Owen turned pro in 1992 at the age of twenty. It wasn’t until 1997 that the Englishman obtained a European Tour card through Q School. He played on the European Tour from 1998 until 2004 and he finished within the top 100 on the money list every single season. He joined four other golfers for being the only players to score an albatross in a Major Championship when Owen holed out for double eagle at the 2001 British Open at Royal Lytham. He won his first and only main Tour event in 2003 when he won the British Masters by three shots. His best finish on the European Tour money list was 21st in 2003.
Owen decided to try his hand at the PGA Tour. He qualified for the PGA Tour card at 2004 Q School. In his rookie season, he had three top 10 finishes including a third place at what was only his third ever PGA Tour event, the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. He finished his rookie season 57th on the money list. He came close to winning his first PGA Tour title the next season when he looked to have the Bay Hill Invitational within his grasp. After three putting from three feet at the 17th – the only time he has done this in his career – Owen finished one shot behind Rod Pampling. This still haunts the Englishman to this day.
He lost his card and won it back a number of times over the next few seasons. He played well in 2012 when he registered 3 top 10s and finished 85th on the money list. He lost his card again in 2013. Owen captured his first win on US soil in 2014 when capturing the United Leasing Championship on the Nationwide Tour. He won his card for the 2015 PGA Tour season after a solid season.
