Parry was born in Harrogate. His brother is named Mark and works at Collier Park Golf in Perth, Western Australia. He won several high-profile amateur tournaments including the Danish and Spanish Amateur Championships, and represented Great Britain and Ireland in the Walker Cup before turning professional at the end of 2007.

Parry won the 2009 Allianz Golf Open Grand Toulouse on the Challenge Tour. He ended that season in 14th place on the Challenge Tour Rankings to earn his card on the top level European Tour for 2010.[1] During his rookie season he won the inaugural Vivendi Cup to secure a one-year exemption on the tour.[2]
