Mohammad Siddikur Rahman (Bengali: মোহাম্মদ সিদ্দিকুর রহমান) (born 20 November 1984) is a Bangladeshi professional golfer who plays on the Asian Tour

As an amateur, Siddikur won twelve events in Asia, winning five times in Bangladesh, two in Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and Nepal and one in India. Siddikur turned professional in 2005 and joined the Professional Golf Tour of India in 2006. He picked up his first win on tour in 2008 at the PGTI Players Championship at Poona Golf Club and he picked up his second victory two months later at the HUDA-GTPL – Unitech Haryana Open. Siddikur won his third event in 2009 at The Global Green Bangalore Open and his fourth event in 2010 at the American Express Bangladesh Open.

Siddikur, nicknamed the Tiger Woods of Bangladesh, joined the Asian Tour in 2009 after finishing in the top 40 at qualifying school. He finished 84th on the Order of Merit for the 2009 season. Siddikur became the first Bangladeshi golfer to win an Asian Tour event at the Brunei Open in August 2010.[1] Siddikur went to a playoff with South African Jbe' Kruger and defeated him on the first extra hole. Kruger missed a 10-foot par putt to extend the playoff.
