After turning professional in 1998 Robert was a teaching professional in the Midlands before securing and Affiliate Membership to the European Tour in 2003. Robert fulfilled his dream of playing on The European Tour when, from the Affiliate Membership he had taken, he finished 116th on the 2003 Order of Merit from his seven invitations to secure a place on The 2004 European Tour International Schedule. The highlight of this run was a fourth place finish at the British Masters. Robert has been ever present on the European Tour since this date despite no retaining his card on more than one occasion.
Winning just under €50,000 in 2005 Robert need to regain his Tour card. He is easily enjoying the best year of his professional career so far. Currently sitting 13 in the Race to Dubai - Robert is still waiting the first win of his professional career. He has come very close on 2 occasions this season. A tie for 2nd at the Alfred Dunhill Championship was followed later in the season by back-to-back second places - firstly at the BMW Italian Open and then The ‘3’ Irish Open.
