Richard Francis "Dick" Zokol (born August 21, 1958) is a Canadian professional golfer who has played on the Canadian Tour, PGA Tour and Nationwide Tour, winning at least one event in each venue.

Zokol was born in Kitimat, British Columbia. He attended Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, and was the captain of the 1981 NCAA championship golf team. He was also an All-American selection in 1981, on the Second Team.[1] He was a teammate of future fellow PGA Tour players Rick Fehr, Keith Clearwater and Bobby Clampett; he was Clampett's roommate for three years. He won the 1981 Canadian Amateur Championship, in a one-hole sudden death playoff over Blaine McCallister, then turned professional, and joined the PGA Tour later in 1981.

Zokol had 20 top-10 finishes in PGA Tour events during his career, including a win in 1992 after 289 starts. His best finish in a major championship was T14 at the 1993 PGA Championship.[2]

Zokol has suffered from various injuries during his career, and has taken time off to pursue other business ventures including "Director of Golf" for Eaglequest Golf Centers, Inc., a North American golf center consolidator. He lives in White Rock, British Columbia and also works with the Royal Canadian Golf Association, advising on elite player development.
