Jason Paul Buha (born February 6, 1975) is an American professional golfer who played on the PGA Tour and the Nationwide Tour.

Buha joined the PGA Tour in 2000, earning his card through qualifying school. He struggled during his rookie year on Tour and was unable to retain his Tour card. He joined the Nationwide Tour in 2001 where he recorded four top-10 finishes. The following year he recorded seven top-10 finishes and won the Dayton Open en route to an 11th-place finish on the money list, good enough for a PGA Tour card for 2003. He struggled in his return to the PGA Tour and returned to the Nationwide Tour in 2004. In his return to the Nationwide Tour he recorded five top-10 finished including two runner-up finishes. He would continue to play on the Nationwide Tour until 2006.

Buha was the head coach for the golf team at Birmingham–Southern College from 2009 to 2013 and is now the Assistant Director of Financial Aid.[1] He was also an on-course commentator for the Golf Channel. He opened Buha Golf Academy at the Renaissance Ross Bridge Golf Resort and Spa in Birmingham, Alabama in 2007. He closed the Academy to focus on coaching golf and working for Birmingham–Southern College.[2]

Buha currently lives in Mountain Brook, Alabama (a suburb of Birmingham).
