Palmer Finds Solace in Golf

EDISON, NEW JERSEY | When Ryan Palmer had finished with the last details of his work in The Barclays late Sunday afternoon, having tied for sixth at Plainfield Country Club, he walked outside the white clubhouse and into a long, quiet hug with his wife, Jennifer.

The hug kept going, like neither wanted it to end.

For four days, Palmer had found peace inside the ropes at The Barclays, played just a few miles southwest of New York City’s perpetual motion.

It was perhaps not the peace Palmer will eventually make with the sudden loss of his 71-year-old father, Butch, who was killed on Aug. 18 when the vehicle he was driving rolled over near his hometown of Amarillo, Texas.
