Marc Warren (born 1 April 1981) is a Scottish professional golfer.

Warren was born in Rutherglen, South Lanarkshire. As an amateur he was a member of East Kilbride Golf Club, and he was awarded honorary life membership of the club in February 2002. After competing in the 2001 Walker Cup, where he holed the winning putt, he turned professional in 2002.

Warren began his professional career on the second tier Challenge Tour, and finished top of the Challenge Tour Rankings in 2005, to graduate directly to the European Tour. He claimed his first European Tour title during his first season, at the EnterCard Scandinavian Masters. He finished his début season 42nd on the Order of Merit, and was named the European Tour's Sir Henry Cotton Rookie of the Year.[1] At the end of the year, he partnered Colin Montgomerie to second place for Scotland in the 2006 WGC-World Cup, after losing out to Germany in a playoff.[2]

In 2007 Warren captured the Johnnie Walker Championship at Gleneagles, after overcoming Simon Wakefield on the second hole of a sudden death playoff. Again he finished the season ranked 42nd on the Order of Merit. In November, he partnered Montgomerie for the second time in the Omega Mission Hills World Cup, and this time the pair won the tournament, defeating the American team in a sudden death playoff.[3]
