Brian George Charles Huggett, MBE (born 18 November 1936) is a Welsh professional golfer. In 2006 he was inducted into the Welsh Sports Hall of Fame. Huggett turned professional in 1951 and won sixteen events on the European circuit, including two after the formal start of the European Tour in 1972. He topped the Order or Merit in 1968 and was the third-highest money winner in the first season of the formal tour. He finished third in the Open Championship in 1962, albeit a full thirteen shots behind runaway winner Arnold Palmer, but in 1965 finished second, two shots behind Australia's Peter Thomson at Royal Birkdale. In 1970 he was ranked among the top ten players in the world in McCormack's World Golf Rankings, the forerunner of the modern World Ranking.
