Professional career

Brown played on the European Tour from 1976 to 1992. He won four times on the tour between 1978 and 1985. His first win was in the 1978 Carroll's Irish Open where he finished a stroke ahead of Seve Ballesteros and John O'Leary. He had further wins in the 1983 KLM Dutch Open, the 1984 Glasgow Open and the 1985 Four Stars National Pro-Celebrity. He often performed well in the British PGA Championship, finishing runner-up or joint runner-up four times between 1978 and 1983, three times behind Nick Faldo and then behind Seve Ballesteros. Brown finished in the top-10 of European Tour Order of Merit in 1978, 1979, 1980 and 1983. His best season was 1978 when he finished fourth in the Order of Merit.

Brown gained his PGA Tour card at 1983 PGA Tour Qualifying School. He played mainly on the PGA Tour from 1984 to early 1989, winning the Southern Open in 1987. Brown struggled in the early part of his first season, 1984, but from August he made the cut in his last 10 tournaments. Despite this he was 151st in the money list coming into the final event of the year, the Pensacola Open, and unlikely to retain his card by finishing in the top 125. Leading after three rounds, he eventually finished joint runner-up, lifting him to 112th in the money list. 1987 was his best season on the tour with six top-10 finishes. Brown had a poor start to the 1989 PGA Tour season and played the remainder of the season in Europe, losing his PGA Tour card. He continued to play on the European Tour but had relatively little success and retired in 1992.

Brown played in five Ryder Cup matches, in 1977, 1979, 1983, 1985, and 1987. He had a 4-9-0 win–loss–tie record, including two wins and two losses in singles matches. He was vice-captain under Mark James in the 1999 matches. In 1977 Brown switched his allegiance from England to Scotland and later represented Scotland in a number of team competitions, including the World Cup on four occasions. Playing with Sandy Lyle they finished second in the 1979 World Cup. Brown played in the Open Championship 14 times. His best performance was in the 1980 Open at Muirfield where he was tied for second place after three rounds but a final round of 76 left him in a tie for sixth place.
