Hall of Fame:
Class of 2002

Robert Damron currently plays on the PGA Tour and was inducted into the UCF Athletics Hall of Fame in 2002.

Damron played from 1991-94 before leaving to turn professional. He was a three-time honorable mention All-American and set the school record for the most wins in school history with five, including the prestigious invitation-only John Hancock All-American Tournament and the Sun Belt Conference Tournament as a freshman.

Damron helped the team to two NCAA Regional berths and competed at the Regional as an individual the third year. He holds the school 54-hole scoring record and is second to Andrew Rice in career scoring average. He was the first from UCF to make it full-time to the PGA Tour and the first to win a tournament there, defeating Scott Verplank in a playoff at the 2001 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.
