Lu Liang-Huan (Chinese: 呂良煥, born 10 December 1936), or "Mr. Lu" as he came to be known to British golf fans, was a successful Taiwanese golfer who won several important tournaments on the Asian and European circuits between 1959 and 1987.

Lu was born in Taipei. He became the first winner of the Hong Kong Open in 1959, the tournament devised by former Australian Open champion Eric Cremin and featuring, among others, Bob Charles and Kel Nagle. He would become a regular winner on the Asian circuit (as it was known before the establishment of the formal Asian Tour in 1995), winning his own country's national Open on four occasions. He also played on the Japan Golf Tour, winning nine times between 1971 and 1987.

His finest year was 1971, when he finished runner-up to Lee Trevino in the The Open at Royal Birkdale, then the following week won the French Open at Biarritz. He also won in Thailand and Japan that season. In 1972, he and countryman Hsieh Min-Nan teamed up to win the World Cup at Royal Melbourne Golf Club, Taiwan's sole victory in the event.

  • Note: Lu's win in the Open de France pre-dates the formation of the European Tour. The Hong Kong Open became a European Tour event in 2001, but victories in the event prior to that year are not considered official wins on the tour.
