Whitelaw was born in Johannesburg. He turned professional in 1990 and has competed predominantly on the Southern Africa-based Sunshine Tour since then, where he has won three tournaments, including the Philips South African Open in 1993. He also played on the Canadian Tour during his early career.
Whitelaw played on the European Tour the late 1990s, having won his card at the qualifying school at the end of 1996. He won the Moroccan Open in 1997, and went on to finish 54th on the Order of Merit that season. However he was unable to repeat that performance in the following seasons due to a recurring lumbar spine injury, and lost his place on the European Tour at the end of 1999.
Whitelaw now works as a golf professional at University Park Country Club in Sarasota in Florida.
