Lam Chih Bing (born 29 September 1976) is a Singaporean professional golfer.

Lam was a scratch golfer at seventeen, and attended the University of Arizona in the United States before completing an MBA at the University of Leicester in England, following his ambition to become a fund manager.[1] Instead he began a professional golf career, joining the Asian Tour in 2001. In his first seven seasons Lam struggled to retain his card, never finishing inside the top 60 on the Order of Merit, but 2008 was his breakthrough year, with four top-10s and a maiden tour win at the prestigious season-ending Volvo Masters of Asia.
