Frederick T. "Freddie" Haas, Jr. (January 3, 1916 – January 26, 2004) was an American professional golfer.

Haas was born in Portland, Arkansas. After graduating from Dermott High School, he graduated from Louisiana State University in 1937, winning the NCAA individual championship his senior year.
