Jeff Brehaut (born June 13, 1963) is an American professional golfer.
Brehaut turned professional in 1986 and played on mini-tours until he started playing full-time on the Nationwide Tour in 1993. He played on the Nationwide Tour from 1993–98, picking up his only two wins in 1995 and 1997. He graduated from PGA Tour Q-School at the end of 1998 with a T23.
Brehaut played his first full season on the PGA Tour in 1999, but was unable to keep his card. He played a select few events on the Nationwide Tour in 2000, but failed to make any cuts. He got his PGA Tour card again for 2001-07, with his best season being 2005 where he made 16 of 33 cuts, had 5 top-10s and earned $1,217,061.
Brehaut last played full-time on the PGA Tour in 2007, where he made 8 cuts in 21 events and lost his PGA Tour card. He has been back playing the Nationwide Tour full-time since the 2008 season. He achieved his first top-5 finish since May 2008 with a T5 effort at the 2010 Chattanooga Classic in October.
He has over $3,700,000 in career earnings on the PGA Tour and over $600,000 in Nationwide Tour career earnings.
Brehaut, who earned his spot through a regional qualifying event, was the co-leader at the 2009 U.S. Open on Thursday's first round which was rained out due to torrential rain. Brehaut was at -1 through 11 holes at Bethpage Black golf course. He finished tied for 58th.
Brehaut finished 2nd at the Champions Tour qualifying tournament in December 2012 and is eligible to compete once he turns 50 on June 13, 2013. His first senior event will be the Encompass Championship near Chicago in mid-June.
