Noh Seung-yul (Korean: 노승열; born 29 May 1991), or Seung-yul Noh is a South Korean professional golfer.

Noh turned professional in 2007 and successfully negotiated qualifying school for the 2008 Asian Tour. He won the Midea China Classic that season, and was named Asian Tour rookie of the year. In 2010 he won the Maybank Malaysian Open which was co-sanctioned with the European Tour. The win made him the second youngest winner (18 years, 282 days) ever on the European Tour after Danny Lee (18 years, 213 days).[1]

He finished 2010 as the leader of the Asian Tour money list, and ranked 34th on the European Tour Order of Merit.

In December 2011, Noh finished T3 at the PGA Tour Q-School to earn his tour card for the 2012 season. This marked the first time that Noh had earned a full membership on the PGA Tour.

In 2012, he finished 49th on the PGA Tour money list and 37th in the FedEx Cup playoffs to retain his card for 2013. In 2013, he finished 153rd on the money list and missed the FedEx Cup playoffs. He played in the Web.com Tour Finals and finished fourth to regain his card for 2014.

On 27 April 2014, he won the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, one month shy of his 23rd birthday. This was his first PGA Tour victory and he was the youngest winner on the PGA Tour in 2014.[2]
