Grégory Havret (born 25 November 1976) is a French professional golfer.

Amateur career[edit]

Havret won the French Amateur Championship three years in a row from 1997 to 1999, and in 1999 he won the European Amateur. He also won a minor professional tournament as an amateur, the 1998 Omnium National.

Professional career[edit]

Havret turned professional in 1999 and won a place on the European Tour at the 2000 Qualifying School. He finished 60th on the Order of Merit in 2001, his rookie season, recording a maiden tour victory at the Italian Open. Havret's biggest win to date came in the 2007 Barclays Scottish Open at Loch Lomond, where he overcame major winner Phil Mickelson in a playoff. In August 2008, Havret recorded a second tournament victory in Scotland (third overall), leading the Johnnie Walker Championship at Gleneagles at the end of every round in recording a one shot win over Graeme Storm.

Havret's best year-end ranking on the Order of Merit is 19th in 2007. In 2008 Havret reached the top 100 of the Official World Golf Ranking and established himself as the highest ranked French golfer.

As a qualifier and ranked 391 in the world, Havret was the runner-up at the 2010 U.S. Open at Pebble Beach Golf Links, California, finishing one stroke behind Graeme McDowell.[2]

In 2024, Havret was by the French Golf Federation appointed head of men's elite golf in France.[3]
