Born in Corowa, New South Wales, Fraser spent his early years working at a supermarket. He completed a distinguished amateur career in 2002, finishing as the top individual in the Eisenhower Trophy world teams event.
He turned professional in 2002 and completed his first seasons playing on Europe’s second tier Challenge Tour. In 2003, he won three tournaments in one month, the Danish Open, the Talma Finnish Challenge and the Russian Open, which was also a European Tour event. The last of those wins secured his card on the European Tour for 2004. He has maintained his playing status since by consistently finishing inside the top 120 on the Order of Merit, with a best of 25th place in 2012. Fraser has played in over 200 events on the European Tour and his best world ranking position was 51st.
On 25 April 2010, Fraser won the 2010 Ballantine’s Championship with a closing 69 to finish four shots clear. Fraser claimed his first victory in seven years, completing a wire-to-wire win during a weather reduced 54 hole event.
In June 2012, Fraser lost out in a playoff to Danny Willett at the BMW International Open in Cologne. He led after a 64 during round one, but finished with a bogey on the 72nd hole to fall into a playoff. Fraser three-putted the fourth extra hole to lose the tournament when Willett made his chip and putt for par.
Fraser won his third European Tour title at the inaugural Maybank Championship Malaysia in February 2016. He capitalised on a late collapse by leader Lee Soo-min, who had led by two with three holes to play. He won by two strokes, as Lee dropped four strokes in his final three holes, to end a winless drought of almost six years, during which he played in 119 events.
