Mosey was born in Keighley, West Riding of Yorkshire, and is the son of cricket writer Don Mosey. He turned professional in 1972 and spent almost twenty years on the European Tour, during which his best Order of Merit ranking was 29th, achieved in both 1984 and 1986. He won two tournaments on the European Tour, the 1980 Merseyside International Open and the 1984 Monte Carlo Open.[1]

Mosey also played in South Africa in the offseason and won two titles in nearby countries. He joined the European Seniors Tour in 2001, but has not won at that level.
