Tyler George (born October 6, 1982 in Duluth, Minnesota) is an American curler. He was a member of the 2010 American national championship team.

George went to junior nationals on three occasions, but was never successful. He was invited to be the alternate on the 2001 U.S. national junior team skipped by Andy Roza which won a bronze medal at the 2001 World Junior Curling Championships.

George has played in three national championships. At the 2010 United States Men's Curling Championship, George played lead for the Pete Fenson rink which won. The team would represent the United States at the 2010 Capital One World Men's Curling Championship, where they finished fourth.

George left the Fenson rink in 2010 to form his own team consisting of Chris Plys, Rich Ruohonen and Phill Drobnick. They played in the 2011 US Nationals, where he went through the round robin with a 7-2 win-loss record. He was defeated by Pete Fenson in the 1 vs. 2 playoffs and in the final.

Upon their semifinal win at the 2013 United States Men's Curling Championship, George and his team were qualified to participate at the 2014 United States Olympic Curling Trials.[1]
