Lindy Miller (born July 6, 1956) is an American professional golfer who has played on the PGA Tour, Ben Hogan Tour, and Champions Tour.


Miller was born, raised and has lived most of his life in Fort Worth, Texas. During his teens, he won the 1973 Fort Worth Junior Golf Association Championship. Miller attended Oklahoma State University and was a distinguished member of the golf team — an All-American for all four years (1975–1978), a first-team All-American his last three years and winner of the Haskins Award in 1978. Miller's college teammates included future PGA Tour Champions David Edwards and Bob Tway. Miller and Edwards led the Cowboys to victory at the 1976 and 1978 NCAA Championships. At the 1978 Masters, Miller posted a two-under-par 286 – the lowest total for an amateur since 1961. He turned professional in 1978.

Miller played on both the PGA and Ben Hogan Tours during his regular career years. He won the 1990 Ben Hogan Amarillo Open. His best finish on the PGA Tour was second at the 1979 Tallahassee Open and his best finish in a major was a T-16 at The Masters in 1978. After retiring as a touring professional, he became director of golf at Fort Worth's Mira Vista Golf Club. In 1988, Miller played himself in the film, Dead Solid Perfect, which followed the life of a professional golfer on the PGA Tour.

At the 2007 North Texas PGA Senior Championship, Miller shot a competitive course record 63 in the final round on his way to winning the tournament.
