Finally Palmer!


Englisman Jason Palmer finally caught his maiden win in Austria. He won The Uniqa Financelife Open Presented by Kürier 4 strokes clear of fellow Daniel Coughlan.

Jason Palmer has been running after win for months. Englishman from Leicester was until now Alps Tour best player without a trophy in his luggages. As far as figures are concerned, Palmer’s stats were almost perfect. His stroke average was 69.07 but even better he was the first “birdy maker” with almost 5 each round.

After months getting around a win, Jason Palmer shot the best score of the day, 65 to finally get the win he deserved. Since the beginning of the season, he finished 6 times at 7th place and better and twice runner up. This good result brings another satisfaction to England’s player, he takes the lead of the Alps Tour order of merit.

At second place this week, another Englishman, Daniel Coughlan. Scot Gavin Dear climbed on podium third step and confirmed 7th place at the Alps Tour ranking. Dear needs a good result next week too.

The Belgium Omnium is the first dead line for Alps Tour players. The top 6 (six) of the ranking will have exemption  for first stage of the European Tour qualifying stage. Englishman Cryer, Spain’s Balmaseda have to be careful of Scot’s good form.
