Michael J. "Mick" Ryan (18 July 1897 - 1965) was an Australian amateur golfer who won the Australian Open in 1932. He also played Australian rules football for South Melbourne in the Victorian Football League (VFL).

Ryan made just one senior appearance for South Melbourne, in the 1918 VFL season, when they defeated Richmond in a game at Lake Oval.[1] South Melbourne went on to win the premiership that year.

Ryan joined the Royal Park Golf Club in 1925 and won their Championship the following year. He later went to Kingston Heath.[2]

In 2002 he was named in the Victorian Golf Team of the Century.
