Steve Webster (born 17 January 1975) is an English professional golfer.

Webster was born in Nuneaton, Warwickshire and was raised in nearby Atherstone. He finished tied for 24th place in the 1995 Open Championship at St Andrews, winning the silver medal as low amateur ahead of Tiger Woods.[1] He turned professional later that year.

Webster was medalist at the 1995 European Tour Qualifying School. He finished in 129th place on the Order of Merit in his rookie season, just missing out on retaining his playing privileges and forcing him to return to qualifying school, where he was again successful. Since 1997 he has made the top 100 on the Order of Merit every season, to comfortably retain his place on Europe's elite tour.

In 2005 Webster won his first European Tour title at the Telecom Italia Open,[1] and finished a career best 29th on the Order of Merit. In 2007 he won his second European Tour event at the Portugal Masters.[2]

Webster was a member of the winning Great Britain & Ireland team at the 2002 Seve Trophy and again in 2009.
