Robert Anthony Gamez (born July 21, 1968) is an American professional golfer who currently plays on the PGA Tour.

Gamez was born in Las Vegas, Nevada. He attended and was a member of the golf team at the University of Arizona . He played on the 1989 Walker Cup Team and turned pro later that same year.

Gamez has had what can be described as a hot and cold career as a professional golfer. He started out winning two tournaments in his rookie season on the Tour, including his first event, the Northern Telecom Tucson Open. Only three other golfers, Marty Fleckman in 1967, Ben Crenshaw in 1973 and Garrett Willis in 2001, have won their first PGA event. He is possibly most well known for holing his second shot from the fairway on the tough 18th hole at the 1990 Nestle Invitational where his second shot went in giving him a one stroke win over Greg Norman. A plaque has been placed in the fairway commemorating the 176 yard 7-iron that Gamez holed. In 1998, he was injured in a car accident at the Kemper Open. Between 1998 and 2001, he failed to finish in the top 125. His career hit a low point in 2001, when he failed to qualify for the Tour. Then he began to enjoy a resurgence in his career. He finished in the top-125 every year between 2002-2005 including a T-5 at the Bank of America Colonial in 2004 and a win at the 2005 Valero Texas Open. It was his first win in 15 years, 6 months (394 events), a PGA Tour record. His best finish in a major is a T-12 at the 1990 British Open.
