Daan Huizing (born 22 October 1990) is a Dutch professional golfer.

Huizing entered the European Tour qualifying school at the end of 2012. Because of his high ranking as an amateur, he was exempt from the first stage of qualifying. He made it through to the third stage where he finished 80th, earning a place in some Challenge Tour events for 2013.

Huizing won twice in 2013, at the Northern Ireland Open Challenge[1] and two weeks later at the Kharkov Superior Cup. He was also joint runner-up in the Kärnten Golf Open and finished the year in sixth place in the Challenge Tour standings, and graduated to the European Tour for 2014. Huizing had a disappointing 2014 with best finishes of tied for 12th place.

Since 2015 Huizing has mostly played on the Challenge Tour. His best finishes have been joint runner-up finishes in the 2015 Cordon Golf Open and the 2017 Viking Challenge.
