Gary Evans is still to this day, the only amateur golfer to ever win the prestigious Brabazon and Lytham Trophies in the same year, and back to back in 1990 & 1991. He turned professional directly after the 1991 Walker Cup (on the same GB&I team as Padraig Harrington, Paul McGinley and Andrew Coltart) where he finished T2 at the European Tour School thus securing his Tour card.

Through the next 15 years on Tour, Gary had some highs and lows playing with all of his childhood heroes including Seve Ballesteros, Nick Faldo, Sandy Lyle, Ian Woosnam, Jose Maria Olazabal, Fred Couples, Tom Watson and Greg Norman to name just a few.

Gary’s last 3 Major Championships appearances were The Open Championships of 2002 at Muirfield, 2003 at Royal St Georges and 2004 at Royal Troon, where Evans finished 5th, 10th and 20th respectively. He played one World Golf Championship at Mount Juliet in 2003 where he finished a very respectable 15th.

Gary’s career was never an easy ride and he suffered from a number of debilitating injuries including a broken left wrist and keyhole surgery on his right shoulder, which led to his European Tour retirement in 2006.

After a 14 year sabbatical, Gary joined the Legends Tour in 2019 having turned 50 and completed his first senior tour season by finishing 18th in the Order of Merit.
