Her most recent appearance in all-elite Tour lineup was at the Women's Pipe Invitational in 2014 during the men's Billabong Pipe Masters. Hamilton placed third, ahead of reigning World Champion Stephanie Gilmore (AUS).
Although Hamilton is still competing on occasion, her newest focus is motherhood. She recently celebrated the birth of her first child with her husband, Adam Dirks. Her appearance at the Swatch Women's Pro comes less than four months after her son's arrival.
