Douglas Fred Tewell (born August 27, 1949) is an Americanmarker professional golfer who has won numerous tournaments at both the PGA Tour and Champions Tour level, including two senior major championships.

Tewell was born in Baton Rouge, Louisianamarker. He got started in the game by working as a caddie for his father in Stillwater, Oklahomamarker. He attended Oklahoma State Universitymarker in his hometown on a basketball scholarship his freshman year, but later switched to golf. Tewell graduated in 1971 and turned pro.

Tewell's best year on the PGA Tour came in 1980 when he won the Sea Pines Heritage and IVB-Golf Classic. He won two more times on the Tour in the mid-1980s. His best finishes in a major were T-9 at the 1983 PGA Championship and T-10 at the 1986 PGA Championship. Tewell was forced off the PGA Tour at the age of 46 at the end of the 1995 season due to an orthopedic problem in his left elbow. He had arthroscopic surgery on the same elbow in 2005, a procedure he describes as "cleaning out scar tissue".

The biggest win in his career was his first on the Champions Tour. He won his first major, the Senior PGA Championship at the PGA National Resort & Spa in Palm Beach Gardens, Floridamarker by seven shots over four other players including Tom Kite and Hale Irwin.

Tewell lives today in Edmond, Oklahomamarker with his wife Pam. They have a daughter, Kristie, and a son, Jay. Kristie is married to former Nationwide Tour player Pat Bates. Tewell has worked as a color analyst for the Golf Channel, ESPN and Fox Sports. Tewell and fellow Edmond Oklahoman Gil Morgan are close friends and are often seen playing for fun together.
