Wallace represents The Belfry Hotel & Resort in Sutton Coldfield, England. Comes from an athletic family, with his parents being physical education teachers. Was good at all sports, including high-level cricket, football, and rugby. Began taking golf seriously at age 18. After finishing school in 2008, Wallace spent a couple of years working in a clothing store and played a bit of golf. His father discussed with him that it was time to decide on a direction his life would take. Wallace decided to go to America and attend Jacksonville State in Alabama. His friend Danny Willett was there, and he loved the thought of living in America. Despite being the No. 1 player on the Jacksonville team, Wallace decided to leave the program. He returned home and was a bit lost on what to do. He tried to get into golf management but couldn't find any opportunities, so he turned professional and played in mini-tour events around England. He contemplated giving up but decided to play on the Alps Tour. In 2016, he won six tournaments on the tour, including winning five times in five consecutive starts along with winning the Order of Merit. This enabled him to join the Challenge Tour in 2017. He also had a chance meeting with ISM agent Chubby Chandler, and they hit it off. Chandler gave him the opportunity he needed, securing an invitation for Wallace to play at the Nordea Masters in 2016. Wallace signed with ISM, and it was the confidence he needed.
He started 2017 by finishing T-3rd at the Barclays Kenya Open. In May, he won the 2017 Open de Portugal, a dual-ranking event with the main European Tour. As a result of this win, he earned a promotion to the European Tour for the rest of the year.
2017 Notes: Played 22 European Tour events, making 14 cuts. He had five top-10 finishes, including a win at the Open de Portugal. Was 70th in the Race to Dubai. He also qualified and played in his first major, the U.S. Open, but missed the cut.
2018 Notes: Played 30 European Tour events and made 25 cuts with six top-10 finishes. He claimed his first European Tour victory by defeating Andrew Johnston on the first hole of a playoff to win the Hero Indian Open. Wallace won for a second time with a one-stroke victory at the BMW International over Thorbjorn Olesen, Martin Kaymer, and Mikko Korhonen. He won for a third time at the Made in Denmark, defeating Jonathan Thomason, Steven Brown, and Lee Westwood. He ended the year with a T-5th at the Nedbank Golf Challenge and a T-2nd at the DP World Tour Championship, Dubai, where he finished two strokes behind winner Danny Willett. He ranked 10th in the Race to Dubai. In 2016, he ended the year 1,168th in the Official World Golf Ranking. After his runner-up finish in Dubai to end 2018, he was 44th, which opened many doors for 2019.
2019 Notes: Played in 27 European Tour events, making 24 cuts with seven top-10 finishes. Was 7th in the Race to Dubai.
