David Drysdale (born 19 March 1975) is a Scottish professional golfer.Drysdale was born in Edinburgh. He turned professional in 1995.Drysdale currently competes on the European Tour, having graduated through qualifying school for the fourth time at the end of 2008. He had previously qualified for the elite tour in 2001, 2006 and 2007 through q-school, in addition to graduating directly from the Challenge Tour in 2004, when he finished 12th on the end of season rankings, largely thanks to a sudden death playoff victory over Mattias Eliasson at the Bouygues Telecom Grand Final.Prior to 2009, Drysdale's best finish on the European Tour had been as runner-up at the 2006 Russian Open. In March 2009, he equalled that when he finished second in the Open de Andalucia. That result in Spain followed a third place in the Joburg Open earlier in the season, and gave Drysdale the prospect of securing his playing privileges for the following season through the money list for the first time, and the possibility of qualifying for the season ending Dubai World Championship.
