    After playing golf at Duke University, Ogilvie turned pro in 1996. He started playing on the Nationwide Tour in 1998. He won twice that season, at the Monterrey Open and the Greensboro Open. He had five more top 10 finishes on his way to finishing the season 3rd in the standings, thus gaining his first ever PGA Tour card.

    In his rookie season, Ogilvie played in 31 events, making the cut in 14 of them. His best result came at the Motorola Western Open where he ended the week in a tie for 9th. He finished the year 137th on the money list so he lost his card. However, Ogilvie regained his card at the PGA Tour Q School. He lost his card again in 2002. While playing on the Nationwide Tour in 2003, Ogilvie won twice, at the Jacob's Creek Open and the Reese's Cup Classic. He also lost to Vaughn Taylor in a play-off at the Knoxville Open. He finished the season 2nd in the standings.  He wouldn’t lose his card until 2014.

    His breakout year came in 2004 when he finished runner-up at the HP Classic of New Orleans. He had a further three top 10s to end the season 49th on the money list. The following season he would have two second place finishes including a play-off loss to Padraig Harrington at the Honda Classic. Ogilvie would finish the season 37th on the money list.

    His first and only PGA Tour win came in 2007 when he captured the U.S. Bank Championship in Milwaukee by four shots. He shot four rounds in the 60s to win in what was his 208th PGA Tour event. Ogilvie never really threatened to win again. In 2014, after 399 PGA Tour events, Ogilvie announced his retirement from golf.
