This week is arguably one of the biggest in anyone’s career whether they be Rory McIlroy or the Chambers Bay club professional and Jason Palmer is of course no different. The US Open, to be held at Chambers Bay this year, is the second major of the year after Jordan Spieth romped to victory at the Masters back in April. Even though the Mertrux and Crouch Logistics ambassador isn’t a newcomer to the professional golf ranks, Jason is a major rookie and set to compete this week at one of the most talked about Open venues.
Having taken the week off from the European Tour two weeks before the US Open, Jason decided to play last week’s event, the Lyoness Open in Austria, in order to get match sharp ahead of his trip to Washington. However, after only 14 holes of his opening round, Jason had to retire due to a wrist injury, a complaint he has suffered with in recent months. Obviously to get himself in the best shape to play in his first major Jason returned home with no further damage and immediately went for a scan. The scan later revealed that there was no break or fracture and that Jason was to just ice and rest the injury whilst taking anti inflammatories.
Now back to somewhere near full health, Jason has made his way out to Chambers Bay and has already been on the difficult, firm and fast course in preparation for what lies ahead, the sternest test of golf any professional will face.
Jason gets underway at 1.00pm local time (6.00pm UK time ) in round one alongside Roberto Castro and Andres Romero teeing off on Thursday 18th June.
Jason would like to thank all of his sponsors including Mertrux, Crouch Logistics, Crest Link Apparel, PING, Titleist and Footjoy for their on going support especially this week.
