Donald Albert "D.A." Weibring, Jr. (born May 25, 1953) is an American professional golfer who has won numerous tournaments including several on the PGA Tour and Champions Tour.

Weibring was born in Quincy, Illinois. His father started him playing golf at a young age. In 1975, Weibring graduated from Illinois State University with a Bachelor of Business Administration and turned pro later that year.

Weibring won five PGA Tour events. His first was in 1979 at Quad Cities — an event he would win three times. His last Tour victory was at the Canon Greater Hartford Open in 1996. Weibring had five top-10 finishes in major championships — twice at the PGA Championship, and one in each of the others.

Weibring joined the Champions Tour after turning 50 in May 2003, and has won five times thus far. In 2004, he led the Champions Tour with 15 top-10 finishes in 25 appearances including a wire-to-wire win at the Allianz Championship.

Weibring was inducted into the Illinois PGA Hall of Fame in 2001. He has his own golf course design and management company. He has three children: two daughters (Allison & Katy) and one son (Matt). His son was a two-time All American golfer at Georgia Tech and current player on the Nationwide Tour.
