Prior to losing his card at the end of 1996, he played three seasons in the early 1990s, placing just outside the top 100 on the Order of Merit in 1994 and 1995. Through qualifying, he was able to rejoin the European Tour in 2003, but to regain his card at the conclusion of the year, he had to go back. He placed 53rd on the Order of Merit in 2004, which was a career high, but he was unable to improve upon it. As a result, he lost his card at the end of 2007 after being injured for a large portion of the 2006 season.
In September of this year, at the Pon Senior Open in Germany, Price, who joined the European Senior Tour in 2012, won his maiden championship.
