John Schroeder (born November 12, 1945) is an American professional golfer who has played on the PGA Tour, Nationwide Tour and Champions Tour.


Schroeder was born in Great Barrington, Massachusetts, the son of tennis great Ted Schroeder. He attended the University of Michigan and was a member of the golf team, an All-American in 1968. He turned pro in 1969.

Schroeder had 34 top-10 finishes in PGA Tour events including a win at the 1973 U.S. Professional Match Play Championship. He finished the 1979 Bay Hill Citrus Classic tied for first in regulation play; however, he lost in a playoff to Bob Byman. In his late forties, he played some on the Nationwide Tour to prepare for the Champions Tour. His best Nationwide Tour finish was a solo 5th in the 1995 NIKE Utah Classic. His best finish in a major championship was T4 at the 1981 U.S. Open. He also had top-10 finishes in two British Opens in the late 1970s.

Schroeder spent most of his late thirties and forties working as an on-course reporter and analyst for ABC Sports, ESPN and NBC Sports. He joined the Champions Tour in 1996. In 2001, Schroeder won the NFL Golf Classic and the Champions Tour Comeback Player of the Year award.

Schroeder achieved great financial success as one of the original owners of Cobra Golf. He was inducted into the University of Michigan Athletic Hall of Honor in 1992, and makes his home in Del Mar, California.
