McLeary was born in Peterhead, Scotland. In 2004 he represented Scotland at the Eisenhower Trophy and represented Great Britain and Ireland at the St Andrews Trophy. His team won the St Andrews Trophy and McLeary won the individual event as well. He played college golf at Odessa College and Baylor University in the United States.
McLeary reached the final stages of qualifying for the Asian Tour in both 2005 and 2006, but failed to win full playing privileges and played some events with only a partial category. He has played on the second tier European Challenge Tour since 2006, having failed to win a place on the European Tour in his several visits to qualifying school. His best finish on the end of season Challenge Tour Rankings came in 2009 when he placed 24th, missing out on the top 20 needed to achieve full European Tour status. In August 2009 he picked up his first professional win at the Scottish Hydro Challenge.
McLeary lives in Bonnyrigg, Midlothian.
