Adan Domingo Sowa (born 15 August 1954) is an Argentine professional golfer.

Sowa was born in Buenos Aires, and turned professional in 1973. He won the Argentine Open twice, in 1978 and 1983, and led the Argentine Professional Rankings on two occasions, in 1978 and 1982. He was second in the 1985 Argentine Open and the 1982 Argentine PGA Championship. In 1982, Sowa was second in the Jujuy Open on the Argentine Professional Tour, but claimed the first prize cheque because the overall winner was amateur, Luis Carbonetti.

Sowa played on the European Tour from 1978 to 1986, with a best finish of tied 6th in the Italian Open in 1986, on his way to 69th place on the Order of Merit. He played in the British Open three times, in 1978, 1979 and 1986.

Sowa currently competes on the European Seniors Tour. His best finish to date is second in the 2006 Seniors Tour Championship, held in Bahrain, where he lost out to Gordon J. Brand on the third hole of a playoff. That year he was 22nd on the season ending money list.

Sowa has represented Argentina in the World Cup on four occasions.
