Scott Drummond (born 29 May 1974) is a British golfer.

Drummond was born in Shrewsbury in England. He played amateur golf for England but decided to represent Scotland, the country of his father, when he turned professional in 1996.

In the early years of his career Drummond struggled to win a regular place on the main European Tour, and spent a good deal of his time on the second tier Challenge Tour. In 2004 he claimed a surprise win in the prestigious Volvo PGA Championship, which catapulted him 340 places, from 435th to 95th in the world rankings,[1] and gave him a five year exemption on the European Tour.[2] He ended the season in 23rd place on the Order of Merit, and was selected as the Sir Henry Cotton Rookie of the Year.[3] He had a consistent 2005 season, but since then he has struggled to reproduce that form, finishing well outside the top 100 on the Order of Merit each season.
