Charles Gordon Howell III (born June 20, 1979) is an American golfer. He has been featured in the top 15 of the Official World Golf Rankings.

Howell was born and raised in Augusta, Georgia, the home town of the Masters Tournament. He was a member of Augusta Country Club, which is adjacent to Amen Corner at Augusta National Golf Club. Howell graduated from Westminster Schools of Augusta, and soon after attended Oklahoma State University. In 2000, he was a member of the winning team and also the individual winner at the NCAA Division I Golf Championships with a record-setting 23-under-par performance. Also in 2000, he won the Haskins Award honoring the most outstanding collegiate golfer in the United States.

Howell only played in three professional events as an amateur. At the age of 17 Howell participated in his first PGA Tour event. He entered the Buick Challenge but missed the cut. The next year he missed the cut at the Canon Greater Hartford Open. Howell finished in a tie for second at the BUY.COM Greensboro Open on the Nationwide Tour. At the time it was the best finish by an amateur in a Nationwide Tour event.
