Has played in the United States for most of his career, first on the Nationwide Tour and mini-tours and then on the PGA Tour starting in 2008; first event as a pro in his native Scotland was the 2009 Scottish Open where he shot a 65 in the first round and finished 10th.

2010 Notes: Had a breakout year in his third Tour season despite not winning, but it's tough when you lose a playoff to a person that makes a hole-in-one, as Jonathan Byrd did to beat him at the Shriners Hospital Open. Was runner-up in the Justin Timberlake, an event he won in 2009, and finished 11th on FedEx Cup playoff list.
2011 Notes: Had his second win in three seasons and career-best numbers in earnings (No. 23), top 10s (six) and top 25s (11). His Arnold Palmer Invitational victory was the 300th win on the PGA Tour by a former Nationwide Tour player.
2012 Notes: Had a runner-up finish in his first start at the season opening Hyundai Tournament of Champions and at the Players Championship. Finished year 64th in the FedEx Cup standings and 36th in the money list.
2013 Notes: Shot a final round 63 at the Valero Texas Open, ending his round with three birdies to make up a five shot deficit and win by two shots over Rory McIlroy. Also finished T5th at the Players Championship. Concluded the year 74th in the FedEx Cup, marking just the second time since the 2008 season he has failed to advance to the BMW Championship.
2014 Notes: In a last bid to finish inside the top 125 in FedEx Cup standings and make the Playoffs for a sixth time, claimed a T-14th at the Wyndham Championship to finish at 127th that ended his PGA TOUR season. Only two top-15 finishes among 20 starts came in his last two events of the season. At the Barracuda Championship in Reno, was one of only two players in the field to collect double-digit points in three of the four rounds in the Modified Stableford scoring event. Geoff Ogilvy, the event's winner, was the other. In the first, third and final rounds, collected 13, 14 and 12 points, respectively. Struggled on the second day, with two bogeys and three double bogeys (or worse), costing him 11 points. An eagle at the par-5 18th (his ninth hole), made for a minus-4 total on the day. The T-6th finish was his first top-10 since a T-5th at the 2013 Players Championship.
2015 Notes: Opened the season at the Frys.com Open with matching rounds of 6-under 67 to carry a one-shot lead into the weekend. Went on to finish T-3rd (three shots behind champion Sang-Moon Bae) following a final-round, 1-under 71. At the Waste Management Phoenix Open, opened with back-to-back, 5-under 66s to take a two-stroke lead into the weekend. A third-round 68 extended his lead after 54 holes to three shots at 13-under 200. A Sunday struggle resulted in a 1-over 72 and an eventual T-5th with amateur Jon Rahm, three shots behind winner Brooks Koepka. Finished T-7th at the Farmers Insurance Open, recording his first back-to-back top 10s since stringing together three in a row in 2011, at the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship (T-10th), the Valspar Championship (T-5th) and the Arnold Palmer Invitational (won). In 24 starts made 15 cuts and had 3 top-ten finishes. Was 99th in the FedEx Cup race and 90th in the money standings.
2016 Notes: Played in 24 events and made 17 cuts. He had 3 top-ten finishes, his best was T-2nd at the RBC Canadian Open one shot back of winner Jhonattan Vegas. Was 77th in the FedExCup race and 86th in the money standings.
2017 Notes: Started his year with a Top-ten finishing T-8th at the Safeway Open. Has had three other top-tens, T-9th at CareerBuilder Challenge, T-7th Waste Management Phoenix Open and T-8th at the Genesis Open. Finished T-3rd at the Quicken Loans National 2 shots back of the playoff, but the good finish got him a spot in the Open Championship which he missed the cut in.
