Robert John Toski, born Algustoski (born September 18, 1926), is an American golfer and teacher.

He was born in Haydenville, Massachusetts of Polish descent. He learned to play at Northampton Country Club, where he caddied and two of his elder brothers were assistant professionals. He joined the PGA Tour in 1949 and was the leading money winner in 1954, winning four times including $50,000 at World Championship of Golf. He left the tour aged thirty so he could spend more time with his young family (perhaps influenced by having lost his own mother at age six), and took a series of jobs as a club professional.

Later he found renewed fame as a leading golf coach, helping pros such as Tom Kite, Bruce Crampton and Judy Rankin. He also wrote several books and made some of the earliest golf instruction videos. In the early 1980’s he was a regular on NBC Sports golf telecasts. He was the first living instructor inducted into the World Golf Teachers Hall of Fame and he is also a member of the National Polish-American Hall of Fame.
