Spence was born in Tunbridge Wells, Kent. He turned professional in 1985 and has finished in the top 100 on the European Tour Order of Merit more than a dozen times, with a best placing of tenth in 1992. His two European Tour wins came at the 1992 Canon European Masters and the 2000 Moroccan Open.
Spence also appeared on the Sky TV scientific programme Brainiac: Science Abuse where he took part in "Brainiac Golf", in which a Brainiac went head to head against Spence. Every time a ball was putted it set off a fuse which ignited a caravan filled with a unique chemical compound, e.g. lead nitrate, which coloured the explosive flame.
Spence also has a radio show named in his honour, 'The Jamie Spence Show' on Bolton FM.
