Herbert Reese Weaver (January 13, 1932 – May 3, 2022)[1] was an American professional golfer who played on the PGA Tour and the Senior PGA Tour.

A native of Beaumont, Texas, Weaver played collegiate golf at Louisiana State University.[2]

Weaver turned professional in 1956. He had second-place finishes at the 1961 Beaumont Open and the 1962 Carling Open before earning his first PGA Tour victory at the Jacksonville Open on March 21, 1965.[2] The event was held at the Selva Marina Country club and was attended by 15,000 people.[3] Weaver collected $8,500 for his efforts,[2] and was the first male golfer from Beaumont to win a PGA Tour event. He was in the top 100 money winners upon retiring in 1968.

Weaver played on the Senior PGA Tour from 1982 to 1984. His best finishes were a pair of T-6 at the 1983 Marlboro Classic and the 1984 du Maurier Champions. In the late 1990s, Weaver worked as an official on the Senior PGA Tour.
