Jerome Kendrick "Jerry" Pate (born September 16, 1953) is an American golfer.

Jerry Pate was born in Macon, Georgia. He later attended the University of Alabama and had a distinguished amateur career. He won the U.S. Amateur Championship in 1974 and the following year he was a member of victorious U.S. teams at the Walker Cup and the Eisenhower Trophy. He was also the low amateur at the 1975 U.S. Open.

Pate turned professional in 1975 and was the medalist at the 1975 PGA Tour Qualifying School. He had a flying start to his professional career, winning the U.S. Open, which was to be his only major championship victory, and the Canadian Open. He was selected as the Rookie of the Year and Co-Player of the Year. Six more PGA Tour victories followed between 1977 and 1982, as well as several other titles around the world. In 1981 he was a member of a victorious United States Ryder Cup team. However shoulder injuries curtailed his career and he didn't win a regular (under 50) professional title after his thirtieth birthday.

Pate later served as a broadcast analyst for ABC, CBS and the BBC and set up a golf course design practice and a turf and irrigation company. In 2006 he returned to winning ways at the Champions Tour's Outback Steakhouse Pro-Am.
