In 1990, Jobe led the order of merit on the Canadian Tour. He won membership of the PGA Tour for 1991 via Qualifying School, but only made five cuts that year. After a few unsettled seasons, during which he won the 1994 Thailand Open he established himself on the Japan Golf Tour, where he played from 1995 to 1999 and won six tournaments. He returned to the PGA Tour as special temporary member in September 1999. He has played steadily despite a freak accident in his garage at home. After slicing his hand and severing several fingers with a shattered push broom, Jobe had significant hand and wrist surgery in 2003. He never won on the PGA Tour, but has tied for second place four times, including two in 2005 when he played on a major medical exemption.
Jobe has featured in the top 50 of the Official World Golf Rankings.
Jobe finished 30th on the Nationwide Tour in 2010, which was not enough for a PGA Tour Card, but exempted him through the final stage of Q School, where he finished tied for sixth and earned his 2011 card. In June 2011, Jobe achieved his best finish in six years when he tied for second at the Memorial Tournament, one stroke behind Steve Stricker.
Jobe won the Champions Tour qualifying school to earn his tour card for 2016.. On June 11 2017, he recorded his first Champions Tour victory at the Principal Charity Classic with a 14-under-par score of 202.
