Jeffrey Laurence Overton (born May 28, 1983) is an American professional golfer.
During the final PGA Tour event of 2008, the Children's Miracle Network Classic, Overton was ten days removed from an appendectomy and was ranked 125th, barely hanging on to a full-season exemption. A 21st place finish moved him up to 118th and he retained his card for 2009. After improving to 76th in 2009, Overton's 2010 season included three seconds, two thirds, and 11th at the 2010 Open Championship. He ended 2010 in 12th place on the PGA Tour money list.
His best finish on Tour are four 2nd place finishes; in 2007, he tied for 2nd at the Wyndham Championship, and in 2010, he finished 2nd at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, the HP Byron Nelson Championship and the inaugural Greenbrier Classic. In the Greenbrier, he held a three-shot lead after 54 holes but could not withstand an amazing 4th round by Stuart Appleby, who shot a round of 59 to win his 9th PGA Tour event. Following this tournament Overton reached the top 50 of the Official World Golf Rankings for the first time. His strong 2010 season earned him a place on the United States Ryder Cup team, becoming the first-ever American to make the team without a victory on the PGA Tour.
