The team at Four Seasons Resort and Club Dallas at Las Colinas is proud to announce that its very own Director of Golf Instruction Tim Cusick has recently achieved the sought-after title of PGA Master Professional status. He graduated from the PGA Master Professional Program 2.0 with a focus in Teaching and Coaching.
Through Cusick’s 13 years with the property, he has overseen an operation unlike many golf clubs out there. He provides instruction for many visiting golfers from all over the world, Four Seasons Golf & Sports Club members, and hotel guests 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.”
Cusick has been a member of the PGA for more than 25 years now, far surpassing the PGA Master Professionals program requirement of being an active member for at least eight 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, this required 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.”
