The team at Four Seasons Resort and Club Dallas at Las Colinas is proud to announce that PGA Director of Golf Instruction Tim Cusick has recently achieved the sought-after title of PGA Master Professional status. Cusick graduated from the PGA Master Professional Program 2.0 with a focus in Teaching and Coaching, making him only the third golf instructor in Dallas with the Master Professional title and the eighth in the state of Texas.

With more than 25 years in the PGA and 13 years with the Resort, Cusick has overseen an operation unlike many golf facilities. He provides instruction for many visiting golfers from all over the world - Four Seasons Golf & Sports Club private members, hotel guests and other golf instructors - on either one of the Resort’s two 18-hole golf courses. Cusick’s lifelong passion for the game has led to his recognition as a world-renowned golf instructor, an achievement not easily obtained.

“Instructing is a special skill, really. Like in the medical profession: there are general practitioners and specialists. I’m a specialist," says Cusick.

Cusick, a member of the PGA for more than a quarter of a century, has far surpassed the PGA master professionals program requirement of being an active member for at least 8 years. Once a member has reached this requirement, the candidate must complete a literature review and written project approved by the Master Professional Project review and evaluation team. This project allows the candidate to display their professional mastery in whichever focus they have chosen. In Cusick’s case, he provided a physical demonstration due to his focus on teaching and coaching.

Cusick’s dedication to improving the skills of those he teaches is what lead him to pursue reaching this PGA status. “I encourage my students to do all they can to reach their highest potential in the game. I knew that graduating from this program would further equip me with the skills needed to help them do so," says Cusick.

In addition to this remarkable achievement, Cusick has much to be proud of in his teaching history.  Not only is he a three-time North Texas PGA Teacher of the Year, Cusick is also ranked as a Golf Digest Top Teacher winner in the state of Texas since 2011.  With a focus on the future, Cusick manages an extensive junior golf program, seeing more than 125 juniors secure college golf scholarships and watching former students go on to win on all major professional golf tours around the world.  He is a true testament to helping others succeed in the game of golf.

Tim Cusick is available for private golf instruction for individuals staying at Four Seasons Resort and Club Dallas at Las Colinas. 50-minute private lessons are available for USD 190 per Resort guest; USD 215 per outside guest.  For reservations, call the Pro Shop at 972 717 2530.
