Ryan Palmer in the Hunt


Good to see Ryan Palmer in the hunt at Colonial, but we can’t say it’s a surprise.
Palmer has struggled since last fall with a shoulder injury, having missed his last three cuts and finishing no better than 19th in 2009. Colonial, however, is familiar ground for the Texas native and Hogan’s Alley is the home course for his caddie “Big Game” James Edmondson.
Edmondson is a regular in the venerable club’s weekly games when he’s at home and he’s a former mini-tour player. According to caddie code, Edmondson is adept at showing up and keeping up, but Palmer may want him to speak up this week.
