Michael Paul Springer (born November 3, 1965) is an American professional golfer who has played on the PGA Tour and the Nationwide Tour.

Springer was born in San Francisco, California. He attended the University of Arizona. He turned pro in 1988[1] and joined the PGA Tour in 1991.

Springer began his career in professional golf on the Ben Hogan Tour, an predecessor of what later became the Web.com Tour. He won three events in this venue in 1990 (including the tour's very first event in Bakersfield[2]) and one in 1992. His first PGA Tour win came as a wire-to-wire victory in 1994 at the KMart Greater Greensboro Open. His career year was 1994 when he won two PGA Tour events, earned $770,711, and finished 13th on the money list. Springer has 22 top-10 finishes in PGA Tour events.[3] His best finish in a major is a T-24 at the 1994 British Open.[4]

In the 2000s, Springer split his playing time between the PGA Tour and the Nationwide Tour.[3] He lives in Fresno, California.
