Mr. Dumas was a commercial double actor for Tiger Woods for five years and has been featured in Golf Digest. He also played on the Nationwide Tour for two years.

“First of all, it takes about two weeks to shoot a commercial. Stars like Tiger can’t be there all the time. Maybe a day,” Mr. Dumas said of his commercial work with the golf legend, in a 2009 interview with Golf Digest. “One thing led to another, and for a period of about five years, I was him when he couldn’t be.”

He will be teaching at Deer Valley Golf Course, 13975 W. Deer Valley Drive, and will offer both private and group lessons.

Reid West Golf Academies, located at 14260 W. Meeker Blvd., has partnerships with the Sun City West and PebbleCreek Golf Resort communities.
