DeWitt Thompson Weaver, Jr.'s Bio

DeWitt Thompson Weaver, Jr., was born in Danville, Kentucky, on September 14, 1939 and spent part of his youth there and in Lubbock, Texas, where his father was the head football coach at Texas Tech in the 1950s. In high school, he excelled in a number of sports. After graduation, he enrolled at Southern Methodist University, where he was a multisport letterman. Weaver moved to Georgia after college and since 1965, Mr. Weaver has been a dominant force in the state of Georgia, winning a record seven Georgia PGA Championships, four Georgia Opens, and the Georgia PGA Match Play Championship. While competing on the PGA Tour from 1967 to 1976, he won the PGA Match Play Championship and the Southern Open. His other professional victories include the Atlanta Open, which he won twice, the Dixie PGA, and the Louisiana Open. He won the Georgia PGA Player of the Year Award twice. At the age of 50, Mr. Weaver joined the PGA Senior Tour in 1989.

Throughout the years, Mr. Weaver has kept three things prominent in his life: his faith, his family, and his desire to help golfers improve their skills - particularly junior golfers. Mr. Weaver was Head Golf Professional at three well-known Georgia golf courses: Sea Palms, Sky Valley, and Innsbruck.

After retiring as a touring professional, Weaver held club pro positions at Sea Palms, Sky Valley and Innsbruck golf clubs. He now runs a golf consulting company, DeWitt Weaver Golf Solutions LLC, with his sons Brian, DeWitt III and Scott.
