Richard McEvoy (born 13 June 1979) is an English professional golfer.

McEvoy was born in Shoeburyness, Essex. His amateur wins included the 2001 Lytham Trophy, and the 2001 Irish Amateur Open Stroke Play Championship. He was a member of the 2001 Great Britain & Ireland Walker Cup team, and turned professional at the end of the year.

McEvoy won two third-tier PGA EuroPro Tour events in 2002, before gaining a European Tour card at the 2003 final qualifying school where he was also medalist. He has played several seasons on the tour, but never made enough money in a season to retain his card, until 2010. He regained privileges via the second tier Challenge Tour Rankings in 2005, having won the Panasonic Panama Open during that season, qualifying school in 2006 and through the Challenge Tour again in 2009.
