Carlos Estanislao "Tano" Goya (born 1 June 1988) is an Argentine professional golfer.

After turning professional in 2007, Goya won the Tour de las Americas qualifying school by nine shots, and followed that with victory in the first event of the 2008 season, the Challenge Tour co-sanctioned Center Open, and third place in the Argentine Open. He went on to finish top of the Order of Merit that year.

That first win also gave Goya Challenge Tour membership, and he finished the season by winning the Apulia San Domenico Grand Final, which lifted him to fifth in that tours final standings, gaining exemption to the full European Tour for 2009. He won the TPG Tour Order of Merit in 2008.

In March 2009, in only his sixth start on the European Tour, Goya won the Madeira Islands Open BPI – Portugal, earning him full exemption on the tour until the end of 2010.
