  • 2 Ranking event wins: 2016 Indian Open and 2017 Shoot Out
  • McGill made a significant breakthrough at the start of the 2016/17 season, winning his first ever ranking title at the Indian Open in Hyderabad. The Scot dispatched 2015 World Champion Stuart Bingham 4-0, as well as scoring wins over the likes of Stephen Maguire and Shaun Murphy on his run to the final. He faced Kyren Wilson in a match between two of snooker’s strongest up and coming talents. McGill secured the title with a 5-2 victory. He claimed his second silverware of the campaign at the one frame Shoot Out, where he defeated Xiao Guodong in the final.
  • The most impressive run of McGill’s 2015/16 campaign came at the World Championships in Sheffield. During qualifying he was pegged back from 9-5 up to 9-9 against Craig Steadman, but held his nerve to get over the line in the decider. In the last 32 McGill put in a memorable Crucible performance, compiling two century breaks on his way to a 10-8 win over 2005 World Champion Shaun Murphy. The Scot bowed out 13-9 at the last 16 stage against Marco Fu.
  • In the opening 2014/15 event, McGill enjoyed a run to the semi-finals of the Riga Open, beating Judd Trump in the last eight before a narrow 4-3 loss against Mark Allen.
  • He then drew the attention of the wider viewing public with a run to the quarter-finals of the UK Championship in York. He scored a 6-5 win over boyhood idol John Higgins then had chances to beat Ronnie O’Sullivan before bowing out in a 6-4 defeat.
  • McGill backed that run up with another fantastic performance at the 2015 World Championships. He won three matches in qualifying to reach the Crucible and beat Stephen Maguire 10-9 in the opening round. The Scot then scored a fantastic win over defending champion Mark Selby 13-9 before succumbing to a 13-8 loss against Murphy in the quarter-finals.
  • McGill has been a national champion at under-14, 16, 19 and 21 level. He was runner-up to Stuart Carrington in Junior Pot Black in 2006.
