Professional golferEdit

Price turned professional in 1989 and qualified for membership of the European Tour for the 1991 season via the 1990 Qualifying School. His best year on the tour came in 2000, when he finished eighth on the Order of Merit. His other top ten placing came in 2003, when he was tenth.

He has three tournament wins on the European Tour. In 2005 he played on the U.S.-based PGA Tour, but he did not do well enough to retain his card. He has featured in the top 50 of the Official World Golf Ranking.

Price has made one appearance in the Ryder Cup, playing for the winning European team of 2002. He beat Phil Mickelson in the final day's singles to secure an invaluable point and an historic victory.

Price played in the 2016 Senior Italian Open which started on his 50th birthday and finished second, a stroke behind Stephen Dodd. In 2017 he had his first win on the European Senior Tour, winning the WINSTONgolf Senior Open. He won the 2019 Staysure PGA Seniors Championship for his second European Senior Tour win.
