Doug Timmons, PGA
In 1993 Doug met one of the worlds most accomplished golf instructors, Carl Welty. Carl opened the first golf school west of the Mississippi at La Costa Resort and was the first to use video in golf instruction. Carl is now one of the master instructors for Jim McLean’s Golf School as well as Jim’s personal instructor, friend and mentor. Doug and Carl spent countless hours studying the best players and swings in the history of golf while Doug perfected his unique approach to instruction. While working with Carl, Doug also met Jim Mclean and spent time working with Jim at his highly recognized golf schools.
Haijime Matsuyama has also been a great personal friend, mentor and inspiration for Doug since 1992. Mr. Matsuyama is not only a very successful businessman in Japan but also an accomplished amateur golfer. Doug has learned many lessons from Mr. Matsuyama and the Japanese culture of business ethics, honor and communication.
