Howard K. Clark (born 26 August 1954) is an English professional golfer who played on the European Tour for many years and had his most successful period in the mid-1980s.
Clark was born in Leeds, England. He learned the game from his father, who was a scratch amateur. He won the 1971 Boys Amateur Championship and played for Great Britain & Ireland in the 1973 Walker Cup. He turned professional that year and joined the European Tour in 1974. His first professional tournament win came in the 1976 TPD Under-25s Championship and his first win on the European Tour was two years later at the 1978 Portuguese Open. Clark's final tally of European Tour wins was eleven, including pairs of wins in four consecutive seasons from 1984 to 1987. He also won the individual title at the World Cup of Golf in 1985. His best placing on the Order of Merit was third, which he achieved in both 1984 and 1986. His form fell away in the early 1990s, but revived for a time in the middle of that decade, and he made the top twenty of on the Order of Merit in 1994 and 1995. His last season on the tour was 1999 and he subsequently worked as an on course commentator for BBC Sport before moving to Sky Sports.
Clark played in the Ryder Cup six times and was on three winning European teams and also the 1989 team which tied the match and retained the Cup.
