Murray was born in Anstruther, Fife and having had a successful amateur career turned professional in 2006 when he reached the final stage of the European Tour Qualifying School. That qualified him for the Challenge Tour where he won for the first time in 2010 at the Scottish Hydro Challenge. The win helped him to a top ten end of season ranking which earned him a place on the European Tour for 2011.
On 4 October 2011, Murray finished third in the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship at St Andrews, Scotland - his highest finish on the European Tour. The Scotsman said after a fog delay on the third day, a young fan asked for his autograph - for the first time ever. Murray later said it was the young fan that inspired to play well as he enjoyed feeling the success.
After a poor 2012 season, Murray lost his playing rights and failed to regain his card at qualifying school by a shot after making a double bogey at the last hole.
