Ryan Palmer Biography – Ryan Palmer Wiki
Ryan Palmer is an American professional golfer who plays on the PGA Tour. He has won four times on the PGA TOUR; the Funai Classic at the Walt Disney World Resort in 2004, the Ginn sur Mer Classic in 2008, the Sony Open in Hawaii in 2010 and the Zurich Classic of New Orleans in 2019.
On April 28, 2019, Ryan won his first PGA TOUR victory in nine years, with Jon Rahm at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans. Ryan ended his lengthy drought, partnering with Jon to claim the Zurich Classic of New Orleans by three strokes over Sergio Garcia and Tommy Fleetwood.
At the eighth hole, he saved par by rolling in a 6-footer. At 11, he saved par with a 7-footer and rolled in an 11-footer for birdie at 14. One hole later, Rahm followed with a 24-foot birdie putt that essentially sealed the deal. That allowed Palmer and Rahm to enjoy their walk toward the 18th green at TPC Louisiana, soaking in a victory that, while shared, felt just as sweet as their individual accomplishments.
Ryan played golf at Amarillo High School and later for the University of North Texas and Texas A&M University. His PGA debut came in 1998 and he turned pro in 2000.
A native of Amarillo, Ryan moved to Colleyville in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex after becoming a successful golfer but is actively involved in charity work in Amarillo. He established The Ryan Palmer Foundation fund to help junior golfers by funding their tournament fees and North Texas PGA dues.
In 2009, the Palmer Foundation gave $100,000 to the Children’s Hospital at Northwest Texas Healthcare System to build a nine-hole putting green called the Ryan Palmer Foundation Healing Garden. Additionally, he donated $50 per birdie and $100 per eagle to the hospital in 2010 as part of the Birdies 4 Brighter Smiles fundraiser.
