As
an amateur player, Steve Webster won the 1993 Peter McEvoy Trophy. In 1995, he
tied 24th in the Open Championship at St Andrews, and began a career
as a professional golfer after winning the European Tour Qualifying School. In
1996, he gained only a 129th position on the European Tour and so
returned to Qualifying School – where he regained membership of the Tour. Since
then, he has continued to perform well, falling within the top 100 on the Order
of Merit each year.

In
2002, Steve Webster appeared on the winning Great Britain & Ireland team
for the Seve Trophy.

In
2005, Steve Webster won his first European Tour event at the Telecom Italia
Open. As a result of this victory, he made it into the top 30 – ranking number
29 – on the European Order of Merit list. Webster’s second European Tour
victory came in 2007, with a win in the inaugural Portugal Masters at Oceanico Victoria Golf Club.
