Wilkinson turned professional in 1987, and climbed the rankings to reach the no. 5 spot in the world within four seasons. He failed to sustain these results and has never won a ranking tournament, losing in the final of the 1991 British Open and the 1992 Scottish Masters as well as four semi-finals. He spent a decade in the top 32, but without reaching a ranking semi-final after 1992. He has made ten appearances in the World Championship, meaning that he has come through qualifying eight times, a record only bettered by John Parrott. His best runs were to the quarter-finals in 1991 and 1995. After dropping off the main tour he played in the PIOS whilst also working as a tournament assistant for World Snooker. Wilkinson did capture one major title, however when he became the World Matchplay Champion for 1992.
Gary is also sometimes known by the nickname "My Little Saw"
