2017 marks John's fifth consecutive season on the European Tour having secured his card at the final stage of Qualfiying School. Finishing tied in ninth at the pressure-cooker of Q-School once more showed John's mental toughness when the pressure is on. The highlight of the 2016 season itself was provided by a seven-under par finish at the British Masters.

John enjoyed a career highlight in 2015 where he made the cut at the US Open and finished 72nd in his second Major appearance. John comfortably kept his European Tour card in 2015 finishing 92nd overall in the Race to Dubai rankings.

John Parry enjoyed his second successful Qualifying School campaign in 2014 when he regained his playing rights at PGA Catalunya Resort, and kept his card in 2015 after finishing 92nd in the Race to Dubai.

He qualified for the U.S. Open and made the cut at Chambers Bay, his second major appearance after making his debut in the same event two years earlier. John won the Qualifying School Final Stage in 2012 and comfortably kept his card in 2013. He claimed his maiden European Tour win in 2010 at the Vivendi Cup in Paris.

Parry was on the cusp of the top 115 in the Race to Dubai heading into the event but beat the pressure to triumph, then finished third two weeks later in the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship. He then stepped up to the European Tour after finishing 14th in the 2009 Challenge Tour Rankings, helped by victory in the ALLIANZ Golf Open Grand Toulouse, where he shot a nine under par 63 on the final day to win by two from José-Filipe Lima.

He joined three of his 2007 Walker Cup team as European Tour winners – Welshman Rhys Davies, Northern Ireland’s Rory McIlroy and Englishman David Horsey. Amateur highlights included receiving the 2004 Peter McEvoy Trophy, winning the Spanish and Welsh Amateur titles in 2007, and the Danish Amateur and Under 21 Faldo Junior Series in 2005.

His first professional title came at the 2008 Ladbrokes Masters on the Europro Tour.
