Michael Daniel Reid (born July 1, 1954) is an American professional golfer.

Reid was born in Bainbridge, Maryland. He graduated from Brigham Young University in 1976 and turned professional the same year. During his collegiate golf career, Reid was selected for All-American honors from 1973-1976. He is close friends with PGA Tour player Pat McGowan, who also played for BYU.

Reid won his first PGA Tour title at the 1987 Seiko Tucson Open and the following year he won the prestigious NEC World Series of Golf. In 1989, he led the Masters Tournament with four holes to play but failed to win the tournament; he also lost the lead in that year's PGA Championship on the back nine during the final round. Mike Reid was the first professional golfer to earn one million dollars on the PGA Tour prior to winning a single tournament.

Reid became eligible to play the Champions Tour in 2004, and in 2005 he claimed his first senior title at the Senior PGA Championship, which is one of the senior majors. He would not win again on the Champions Tour again until 2009 at the JELD-WEN Tradition, another major championship in a playoff over John Cook. Reid rolled in a birdie putt on the first playoff hole. He joined a prestigious list of players whose first two wins on the Champions Tour were in major championships. Those players are Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer and Peter Jacobsen.

Reid is nicknamed "Radar" for his outstanding driving accuracy. He is a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He has six children and one grandchild.[1]
