Lee Scott James (born 27 January 1973) is an English ex-professional golfer.

James was born in Poole, Dorset. He won the 1994 Amateur Championship with a 2 & 1 victory over Gordon Sherry. He turned professional the following year after the Walker Cup, where he was part of the victories Great Britain and Ireland team.

Having been unsuccessful at gaining a place on the European Tour via qualifying school, James began his professional career on the second tier Challenge Tour, picking up his first win at the 1996 1st Modena Classic Open. He finally graduated to the elite tour by finishing top of the 2002 Challenge Tour Rankings, with three wins during the season. He was unable to retain his tour card, and returned to the Challenge Tour in 2004.

16th place in the 2006 Challenge Tour Rankings followed by success at final qualifying school in 2007 gave James another two seasons at the top level, but both times he was unable to earn sufficient money to maintain his playing status. In 2009, he won his fifth Challenge Tour title at the Allianz Open Côtes d'Armor Bretagne.

James was reinstated as an amateur in 2016.[1]
