    After graduating from Occidental College in 1984, Browne decided to turn pro. He plied his trade on the various mini tours across the United States for a number of years. His debut season on the Nationwide Tour came in 1990. He had his breakthrough year on the secondary Tour in 1991 when he won twice and had a further four top 3 finishes on his way to ending the season 2nd on the money list and hence securing his first ever PGA Tour card.

    Browne only managed a single top 10 finish in his rookie season and lost his card. He would alternate between the two Tours for a number of years. His breakout year on the PGA Tour came in 1998 when Browne captured the first of three PGA Tour wins. This victory came in July at the Canon Greater Hartford Open where he defeated Stewart Cink and Larry Mize after a play-off. This was one of two top 10s Browne registered on his way to finishing the season 47th on the money list. He would win again the following year this time at the MasterCard Colonial where he shot a round of 66 on Saturday and Sunday to win the title by a single stroke. A couple of weeks later he would finish in a tie for 3rd place at the Colonial.

    Browne would win for the third and final time on the PGA Tour in 2005 at the Deutsche Bank Championship after shooting a final round of 67 to defeat Jason Bohn by one shot. This came only a few weeks after capitulating in the final round of the US Open, shooting a final round 80 having been one shot behind the leaders going into the final day. He became eligible for the Champions Tour in 2009 and has won twice to date including the US Senior Open in 2011.
