Summary

After a strong young amateur career in which he twice finished runner-up in the European Under-19 Championship, McGill turned professional in 2010.

The Scot reached the final of the minor-ranking event Scottish Open in 2012, but it wasn’t until 2015 that he announced himself to a wider audience.

At the World Snooker Championship that year, McGill upset defending champion Mark Selby en route to a berth in the quarter-finals in Sheffield.

A year later, McGill triumphed in a ranking event for the first time courtesy of a 5-2 final victory over Kyren Wilson in the Indian Open.

In 2017, McGill subsequently added a second ranker to his collection with success in that year’s Snooker Shoot Out.

Boasting a good all-round package and a seemingly decent temperament, it appeared as though McGill was going to establish himself as a permanent top 16 member.

However, a period of struggle ensued and any momentum he had was lost.

While he has rarely recovered any degree of overall consistency, McGill has at least tended to save his best snooker for when it matters the most – at the World Snooker Championship.

In 2020, McGill came within a frame of reaching the final only to be denied by Wilson in a gripping semi-final affair, and in 2021 he reached the quarter-finals again.
