Johnny Ray "John" Huston (born June 1, 1961) is an American professional golfer who currently plays on the PGA Tour.

Huston was born in Mt. Vernon, Illinois. He attended Auburn University in Auburn, Alabama and was a member of the golf team. He turned pro in 1983.

Huston has won seven PGA Tour events and has had more than 80 top-10 finishes in his career. He has a history of being a "streaky" player, who either plays extremely well or mediocre. At the 1998 United Airlines Hawaiian Open, he broke a 53 year-old record for 72-hole scoring by shooting 260, a 28-under-par performance. He also had a course-record 61 at the 1996 Memorial Tournament. He finished in the top-100 on the money list every year but one during the first 17 years of his career.

Huston's best finish in a major championship was T3 at the 1990 Masters; he also had a solo 4th place finish at the 2000 U.S. Open. He has featured in the top 20 of the Official World Golf Rankings.

Huston has a reputation for playing very quickly. Commentator Gary McCord has described Huston as the Tour's fastest golfer, with no one a close second. He lives in the greater Tampa Bay area.
