Lin Yuxin (born 12 October 2000) is a Chinese amateur golfer.
Aged 17, he qualified directly for both the 2018 Masters and the 2018 Open Championship as the 2017 Asia-Pacific Amateur champion. Playing in the first two rounds of the 2018 Masters at Augusta, Lin scored 79 and 80 for 15-over-par, which meant he missed the cut and did not qualify for the last two rounds. In the 2018 Open Championship at Carnoustie, he scored 80 and 74 for 12-over-par in the first two rounds, again missing the cut.
Lin was the first winner of the Asia-Pacific to receive a direct invitation to both the Masters and The Open Championship. Previously the winner had received an invitation to the Masters but it was only starting in 2018 that the winner also had an automatic Open entry.
In 2019, Lin won the Asia-Pacific Amateur Championship for a second time. Source
