Biography

Known best for his one-handed chipping technique, the Englishman will play his first season on The European Tour in 2015. Enjoyed a rich vein of form on the Challenge Tour at the end of the 2014 season, 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 end the campaign eighth in the Rankings. Only took up golf aged 14 having been a keen and talented tennis player. Ditched the racket in favour of the golf club and played regularly at a £75-a-year municipal course in Leicestershire. 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 from the green after he developed the yips. A huge Leicester City fan.
