Jim Douglas, who helped the Georgia men's golf team win the program's two national championships, rejoined the Bulldogs' staff as the assistant coach in January of 2011.
Douglas was Georgia's assistant coach from 1997 through 2005, during which time the Bulldogs celebrated some of their greatest success. With Douglas as Coach Chris Haack's right-hand man, Georgia won NCAA titles in 1999 and 2005, along with four Southeastern Conference championships (1998, 2000, 2001 and 2004). Georgia produced 26 All-Americans, 30 All-SEC picks, two SEC Players of the Year, two SEC Freshmen of the Year, 33 SEC Academic Honor Roll selections, six All-American Scholars and an NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship recipient in that span.
"We are very happy that Jim is back with us," Haack said. "He brings so many qualities to the table. His contributions to our program - including areas like academics, recruiting, tournaments and practices - were critical to our success. Fortunately, he remained close to our program, so he was able to pick up right where he left off."
Last season, with Douglas assisting Haack in the spring, the Bulldogs advanced to the final match of the NCAA Championship. Douglas helped seniors Harris English, Russell Henley and Hudson Swafford cap their careers with All-America honors, while English was picked as an All-American Scholar.
Douglas graduated from Georgia with a double major in political science and history. He and his wife, Katherine, have two sons, James and Charles.
