Palmer Wins Sony Open
Posted January 25, 2010on:
Ryan Palmer, age 33, won his third PGA victory to start off the new year. The texan tapped in his birdie putt on the 18th hole on sunday to post a score of 66. That birdie gave him a one shot victory over Robert Allenby who missed his 10 foot birdie attempt on the final hole. “What a way to start the new year” Palmer stated after winning in Honolulu. Palmer told the press that all week he just tried to focus and stay in the moment. Obviously whatever he did paid off because he played steady golf every day. “What I got out of this is beyond words,” Palmer said. “It’s a great field. To do it every day … my bad round was two under par. I never once got upset or impatient. What I did today was the best round of golf I ever experienced.” Palmer’s final score was 15 under par, total 265. Ryan Palmer brought home $990,000 from the victory.
