Richard Mast (born March 23, 1951) is an American professional golfer who has played on the PGA Tour, Nationwide Tour, and Champions Tour.

Mast was born in Bluffton, Ohio. He graduated from St. Petersburg Junior College in 1971 with a degree in business. He turned pro in 1972.

Mast played on the PGA Tour intermittently in the 1970s and early 1980s. He finished fourth in the 1985 qualifying school to earn his Tour card for 1986. He kept his card through the 1989 season when he finished 173rd on the money list and lost his card.

Mast played the inaugural season of the Ben Hogan Tour (now Web.com Tour) in 1990 and won three times and finished third on the money list to regain his PGA Tour card for 1991. He played almost exclusively on the PGA Tour through 1994 when he again lost his card by finishing 131st on the money list. He played both tours from 1995 to 2001, picking up another Nike Tour (now Web.com Tour) win in 1999.

After turning 50 in 2001, Mast started playing on the Senior PGA Tour (now Champions Tour) and placed eighth in the 2001 qualifying school to earn full exempt status for 2002. He played full-time on the Champions Tour through 2007.

Mast's best finish on the PGA Tour was second at the 1992 Greater Milwaukee Open. His best finish on the Champions Tour was third at the 2006 Senior British Open , tied for third at the 2002 Turtle Bay Championship and tied for third at the 2012 Senior British Open.

In January 2012, Mast won the Qualifying School for the European Seniors Tour.[1]
