William Todd Hamilton (born October 18, 1965) is an American professional golfer.

Hamilton was born in the small west-central Illinois city of Galesburg. He grew up in an even smaller Henderson County town on the Mississippi called Oquawka. He attended Union High School in Biggsville, IL and played golf regularly on the local 9-hole golf course (now an 18 holes), Hend-Co Hills. He went to the University of Oklahoma for college where he continued to play.

Hamilton turned professional in 1987 but was unable to gain entrance to the PGA Tour. Instead he played internationally for many years, primarily on the Japan Golf Tour. When he left the Japan Golf Tour, he was the all-time leading non-Japanese money winner on it, with earnings of over 630 million yen and had won 11 times.
