Wayne Desmond Grady (born 26 July 1957) is an Australian professional golfer.

Born in Brisbane, Grady turned professional in 1978. He is best known for his PGA Championship win, one of golf's four majors, in 1990. He was also runner-up at The Open Championship in 1989, losing in the first four-hole playoff to Mark Calcavecchia.

Grady first gained membership of U.S.-based PGA Tour at its 1984 Qualifying School, and he spent most of his career playing predominantly in America. He also played intermittently on the European Tour, picking up one win, the 1984 German Open.

As of 2005 Grady is director of the PGA Tour of Australasia. He owns a golf course design business and a golf tour company, and has worked as a commentator for the BBC's televised golf coverage since 2000.
