Andrew Murray (born 30 June 1956) is an English professional golfer.

Murray was born in Manchester. He turned professional in 1972. He played on the European Tour from the 1979 through 1995 before calling time on his career, after suffering from spondylitis for many years.[1] He recorded only one win on the European Tour, at the 1989 Panasonic European Open. That season, he finished a career best 28th on the Order of Merit.

Murray has since worked as a commentator and analyst for the BBC. After turning 50, he has combined that work with a return to tournament golf on the European Seniors Tour.

Murray's son Tom plays on the European Tour and the Challenge Tour.
