Known best for his one-handed chipping technique, the Englishman embarked on his rookie season in 2015, but the campaign was wrecked by a wrist injury and he was out of action from June onwards. The problem blighted his Major Championship debut after he qualified for the U.S. Open Championship at Chambers Bay. 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. Will have a medical exemption for his first five events of the 2016 season.
