Robert Damron

Robert Douglas Damron (born October 27, 1972) is an American professional golfer and current player on the PGA Tour.

Damron was born in Pikeville, Kentucky. He was raised there and later in Orlando, Florida after his father, a wealthy Kentucky coal magnate, moved the family to Orlando's exclusive Bay Hill community for warmer winter weather. Damron had the benefit of some early advice about golf from Bay Hill neighbor Arnold Palmer. He attended Orlando's Dr. Phillips High School graduating in 1990.

Damron attended the University of Central Florida in Orlando and was a distinguished member of the golf team earning All-American honors three times. He won 5 collegiate events while at UCF. He turned pro in 1994.

Damron has won one PGA Tour event, the 2001 Verizon Byron Nelson Classic. He also finished in a three-way tie for first in the same tournament in 2004 (it was called the EDS Byron Nelson Championship that year), which he and Dudley Hart lost in a playoff to Sergio García. His best finish in a major is a T-20 at the 2003 U.S. Open.

Damron's brother, Patrick, is also a professional golfer. He lives in Orlando.
