Matt Trimble, a Class A-6 PGA of America Teaching Professional, recently moved his golf instruction operation from ASU Karsten Golf Course to Papago Golf Course. In addition to teaching recreational golfers from 1992 to 2018, Trimble served as an instructor for members of the nationally ranked ASU Men’s and Women’s Golf Teams as well as a volunteer assistant coach. 

“Moving to Papago definitely helps me to stay in step with the teams to help out in any way needed,” said Trimble. “It’s also a wonderful facility for the many other students I teach with a variety of practice areas and a challenging golf course. I look forward to helping them learn to play their best golf at Papago for years to come.”

An Arizona State University alumni, Trimble worked at Scottsdale’s Desert Highlands Golf Club for seven years where he honed his craft under head golf professionals Duff Lawrence and John Miller before his stretch at ASU Karsten Golf Course. Trimble has logged more than 20,000 lessons in his 25-plus years as an instructor, and he is professionally trained to fit PING and Titleist equipment. 

Trimble has been listed on Golf Digest’s ranking of “The Best Teachers in Your State” for Arizona for the last eight consecutive years, and high-profile testimonials endorsing his teaching credentials include some of the game’s best players and coaches alike. 

“Matt Trimble has been a positive factor in my experience as a player at ASU,” said Jon Rahm, No. 7 on the Official World Golf Rankings (1-11-19). “While at ASU he was a trusted set of eyes that helped me maintain my swing. He also was encouraging and believed in my abilities throughout my entire experience at ASU. I highly recommend coach Trimble’s golf instruction abilities.”

“Matt is a valuable asset to me and the ASU men’s golf program,” said Tim Mickelson, former Head Coach Arizona State Men’s Golf. “I trust his ability to assess and coach advanced players. He is very effective at communicating with each individual in a unique and personal way. Matt is proficient at helping the players with subtle instruction that instills confidence and produces results.”

“Matt was an important contributor to my amazing experience at ASU,” said Monica Vaughn, 2017 NCAA National Champion. “I have the utmost respect for him as a coach and person. He is extremely knowledgeable about the game and works hard to give the best individualized instruction while building lifelong friendships with his students. Matt was essential in helping us to our 2017 NCAA title! “
