Corey Allen Pavin (born November 16, 1959) is an American professional golfer on the PGA Tour. He spent over 150 weeks in the top-10 of the Official World Golf Rankings between 1986 and 1997.

Pavin was born in Oxnard, California. He attended UCLA. Pavin won two gold medals at the 1981 Maccabiah Games, the Jewish Olympics in Israel, and turned professional the following year. He quickly established himself in the sport, with three international victories in 1983, and his first PGA Tour victory at the 1984 Houston Coca-Cola Open.

He won at least one event on either the PGA Tour or the international tour nearly every year for the next decade, and topped the PGA's money list in 1991, when he was the last man to achieve this without winning at least one million dollars in prize money. Pavin's success culminated in his only major victory, the 1995 U.S. Open. Rather than marking a move to a new level of achievement, however, this was soon followed by a long slide down the world rankings from a high ranking of 5th. After Pavin won the Colonial in 1996, he did not win another PGA tournament for ten years. His 89th place finish on the 2004 money list was the first time he had made the top one hundred since 1998. Pavin finally won his fifteenth career title in 2006 at the U.S. Bank Championship in Milwaukee, ending a streak of 242 consecutive tournaments without a win.
