Biography

Became a mini-celebrity in the golfing world when he secured his European Tour card for the first time in 2014, his one-handed chipping technique capturing the imagination of the sporting media. Earned a rookie season on the top tier courtesy of an incredible end-of-season purple patch in the Challenge Tour, winning The Foshan Open in China before following that maiden victory with a runner-up finish at the National Bank of Oman Golf Classic to rubber-stamp his path to the top table, eventually finishing eighth in the Rankings. A unique player in many ways, he only took up golf aged 14 having been a keen and talented tennis player. Immediately ditched the racket in favour of the golf club and played regularly at the £75-a-year municipal course in Leicestershire. Later joined the Alps Tour on the advice of close friend and fellow pro Neil Choudhuri, who later also recommended Palmer switch to his now-famous one-handed routine for shots inside 50 yards after he developed the yips. A huge Leicester City and football fan, he is also noted among fellow players for his hard work and dedication to playing as many tournaments as he can.
