Iain Pyman (born 3 March 1973) is an English golfer.

Pyman was born in Whitby. He was English Boys Stroke Play Champion in 1991, and played in a winning Jacques Léglise Trophy team the same year. In 1993 he won The Amateur Championship by defeating Paul Page after 37 holes at Royal Portrush, and was the leading amateur in The Open Championship at Royal St George's. He played in the Walker Cup at the end of 1993, before turning professional the following year.

Pyman has had an up and down career, fluctuating between seasons on the main European Tour and seasons on the second tier Challenge Tour. He has won eight tournaments on the Challenge Tour, more than any other player, but has not won at the top level. He won the ECCO Tour Championship and the Telia Challenge Waxholm in back-to-back weeks on the Challenge Tour in 2007.
