Paul McGinley (Irish: Pól Mac Fhionnghaile; born 16 December 1966) is an Irish golfer who plays on the European Tour. He is most famous for holing the winning putt for the European team in the 2002 Ryder Cup. He currently resides in Sunningdale, England.

McGinley was born in Dublin. He turned professional in 1991. He has won four events on the European Tour and won the World Cup of Golf for Ireland with Pádraig Harrington (who attended the same secondary school, Coláiste Éanna, as McGinley) in 1997. His best finish on the European Tour Order of Merit is third in 2005 and he has featured in the top twenty of the Official World Golf Rankings.

McGinley famously offered a handshake to J. J. Henry as Henry lined up a long putt to half their 2006 Ryder Cup match at the K Club, an action prompted by the incursion of a streaker on the final green.
