Kristy McPherson (born May 28, 1981) is an American professional golfer, currently playing on the LPGA Tour.

A native of South Carolina, McPherson was diagnosed at age 11 with Still's disease, a form of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. Confined mostly to bed and unable to walk for a year, she was told she would no longer be able to compete in any sport that required jumping or running. As a result, she took up golf and played on the boy's golf team at her high school. She earned a golf scholarship to the University of South Carolina, and recorded seven victories in her four-year collegiate career. McPherson graduated in 2003 with a bachelor's degree in Sports and Entertainment Management.

After graduating from college, McPherson turned professional and competed on the Futures Tour. From 2003 to 2006 she competed in 60 events, never missed a cut, and won twice,. Her fourth place finish on the Futures Tour money list in 2006 earned her an LPGA Tour card for the 2007 season.
