He lost his card at the end of the 2004 season but regained it at the Tour School and celebrated with victory in the Dimension Data Pro-Am at Sun City in South Africa shortly afterwards.

Showed his continuing development as a Tour player in 2007 by finishing 54th on the Order of Merit, the third year in succession he had improved his final ranking. Was beaten in a play-off by Marc Warren in the Johnnie Walker Championship at Gleneagles in 2007.

Simon finished runner up at the 2008 Bank Austria GolfOpen presented by Telekom Austria and finished tied 19th at The Open Championship later that year.

Simon played Challenge Tour in 2010 and then won the European Tour Qualifying School in Spain to gain him his playing rights for 2011.

He was unable to complete the same feat at 2011 Qualifying School and missed out on his card for 2012.
