Matthew Baldwin (born 26 February 1986) is an English professional golfer who plays on the European Tour.

Baldwin was captain of the England Boys side before turning professional in 2008. In 2009 he played on the third-tier Alps Tour and finished 23rd on the Order of Merit, with six top-ten finishes. He made several appearances on the second-tier Challenge Tour in 2010, and performed well enough to finish 82nd on the final standings and gain full status for 2011. In October 2011, he won for the first time on the Challenge Tour at the Fred Olsen Challenge de España. This sealed his promotion to the main European Tour for 2012. He played well enough in his first full season to retain his playing rights, finishing 72nd on the Order of Merit.

Baldwin is from Southport, Lancashire - the same home town as fellow professional golfer Tommy Fleetwood.[1] His grandfather is the former rugby league player Ron Ryder.[2]
