Ryan Palmer will be making his ninth U.S. Open start after qualifying for the season-ending Tour Championship last year. The Amarillo, Texas, native owns four PGA Tour victories, the last coming in the 2019 Zurich Classic of New Orleans with partner Jon Rahm. His last individual victory on the PGA Tour was the 2010 Sony Open in Hawaii. Palmer played one season at the University of North Texas before transferring to Texas A&M for his final three seasons. He turned professional in 2000. He bounced around the mini-tours before gaining status on the Nationwide Tour (now Korn Ferry Tour) in 2003. He finished sixth on the money list that year to gain his PGA Tour privileges for the 2004 season. That year, he earned his first PGA Tour victory in the Funai Classic at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Fla. Palmer's longtime caddie, James Edmondson, qualified for the inaugural U.S. Amateur Four-Ball Championship in 2015 at The Olympic Club.
