regional players, two conference freshman of the year, and two NCAA All-Americans.
As the women’s assistant, Hoyle recruited and coached seven women’s all-conference players, two NCAA PING All-Regional players, two conference freshman of the year, and one NCAA All-American. Hoyle also helped guide the women’s team to an impressive nine team wins.
“I plan to embody Iowa’s Win, Graduate, and Do It Right brand by following the guidelines and protocols that Coach Stith already has in place,” Hoyle said. “One of the main reasons for me choosing Iowa was Coach Stith and the philosophies that he has in place for the team and its members.”
