Alfred John Mengert (born June 21, 1928) is an American former professional golfer.
Born and raised in Spokane, Washington, Mengert played football at Gonzaga Prep, briefly attended Stanford University in the late 1940s, and served in the Washington Air National Guard and U.S. Air Force in the early 1950s. Mengert was runner-up in the 1952 U.S. Amateur to Jack Westland.
Mengert turned professional in 1952 and worked mainly as a club pro while also playing on the PGA Tour. He won several non-PGA Tour events. His best finish in a major came at the 1958 Masters Tournament. After three rounds, he was tied for fourth, two shots off the lead, and finished tied for ninth. Mengert was the first round leader at the U.S. Open in 1966 at the Olympic Club in San Francisco. He was tied for seventh after 54 holes, but a final round 81 resulted in a tie for 26th place.
Mengert played several tournaments on the Senior PGA Tour in the 1980s, and was inducted into the Pacific Northwest Golf Association's Hall of Fame in 2001.
After turning pro in 1952, Mengert's first job was as an assistant club pro under Masters champion Claude Harmon at Winged Foot, north of New York City. He was a head pro at clubs in New Jersey, St. Louis, and Sacramento. Mengert returned to the Northwest as the head pro at Tacoma Country Club in the 1960s then went to Oakland Hills in the suburbs north of Detroit, Michigan.
