Norman D. Wood (born 8 January 1947) is a Scottish professional golfer.

Wood was born in Prestonpans. He turned professional in 1965 and played on the European Tour in the 1970s. His sole win on the European Tour came at the 1972 Italian Open. He also won the 1973 Jamaica Open. In 1975 he finished a career best eighteenth on the Order of Merit and played in the Ryder Cup, defeating Lee Trevino in his singles match. He made his one appearance for Scotland in the World Cup that same year.[1]

Back problems forced Wood to become a club professional and he worked at Sandy Lane in Barbados from 1978 and the Royal Guernsey Golf Club for many years from 1982 onwards.[1] After turning fifty he played part-time on the European Seniors Tour for several seasons.
