Mi Jung "M.J." Hur (Korean: 허미정, born 5 December 1989) is a South Korean female professional golfer.

Hur played most of her amateur career in South Korea. In 2006, she received a sponsors exemption to play in the Hana Bank-KOLON Championship and made the most of it by finishing T6.

It was late in 2007 that Hur turned professional. She played the Futures Tour and notched one victory at the Louisiana Pelican Classic.[2] Hur's 4th-place finish on the 2008 Futures Tour money list earned her a LPGA Tour card.

Hur's first win on the LPGA Tour was at the 2009 Safeway Classic. She defeated Suzann Pettersen and Michele Redman in a playoff.[3]
