Kris Blanks (born November 3, 1972) is an American professional golfer who currently plays on the PGA Tour and previously played on the Nationwide Tour.

Blanks was born in Warner Robins, Georgia. He attended Huntingdon College.

Blanks played on the Nationwide Tour in 2005, 2007, and 2008. His best finish was a win at the 2008 Bank of America Open. In 2008, he finished 13th on the Nationwide Tour Money List and thus earned his PGA Tour card for 2009 for finishing in the top 25.

He has played on the PGA Tour since 2009. He finished in second place at the 2010 Puerto Rico Open. In 2011, he finished the RBC Canadian Open in a tie with Sean O'Hair and went on to lose the sudden death playoff to finish second.

Blanks was arrested on June 30, 2013 after he attempted to carry a gun on board a plane at Palm Beach International Airport.[1] The charges were later dropped.

In March 2014, Blanks won his second event on the Tour with a sudden death playoff victory at the Chitimacha Louisiana Open over Brett Stegmaier.
