Robert McCallister (born May 3, 1934) is an American professional golfer who played on the PGA Tour and the Senior PGA Tour.

McCallister was born in Toledo, Ohio.[1] He later moved to Corona, California[2] and attended the University of Southern California, where he earned All American honors three times as a member of the golf team — first-team in 1956 and 1957; third-team in 1958.[3][4]

McCallister won two PGA Tour events during his career, both of which played in California in October. His first win came at the 1961 Orange County Open Invitational.[5] McCallister's second win came at the one and only incarnation of the Sunset-Camellia Open Invitational in 1964.[2][6] His best finish in a major was T-8 at the 1965 PGA Championship.[7]

McCallister played on the Senior Tour after reaching the age of 50. He also held the position of head pro at Charbonneau Golf Club in Wilsonville, Oregon.[8]
