Biography

His earliest golf memory was making his first hole-in-one with his dad watching. Not many people know he built his own workshop table and works on all of his own clubs. Supports the Arnold and Winnie Palmer Hospital and is the Palmers' grandson. Says if he weren't playing golf he'd enjoy being a builder or developer. The head cover on his driver was made from an alligator he caught himself. Would love to trade places for a day with an American soldier so he could appreciate all military personnel do.
