Tom Hanlon, co-head coach during the first five seasons of women's varsity golf at the University of Notre Dame and the last surviving member of the 1944 Irish NCAA championship men's golf squad, died Friday night at his home in South Bend, Indiana. He was 89.
Hanlon first worked with the Notre Dame women's golf program during its club sport years. He and George Thomas then served as co-head coaches for the Irish from the time the team earned varsity status beginning with the 1988-89 campaign through the 1992-93 season. Hanlon continued for a handful of years as an Irish women's assistant coach and remained a familiar face around the Notre Dame golf facilities while contributing as an administrative assistant for both the women's and men's programs.
