The first of his three European Tour wins came at the 1999 Lancome Trophy. His most successful season was 2000, when he won the Scottish PGA Championship and the Volvo Masters and finished twelfth on the European Tour Order of Merit. During this period he featured in the top 50 of the Official World Golf Rankings.He was also a member of the European team at the 2002 Ryder Cup.
In 2004 he slipped to 134th place on the Order of Merit, but he retained his tour card for 2005 thanks to a five year exemption for his Volvo Masters victory. In 2005 he recovered some of his form and finished 49th on the Order of Merit. He missed the majority of the 2006 season through injury and in 2007 he announced that he was retiring from tournament golf to concentrate on golf course design.
