    England born Davis, turned professional in 1994, and joined the European Tour three years later, in 1997. He began his European Tour reasonably well, and continued to play consistently over the next six years, achieving a win at the Peugeot Open de Espana in 2000. 2003 was his best season up to that point, despite the fact that he did not achieve any wins. Davis finished that season in ninth place on the European Tour Order of Merit. He experienced a couple of major highlights during that season; finishing in a sixth place tie at The Open Championship and finishing in third place at the Volvo Masters.

    Davis continued to see some success in 2004, achieving his second European Tour win at the ANZ Championship, and becoming the first player from England to be a medal winner at the PGA Tour Qualifying Tournament. The following year Davis spilt his time between playing on the European Tour and playing on the PGA Tour. This changed in 2007 when he severely restricted his appearances on the European Tour and concentrated on playing on the PGA Tour. The first two seasons of doing this were relatively successful for Davis; he finished in the top 100 on the PGA Tour money list in both seasons. In 2009 Davis continued to play consistently and finished in 43rd place on the PGA Tour money list. He received praise for calling a two-stroke penalty on himself at the Verizon Heritage in 2010, when playing the first play-off hole against Jim Furyjk; this cost Davis any chance of achieving his first Tour victory. Davis has featured in the top 50 of the World Rankings during his career.

    Away from the golf course, Davis is associated with the Skin Cancer Foundation, having twice suffered from skin cancer himself. He also supports the Arnold Palmer Hospital in Orlando where both of his children have been treated.

    As of the end of 2014, Davis was yet to achieve a win on the PGA Tour, and had amassed total prize money of $12,610,796.
