Scott Jamieson was a standout amateur golfer. He won the 2001 Scottish Boys Stroke Play Championship as a 17-year old in 2001. He crossed the pond to play collegiate golf on a scholarship at Augusta State University – a NCAA Division II school in Augusta, Georgia.
Jamieson moved back to Europe and turned professional after college and began playing on the PGA Euro Tour – a tour one level below the Challenge Tour (the European equivalent to the Web.com Tour). Jamieson won twice on the PGA Euro Tour in 2009 and won the season-long Order of Merit (money title). Jamieson also played a series of Challenge Tour events at the end of 2009 and quickly posted four top-20 finishes. His combined efforts on the two tours gave him full Challenge Tour privileges for the 2010 season.
Jamieson’s momentum carried into the next season. He finished in 14th place on the Challenge Tour money list at the end of 2010 and earned his European Tour card for the 2011 season.
After waiting a long time to play on one of the premier tours in the world, Jamieson came out of the blocks fast in 2011 with two top 10’s in his first six starts. His momentum carried into the summer where he recorded 3rd place finishes in the Open de Espana, the BMW International Open and the Scottish Open. These performances qualified Jamieson for his first professional Major – the Open Championship.
Jamieson captured his first European Tour win in December 2012 at the Nelson Mandela Championship. The very next week he added a 2nd place finish at the Volvo Golf Championship, where he unfortunately blew a 5-shot lead as play began in the final round.
Jamieson has earned 189,000 Euros through the end of July in the 2015 season, placing him in 96th place on the European Tour’s Race to Dubai.
