Andrew Dodt (born 26 January 1986) is an Australian professional golfer who plays on the European, Asian and PGA Tour of Australasia Tours.

Dodt was born in Queensland, Australia and learned to play golf from the age of four at Gatton Golf Club, close to where he lived. He was a member of the Golf Australia National Squad and won many high-profile amateur tournaments including the 2007 Australian Amateur Stroke Play. That win gave Dodt a spot in the 2007 MFS Australian Open at The Australian Golf Club in December. He turned professional at the conclusion of that tournament, and joined the Asian Tour for the 2008 season.

Dodt finished his début season ranked 43rd on the Order of Merit, and improved to 15th in 2009. He won his first professional tournament at the 2010 Avantha Masters, which was co-sanctioned with the European Tour.[1]

In February 2015, Dodt won on the European Tour for the first time in five years at the True Thailand Classic, with a one stroke victory over Scott Hend and Thongchai Jaidee. He came from four shots behind in the final round with a five-under-par round to claim the victory.[2]
