Robert Bryan Gilder (born December 31, 1950) is an American professional golfer. He won six tournaments in his PGA Tour career and currently plays on the Champions Tour where he has ten wins.

Gilder was born in Corvallis, Oregon and attended Corvallis High School. He later attended Arizona State University and walked on to the golf team there, later becoming the 1973 Western Athletic Conference individual golf champion. He turned pro later that year and found success on the Tour quite rapidly, winning six tournaments between 1976 and 1983, including three in 1982. Gilder was a mainstay on the PGA Tour for many years, although he never won another tournament. He played on the 1983 Ryder Cup team.

What Gilder may be best remembered for was his final hole double eagle at the 1982 Manufacturers Hanover Westchester Classic. It took place during that tournament's third round.
